California's health care industry employed more than 1.3 million people in 2012. Among these workers, slightly more than 50% were employed in ambulatory settings, about 30% in hospitals, and 20% in nursing or residential care facilities. An aging population, population growth, and federal health reform will likely contribute to increased demand.
