Masters in Healthcare in Washington

Washington’s health care industry employs about 1 in 10 workers, or approximately 222,650 people, according to the Association of Washington Business. Many of these are jobs that provide good wages as well, with the average salary for provider and technician careers at $79,470, the AWB reported. In addition, job opportunities in health care are expected to continue to grow as health services and facilities expand and the baby boomer generation ages in Washington, placing more of a demand on health services, a local news outlet reported. Expansion of facilities and services points to a continued need for qualified health care managers and clinical leaders to efficiently direct these operations, particularly in health care organizations that work with the elderly.

A Washington Masters in Healthcare can equip experienced clinicians and other health care professionals with the skills and knowledge necessary to lead clinical departments and manage healthcare finances and staff. In 2011, about 6,870 people were employed as medical and health services managers in Washington, and these professionals earned an average of $108,620 that same year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Many of these managers worked in the Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue metro area, in which the average salaries were higher than the state average, at $115,180, the BLS reported.
