Grand View Health annually contributes nearly $188 million to the region’s economy, according to information provided by The Hospital & Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP). Grand View Health also supports more than 1,300 jobs in the Bucks County region.
“Grand View Health plays a major role in the economic and social well-being of our community,” said Jean M. Keeler, JD, Grand View Health president and CEO. “Not only do we provide care for our most vulnerable citizens, but we are changing the way care is delivered through a greater emphasis on outpatient care, population health and the use of new technology.”
The nearly $115 billion in statewide economic impact, an increase of $4 billion from 2014, includes the support of 634,000 jobs, direct and indirect. When announcing the state information, HAP President and CEO Andy Carter said: “Hospitals continue to play a critical role as top employers and economic engines, at a time when the state and nation face great fiscal pressures. They are dramatically changing the way they meet patient needs, and in doing so, new economic opportunities are being created.”
