Health Care within the Tri Cities

Posted

Health care is a dynamic business – and a wellspring of career opportunities.

With the onset of Obama care, ongoing technological breakthroughs, and the continued growth of our nation’s aging population, career opportunities continue to flourish in the healthcare industry. The Tri Cities area is no exception.

The Tri Cities Picture
Since 2000, the Tri Cities region has been one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the United States. Kiplinger has ranked it one of the nation’s top 10 places to raise a family, and CNN/Money has named it one of its Top Ten Best Bets for gains in housing value, due to its stable economy.

The Tri Cities’ 20 largest companies employ approximately 32,700 people. Of these, more than 4 thousand, or 12.4 percent, are in health care. With a growing awareness of the region and its attraction, health care employees will continue to play an integral role.

Nursing Careers on the Rise
Throughout Washington State, the demand for nurses is on a steady growth pattern. This is particularly true in nursing specialty areas including these, to name just a few:

  • Certified dialysis nurses: These specialists are needed in a full range of inpatient, outpatient and clinical settings.
  • Certified legal nurse consultants (CNLC): Medical liability issues aren’t going away. For those considering a less traditional professional path, a career as a CNLC may be the answer.
  • Nurse practitioners: As insurance coverage expands under national health care reform, these primary and specialty care providers will find themselves in even greater demand.
  • Nursing information analyst: The job market for specialists who can interpret and communicate Big Data is exploding. The need to accurately interpret data is especially critical in the healthcare arena, as it relates to proper documentation and the elimination of medical errors.

Allied and Administrative Opportunities
In addition to nursing personnel, healthcare organizations are seeking skilled allied health and administrative support personnel.

  • The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 39 percent increase in physical therapy employment and a 30 percent increase in occupational therapy employment by 2020. Also on the rise is the demand for lab technicians, respiratory therapists, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.
  • Recent administrative hiring trends correlate with the ongoing transition to electronic medical records and advanced coding systems. You’re a high-value commodity if you have expertise in multiple types of insurance, as well as software programs such as Allscripts, Centricity Cerner, Dentrix and NextGen.

The Future Looks Bright
The economy – in the Tri Cities and globally – is on an upswing and healthcare is a big part of this good news story. It’s a great time to put your healthcare career plan in motion by working with a specialized niche firm like Medicalpros. Contact us today to learn more.
