There’s no end to the positive impact hospitals have on the health of communities. From jobs to culture to education to the environment, there is health in everything. MHA released a series of reports showing how Missouri hospitals are vital economic drivers.
Physicians provide and direct care throughout the health care system. Just as physicians help improve the health of patients, the places physicians live and work benefit from a healthy economic boost from physicians’ personal consumption and medical practice expenditures. This combination of a high income and running a medical practice that has many expenditures means that physicians have a significant economic impact on Missouri.
