It's not unusual for ambulatory services to beat other healthcare sectors when it comes to monthly hiring, but in July, it made up almost all of the industry's new hires.
Nearly 29,000 people got new jobs in the ambulatory healthcare sector last month, which was 95% of the healthcare industry's 30,400 new hires. Healthcare industry hiring as a whole fell 13% from June.
The overall economy added 164,000 jobs in July, and the unemployment rate was unchanged at 3.7%, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics announced in its latest jobs report, released Friday.
Ambulatory sector hiring grew 56% over the prior month.
