Training in hospital management opens up a number of career options. Large hospitals often have a team of managers to oversee operations in specific departments, such as human resources, health information and medical billing. Smaller hospitals may only have a few administrators that work in multiple administrative areas. A manager may also head the entire hospital administrative system.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), job openings for medical and health services managers should increase by 17% between 2014 and 2024. This growth is due in part to changes in healthcare insurance regulations, the need for cost control measurements and mandated computerization of hospital records. The BLS predicts that professionals with advanced training and administrative experience may find many employment and advancement opportunities.
