“It’s All Here” Massachusetts – Especially for Healthcare Professionals!
From whale-watching to dog-sledding, from Paul Revere to John Fitzgerald Kennedy and from awe-inspiring fall foliage to pristine white sands, The Bay State really does have it all! This is the state that has sparked two revolutions, one for independence and one for industrial growth, and the birthplace of four presidents: John Adams, John Q. Adams, John F. Kennedy and George H.W. Bush. It has given us the first subway system, sewing machine and college in Boston, the first U.S. zip code in Agawam, and the first Dunkin Donuts, Howard Johnson’s and railroad in Quincy. Volleyball was invented in Springfield, and where the first basketball game was played. These games are still played on the site of America’s first public park and its first public beach.
In more recent history, Massachusetts may be called the “ birthplace of modern health care reform”. Its Chapter 58 of the Acts of 2006 was the predominant model for the Affordable Care Act (ACA). To date 96% of the state is covered by some form of health care insurance – an achievement in itself! The relative success of both these laws in making healthcare affordable and accessible to state residents has resulted in an increased demand for healthcare professionals. The Massachusetts Department of Workforce Development has projected that almost 64,000 new jobs will be added this year to the sector. According to salarybystate.org , Massachusetts’ PTs, OTs, SLPs and nurses earn 14% more than the national average salary. The state also ranks high as a biotech and medical research hub, with world class hospitals conducive to a cutting edge environment for healthcare careers.
Massachusetts has always led by example, whether it was the creation of a nation or the creation of better healthcare for its citizens. Come and enjoy its great natural beauty, its living history and its great employment opportunities for healthcare professionals!
