Travis County lies at the heart of one of the country’s best performing economies. During the past five years, employment in Travis County and the broader Austin region has increased at twice the national rate of growth. Since 2012, employers in the Austin region have added nearly 170,000 jobs, more than 70% of which have been within Travis County. During this period, the Healthcare industry grew by 16,000 workers and was one of the largest job creators in the region.
Workforce Solutions Capital Area commissioned the Healthcare Industry Analysis to better understand the labor market landscape and discover potential strategies to increase alignment between regional supply and demand for middle-skill healthcare careers. Early convenings of the Central Texas Healthcare Partnership found that middle-skill healthcare occupations are of particular concern in the region.
