New York Business Journal, April 22, 2014
New York's doctors supported nearly 572,000 jobs while generating billions of dollars in taxes and other revenue, according to a new trade group report. The American Medical Association, or AMA, recently released a study of the economic impact of more than 720,000 total physicians in the U.S., including almost 60,000 in New York. In 2012, the physician industry played a role in nearly $100 billion worth of sales. That accounts for about 8 percent of the state's total economic output, or gross domestic product, the report shows. The national association of physicians released its economic impact report as health care issues dominated the news.
