Who’s Hiring in Health Care - November 2009

Hospitals, Federal Government, Nursing Homes, Home Health, Clinics, and Outsourced Health Services top Health Care hiring during November 2009, based on job advertisements open for 30 days from the top job boards.

Led by large Hospital groups, including UnitedHealth, Tenet Healthcare, Kaiser Permanente, Kindred Healthcare, and Catholic Health Initiatives are the top Health Care hiring organizations in November.

Government organizations including the US Army (Including US Army Nurses, and US Army Dental), and US Department of Medical Affairs are adding staff to care for aging veterans, and to employ additional civilians in military hospitals and health care facilities.

Nursing Homes including Genesis HealthCare, HCR ManorCare, Golden Living Centers, Extendicare Health, Brookdale Senior Living, Sunrise Senior Living, and SunBridge Healthcare are building. Home Health providers Gentiva, Amedisys, Bayada Nurses, PSA Healthcare, and Amedisys are growing from increased demand from America’s seniors.

Outsourced service providers have grown as they provide specialty services less expensively than hospitals, and allow nursing homes & Doctors’ offices to realize savings by group service purchases. Companies including DaVita, Ageis Therapies, Sava Senior Care, Quest Diagnostics, and RehabCare are growing to meet these needs.

Interesting, there’s a Pharmaceuticals company on this list, ASN Healthcare at #32. ASN is based in India, and distributes generics. They are hiring nationally for reps to build their US sales force.
