Health­care hir­ing rose at a siz­zling 39,400 jobs in July, mark­ing the sec­ond straight month that job growth sur­passed the white-hot av­er­age monthly gain of 32,000 last year.

Modern Healthcare - - LATE NEWS -

The July hir­ing binge by hos­pi­tals and clin­ics hap­pened even as the Se­nate de­bated dif­fer­ent plans to re­peal the Af­ford­able Care Act and dra­mat­i­cally cut Med­i­caid fund­ing. A fi­nal re­peal bill failed 49-51 in the Se­nate on July 27. Hir­ing in am­bu­la­tory-care cen­ters led the way in July, adding 30,00 jobs; hos­pi­tals added 7,300 jobs, ac­cord­ing to the Bu­reau of Labor Sta­tis­tics.
