Health Care & Social Assistance in the Ocean State
Download (pdf)


In recent years (2001-2007), Rhode Island’s Health Care & Social Assistance private sector has experienced significant employment growth, adding more than 9,600 jobs to the local economy – the largest increase of any private industry sector in the state during this time period. Health Care & Social Assistance jobs now account for 18.2 percent of total private sector employment in Rhode Island, and industry sector firms pay 17.5 percent of total private sector wages statewide.

Many of the jobs in Health Care & Social Assistance offer workers above-average wages and good benefit packages, as well as educational and career advancement opportunities. An increased demand for medical services by an aging Ocean State population, as well as advances in medical technology, should continue to increase Health Care & Social Assistance job opportunities for years to come.
