Crain's Detroit Covers Release of 2019 Economic Impact of Healthcare Report

Posted on March 01, 2019

Crain's Detroit Business reporter Jay Greene covered the release of the 2019 Economic Impact of Healthcare Report in an article published Feb. 28, the day the report was made available to the public. The report is produced each year by the Partnership for Michigan's Health, which includes the MHA, the Michigan State Medical Society and the Michigan Osteopathic Association. 

As stated in the article, the healthcare industry in Michigan employed more than 602,000 people in 2017, generating more than $38 billion in wages, salaries and benefits and making it the largest private-sector employer in the state. 

In a statement from MHA CEO Brian Peters included in the piece, Peters said, "Michigan's hospitals and health systems work daily to protect residents' health and well-being and, in the process, provide nearly 40 percent of health care's economic activity in Michigan. Hospitals and health systems support both physical and financial wellness."
