Oregon Hospitals' Impact on State Economy Growing

Oregon hospitals and health systems directly and indirectly generated more than 129,000 full- and part-time jobs in 2010, an increase of 3.5 percent from 2009, according to a report from the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems (pdf).

Additionally, the direct and secondary economic activity associated with hospitals attributed roughly $9.2 billion to Oregon's "gross state product" in 2010, an increase of 3.6 percent from 2009.

Oregon hospitals also directly generated roughly $246.2 million in tax and fee revenues for state and local tax jurisdictions in 2010, according to the report. This does not include the roughly $146 million state hospitals paid in provider fees, which were used to secure $391.3 million in extra federal matching funds for Medicaid.
