Masters in Healthcare in West Virginia

Coal may be king in West Virginia, but the health care industry also helps drive the West Virginia economy in a big way. In fact, three of West Virginia’s 10 largest private employers are in health care, and include West Virginia United Health System, Charleston Area Medical Center, and St. Mary’s Medical Center, according to Workforce West Virginia. Health care employers such as these and others seek experienced health care managers and clinical leaders to help them operate more efficiently while maintaining a high level of quality.

A West Virginia Masters in Healthcare could help prepare you to advance to such leadership positions, whether you work on the business side of health care, or wish to one day direct a clinical department or an entire organization. In 2011, West Virginia was home to 1,920 medical and health services managers who reported an average annual income of $78,280, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
