Healthcare jobs approaching pre-recession levels

The healthcare labor market--which, like other sectors of the economy, was hit hard by the Great Recession--is near its 2007 levels again. The sector added a robust 31,000 jobs in July--including a net 14,000 hospital jobs--and nearly 300,000 jobs overall in the past year. The data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics was a bright spot in an otherwise stagnant job market.
