Economic Impact

Wisconsin hospitals provide high-quality, high-value health care and have a $28 billion impact on the state economy. 

Statewide, hospitals employ about 110,000 people in family-sustaining jobs with good benefits. They are vital economic engines in our cities, towns and counties as well.

Hospitals and health systems are among the largest employers in Wisconsin as we build healthier communities, create new jobs, and support local businesses.  Across the state, there is a hospital located in nine out of ten counties, meaning patients can get the care they need, when they need it.
