Heathcare Related Jobs Expected To Increase 2.9 Million by 2022

Yuri Arcurs

Jobs in the healthcare and healthcare related fields are expected to increase by a combined 2.9 million by 2022 in the U.S., the biggest jump among industries monitored by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

That’s part of an overall 15.6 million projected nationwide increase in employment through 2022, with the workforce growing 10.8 percent from 145 million to 161 million.

The Bureau says healthcare jobs, in particular, are growing because of “the long-term trends of an aging population and improved diagnosing and treatment options.”

Healthcare support is the fastest growing sector with employment expected increase 28.1 percent. Healthcare (Practitioners and Technical) is the second fastest growing sector at 21.5 percent.

A recent report in The Atlantic featured data showing the Bangor metropolitan area among the fastest growing areas in terms of overall job growth.

Townsquare Media Bangor is hosting a healthcare job fair at Spectacular Event Center in Bangor on April 1. Several area employers will be represented and recruiting for a variety of positions in the healthcare field.

Among those represented will be

  • AthenaHealth
  • Hibbard Nursing Home
  • Dorothea Dix
  • Stillwater/First Atlantic
  • ESM-Community Rehab
  • Assistance Plus
  • Ross Manor
  • National Health Care Associates
  • Woodlands Assisted Living
