Other details of note:
- Hospitals accounted for more than a quarter of that number with an increase of 11,800 jobs.
- Nursing homes and residential facilities added 8,100 new jobs, which is a change, previous months had shown a reduction in positions.
- Physician’s offices added 9,300 employees, outpatient centers added 3,400, and home-health agencies added 2,700. This is an overall increase in ambulatory care jobs of about 4 percent from last year at this time.
