Report: Healthcare major part of NH economy

AP/Boston Globe, October 8, 2008
A new report from the New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies says the healthcare industry plays a major, and growing, role in the state's economy and is one of the leading sources of jobs. The report says hospitals often are the largest employer their labor market, and that by 2016 healthcare could account for one out of every nine jobs in the state. The group also suggests the increasing importance of healthcare to the economy and the growing cost of insurance create a public policy dilemma.
