As the American economy slowly emerges from the depths of the recession, the healthcare industry is
slowly but surely seeing a surge in new employment. This is good news to many
who are looking for jobs in the healthcare field.

According to the U.S.
Department of Labor, 4 million new jobs will be created in healthcare by 2018,
which would be an annual increase of 2.3 percent from this year. The Times
Herald-Record adds to this research that healthcare is actually becoming one of
the fastest-growing industry in the U.S.

In Newburgh, New York, for
example, the Greater Hudson Valley Family Health Center has already created 42
new jobs in 2010 and will be adding 21 more in this year, the news outlet
explained. These positions will help manage the increasing demand for care in
the local community of Newburgh.

For the Orange Regional Medical Center
in Middletown, New York, the priority was employing information technology
specialists that would implement an ERS or electronic records system. This means
installing digital dictation technology including voice recording devices on
computers and dictation software that can be used by health specialists for
transcription.
