Healthcare still adding jobs

Wall Street Journal Health Blog, August 10, 2009

As the U.S. continued to shed jobs in July, the number of healthcare jobs kept growing. Over the past year, as the total number of nonfarm payroll jobs fell from 137.2 million to 131.4 million, the number of healthcare jobs rose from 13.3 million to 13.6 million. The sector has grown across the board, with job growth in doctors' offices, hospitals and home-health services.
