As many of the “old guard” brokers and consultants have faded away, Pinnacle Insurance Brokers has emerged as a respected and trusted consultant and Broker for the Health Care Industry.
The Health Care Industry comprises about 595,800 establishments. These vary greatly in terms of size, staffing patterns, and organizational structures. About 76 percent of healthcare entities are offices of physicians, dentists, or other health practitioners. Although hospitals constitute only 1 percent of all healthcare entities, they employ 35 percent of all workers.
- As one of the largest industries in 2008, healthcare provided 14.3 million jobs for wage and salary workers.
- Ten of the 20 fastest growing occupations are healthcare related.
- Healthcare will generate 3.2 million new wage and salary jobs between 2008 and 2018, more than any other industry, largely in response to rapid growth in the elderly population.
- Most workers have jobs that require less than 4 years of college education, but health diagnosing and treating practitioners are highly educated.
