The healthcare sector in the US added just more than 30,000 jobs last month, reports The Wall Street Journal's Health Blog. The overall economy added 243,000 jobs. However, the blog notes that the data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics breaks the numbers down by facility type, not job description. "For example, the report shows that hospitals added 12,700 jobs, but doesn't say whether those were nursing, IT, or cafeteria positions," it says.
