Crain's Detroit Business Covers 2020 Economic Impact Report

Posted on March 02, 2020

Crain’s Detroit Business published an article Feb. 28 on the release of the 2020 Economic Impact of Healthcare in Michigan report. The report is published annually by the Partnership for Michigan’s Health, which includes the MHA, the Michigan State Medical Society and the Michigan Osteopathic Association.

The report shows that healthcare continues to be the largest private-sector employer in Michigan. Hospitals alone employ more than 234,000 people in Michigan, while direct healthcare workers earned $29.3 billion in wages, salaries and benefits in 2018.

In a statement from MHA CEO Brian Peters included in the piece, Peters said, “Michigan's health care providers are important economic engines for the state and their local communities. Hospitals and health systems not only protect residents' health and wellbeing day in and day out, they provide more than 40 percent of health care's significant economic activity in Michigan.”
