Despite Recent Layoffs, Hospitals May Be Poised for Hiring
“We are seeing folks cut as much as they could over the last couple of years. They can’t cut anymore. At the same time you have all these expansion projects that we have been chronicling over the past year or two that continue, and some of them are coming on line later this year and early next year. You are going to need folks to staff those facilities,” he says.
“Our bet is that in the next two to three quarters you are going to start seeing an increase in hiring. My sense is that there is a lot coming on at the end of this year, and the first quarter of next year. There will be a lot of staffing ahead,” he says.
I hope he’s right.
