Posted January 24, 2012 in Press Releases
But health care alone can't make up for losses almost everywhere else
Mercy Health expects to hire 300 new doctors, nurses and staff this year on top of 400 added since 2009.
The Christ Hospital is adding 150 workers, and St. Elizabeth Healthcare has hired 20 new employees to work a just-opened spine center.
New numbers Tuesday show that more than 8,000 health-care-related jobs have been created in the region since the recession began in December 2007
