About Healthcare Management
Healthcare executives and other members of health care management teams have a wide variety of potential jobs. In addition to working in hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities, these people may work in pharmaceutical companies, health insurance companies, consulting firms and other related organizations. The demand for these positions also appears to be growing. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), “Employment of medical and health services managers is projected to grow 23% from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average (14%) for all occupations.”  Finally, healthcare executives don’t have to stay with the first position they take, as much room for career advancement exists in this industry.
