Explore how New Jersey’s hospitals contribute to the state, county and local economies.

New Jersey hospitals serve more than 15 million people annually, but their contributions extend far beyond the healthcare services they provide to their patients and their communities. Hospitals also are economic strongholds that bring jobs, income taxes and spending that support local and state economies.

In 2016, N.J. hospitals delivered:

  • $23.4 billion in total expenditures
  • $3.3 billion in purchased services
  • Nearly 144,000 jobs including 120,000 full-time equivalents
