"I try to get people to think of a hospital as a hotel with patients," said Tony Ferracane, vice president of human resources for Community Healthcare System.
"We have food, maintenance, environmental, quality control, transportation, registration, finance. On top of that, you have all the clinical areas: doctors, nurses, lab, pharmacy, radiology. Then you add to that the area where we're really growing is in the physician office practices and our immediate care centers. We need medical assistants, registration staff.
"On top of that, we have the electronic medical records, so we need people in information technology, medical records and coding, population and community health. We're focusing on more of a continuum of care and home health. There's quite a lot of jobs tied to health care."
