Kansas hospitals boost state economy

AHA News Now

Kansas hospitals directly employ 81,931 people and support another 61,855 jobs in other sectors, according to a new report from the Kansas Hospital Association. This employment generates $7.2 billion in income and $2.2 billion in sales for the state's economy. "Hospitals and health services truly represent an economic anchor in our state," said KHA President and CEO Tom Bell. "…While the estimates of economic impact are substantial, they are only a partial accounting of the benefits that health care in general, and community hospitals in particular, provide to the state."
