According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics most medical and health services managers in general need at least a bachelor degree to enter the health care occupation.
At the present time, there are approximately 283,500 health care managers currently employed in the United States. The majority (57%) of these professionals work in hospitals, physicians’ offices, or nursing care facilities. The remaining opportunities exist in federal government health care facilities, outpatient care centers, home health care facilities, insurance carriers, and community care facilities.
