Health Services is a widely spread industry cluster, though not yet highly specialized in any regional grouping of Nebraska. It is identified as the number six primary cluster driving Nebraska’s economy, according to Battelle’s Competitive Advantage Assessment for Nebraska (2010). Both the US Bureau of Labor Statistics and the State of Nebraska Labor Market Information Office project the strong recent growth in health services to continue with above-average employment gains through 2018. These projections are consistent with past employment trends within this sector and highlight a continued need for healthcare.
