Austin, Texas (PRWEB) September 28, 2012
As Texans improve their health and live longer, the healthcare industry has had to grow and adapt to keep up with the increasing demand for services, according to Austin Realtor Brian Talley of Regent Property Group. The local population is growing and it is aging, and this lends to a robust healthcare job market and more opportunities for continued growth in the Austin real estate industry.
In Austin, healthcare ranks second among the area's fastest-expanding job sectors since 2007, trailing only to the leisure and hospitality sector, according to the Austin American-Statesman. The Austin metro area had 80,000 healthcare jobs in 2011, an increase of 18% from 2007, and of that total, one-quarter were hospital jobs.
Because of rapid changes occurring in the industry, large healthcare providers like Seton Hospital and other providers have had to diversify their services, with many now offering outpatient care, wellness care, and home health care that can come to neighborhoods throughout the city, including outlying neighborhoods like Eanes ISD and Lakeway.
Additional expansion is happening at doctor and dentist offices as well as at offices of other healthcare providers, including optometrists and chiropractors. The sector also includes centers for child day care, vocational rehabilitation, individual and family services, and community food, housing and other release services. “The growth of the healthcare industry is also fueling the health of other fields, including software companies and financial management,” Talley said. “When part of Austin’s economy thrives, it positively impacts the entire city.”
