Healthcare roles are consistently in high demand these days—in fact, they make up six of the 10 fastest-growing occupations in the U.S., according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. But you don’t necessarily have to work in a hospital or clinic to build a successful career in healthcare. There are plenty of ways to work in this field—just take a look at the 16 companies below, all of them hiring now.
The employers on this list are all making contributions in a variety of important areas, from creating life-saving technologies (Philips) to helping people living with chronic kidney disease (Satellite Healthcare) to working on the development of a COVID-19 vaccine (City of Hope, GSK). And while many of these organizations will always need nurse practitioners, case managers, and certified technicians, they’re also hiring for other types of roles that keep their businesses going, including sales representatives, software engineers, and business analysts.
