Healthcare Administration

Hiring demand for Healthcare Administrators is growing at an astounding rate even considering the immediate and lasting effects of COVID-19. Experts at the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimate a 17 percent growth in the employment levels of medical administrators in the United States through 2024. Thanks to more active lifestyles, Baby Boomers are projected to live longer; many will have increased need for nursing care facilities or hospital care.

Historically, healthcare administrator paychecks have also shown impressive growth. In 2015, median annual salaries for medical service managers were $94,500 per year. The median hourly rate of pay that medical administrators could command was $45.43. In 2019, those figures jumped up to $100,980 annually and $48.55 per hour, respectively.
