Healthcare Administration A Growing Field


Healthcare career opportunities are abundant across the country and in northwest Ohio. Careers for those interested in working in the medical field are not only focused on patient care, but are growing in the administrative area as well.

A need for qualified individuals who have the skills to manage health services has increased over the past years. Medical Service Managers, also called healthcare
executives or healthcare administrators, plan, direct, and coordinate medical and health services. This individual may manage an entire facility, a clinical area, a department or a
medical practice for a group of physicians. Medical and health services managers must direct changes that conform to changes in healthcare laws, regulations, and technology.

According to Bill Cassidy, president of the Toledo Herzing University campus, growth in this occupational area has become increasingly needed.

“Nationally, this field is looking to grow at about 17 percent, which is much faster than average.”
