Masters in Healthcare Degrees in Kansas

While aviation, animal health, and agriculture are the more dominant industries in Kansas, health care also has strong roots in the Sunflower State. In fact, the health care sector was the fifth-largest producer of total income and sales in the state, with hospitals employing an estimated 73,890 people, according to the Kansas Hospital Association (KHA). The KHA has identified health care reform, health information technology, and finance and reimbursement among the critical issues that the Kansas health care industry must address as a whole. As a result, the state’s hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, large medical practices, and other facilities will need to employ competent managers who have received the advanced knowledge in health care law, technology, and business that a Kansas Masters in Healthcare can provide. As of 2011, Kansas was home to 2,900 medical and health services managers, who had an average annual income of $82,680, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
