The Power of One Vision

Today’s healthcare industry is changing and evolving every day to meet the needs of all populations - and in particular, Pennsylvania’s growing aging population.

As a healthcare manager, you can make a real difference. Your leadership can provide the innovation and creativity that will continuously improve the health and wellness of our communities. You can play a significant role in determining the future of healthcare delivery in America.

Explore the areas of healthcare delivery, financial management and managed care, healthcare policy, law, and ethics. You will develop the unique skill sets necessary for increasing opportunities in healthcare management and medical services positions - or to enter a graduate program in a related field.

You will graduate prepared to plan, direct, and coordinate medical and healthcare services in ambulatory care centers, medical practices, public health organizations, and assisted/senior living facilities.

Career Outlook

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 17 percent national growth rate for medical and service manager positions, with a median pay of $94, 500 per year. This is a much higher than average growth rate than that of other industries and clearly suggests a growing need for healthcare managers across the country.
