Healthcare Services

Essential to the Economy

High-quality healthcare services are an essential part of any community. Naturally, the healthcare industry handles emergencies, facilitates healing, and improves everyone’s quality of life. But it’s also one of the most powerful economic engines in the country.

The Healthcare Industry is Thriving

The healthcare services sector has been, is currently, and will remain strong. In 2021, the national healthcare expenditure reached $4.3 trillion, including $633.4 billion in physician services and $125.2 billion in home healthcare.[1] This upward trend is all but guaranteed to continue.

The value of the market is expanding, too. The U.S. healthcare market was valued at $10.30 trillion in 2021; by 2030, that number is expected to balloon to $21.06 trillion.[2]

In line with this expansion, demand for high-quality healthcare services is also on the rise. Most health professions are projected to see steady job growth, including optometrists (10%),[3] chiropractors (10%),[4] dentists (6%),[5] physicians and surgeons (3%),[6] and more.

As home to a large aging population and continued healthcare tech innovations, California is uniquely positioned to reap the benefits of the thriving healthcare services industry.[7]

In Camarillo, we're home to the esteemed St. John’s Hospital Camarillo, one of the largest employers in Camarillo, and home to the only hyperbaric medicine unit and the first-ever cardiac catheterization lab in Ventura County.
