According to the National Rural Health Association, a hospital is often the centerpiece of economic viability in rural America, providing jobs for a community’s residents and resources for its development. The positive impact of a thriving hospital starts at the heart of nearby towns and stretches across many miles, providing a vital boost to families and local businesses in the surrounding region. Nationwide, hospitals support more than 16 million total jobs, including 5.7 million direct jobs in health care and 10.3 million ripple-effect jobs, according to the American Hospital Association’s January 2017 report on the economic contributions of hospitals. The report estimates that every dollar spent by a hospital supports $2.30 of additional business activity. For rural communities, the link between hospitals and the local economy is even more pronounced, often due to the absence of other large employers.
In Casper, local jobs are of paramount importance for the long-term health of our community. In addition to the obvious clinical and ancillary healthcare jobs, there are a host of supporting positions, building and construction, facility maintenance, and more that provide an economic multiplier that expands the economy where we live.
The CAEDA/FC Medical Committee is comprised of local healthcare professional leaders who have a vested interest in expanding and diversifying our medical capabilities.
