Serving the Community Well: The Economic Impact of Wichita's Health Care and Related Industries

MSSC Impact Report Cover

The Center for Economic Development and Business Research completed an economic impact study of health care and related industries in the Wichita metropolitan area. The study, prepared for and released by the Medical Society of Sedgwick County (MSSC), lists the healthcare and social assistance industry as second among the area’s top five industries.

By level of employment growth, the health care industry in Wichita ranked number one out of 19 private industries from 2009 to 2012. In terms of wage growth, this industry has seen a much lower increase than other top industries in the area, ranking 17 out of 18 private industries in the Wichita MSA.

The health care industry in the Wichita MSA employs 18 percent of the total workforce.
