Analysts Said Healthcare Employment Would Decline - Instead, It Exploded

First few Article Sentences

Not long ago, the prevailing belief was that the post-recession and Obamacare-fueled growth in healthcare employment was coming to an end. Making predictions for 2018, healthcare industry analysts said that overall healthcare industry job growth would sag and that hospitals would experience declining jobs for at least some months. Their reasoning was that patient demand was softening because sign-ups for Obamacare had leveled off, value-based medicine would reduce hospital admissions and keep people healthier, and hiring would freeze up due to uncertainty about healthcare policy during the Trump administration. Healthcare employment trends were heading downward, they said. But, the reverse happened. Healthcare jobs grew at a robust pace in 2018 and have soared so far in 2019, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
