It's not just the banks that are getting in on healthcare.
PricewaterhouseCoopers announced last week that it, too, will expand its health industries advisory practice. It will add 11 healthcare professionals to a variety of sectors: two in clinical informatics and healthcare delivery, two in supply chain management, two in governance and strategic planning, four in pharma/life science business information technology strategy, and one in revenue cycle management.
The new hires will join PwC's 1,200 healthcare professionals in the U.S. and 4,000 worldwide. The expansion occurs ahead of "anticipated health reform and the economic stimulus on health industry participants," in addition to a rapidly growing New York market.
"The expansion of our practice in New York is a reflection of today's healthcare environment. Health organizations are facing the implications of health reform on their bottom line, the need to invest in technology, and are under pressure to cut costs while delivering more services," said David Levy, M.D., leader of PwC's New York metropolitan health industries practice, PwC.
We've said it before: In 2009, health care is the place to be.
