There are certainly plenty of opportunities to earn a good living taking care of others. In the past several months, we’ve seen an assortment of macroeconomic factors affect hospitals, physicians, and other providers’ abilities to provide care and sustain their operations. Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements continue to decline, investment income is disappearing, and national unemployment is higher than it has been in many years, adding to the record count of uninsured Americans who still need care.
