Ambulatory and other health jobs also slowed compared with their 2016 average growth rate.  However, Hospital employment growth accelerated over the same three month period according to the latest Houston Economic Indicators report for the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.

Healthcare Employment Growth Drives New Development

Houston’s healthcare industry remains strong and continues to be a major driver of development and employment. More than 325,000 Houstonians work in healthcare, the city’s second largest employment sector.

From December ’14 to October ’16, a period when mining and logging lost nearly 25,000 jobs due to the energy downturn, health care created nearly 23,000 new jobs. Houston can expect to see more health care growth and more jobs, according to the Greater Houston Partnership’s 2017 Houston Employment Forecast. As a result, Houston has experienced robust development of new medical office buildings, outpatient facilities, hospital campuses as well as hospital campus expansions.
