According to the City of Cleveland, hospitals and related healthcare facilities are among the largest employers in northeast Ohio, with Healthcare jobs employing more than 70,000 workers and paying more than $3.6 billion in wages and benefits.
The city projects that 26.7 percent of job growth in the region during the next 10 years will be in healthcare occupations. Some of the area’s most notable healthcare facilities include The Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth System and University Hospitals.
Hospitals in Columbus include Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Doctors Hospital West, Grant Medical Center, Mt. Carmel, The Ohio State University Medical Center and Riverside Methodist Hospital.
In Cincinnati, hospitals include Bethesda North Hospital, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Christ Hospital, Deaconess Hospital, Good Samaritan Hospital, Mercy Hospital and University Hospital.
