Economic Impact

Wisconsin hospitals and health systems provide high-quality, high-value health care. That not only helps bolster our families’ and neighbors’ health, but also our communities’ economic health. Our local economies experience tremendous benefits because of local hospital and health system vibrancy.

Statewide, hospitals and health systems directly employ more than 327,000 people in family-sustaining jobs with robust benefits.

Hospitals and health systems are among the largest employers in Wisconsin as we build healthier communities, create new jobs and support local businesses.
