Health care has become a key driver of the Rochester economy, as the top two local employers are health systems. Together they employ about 35,000 people at hospitals, home care agencies, physical therapy centers, retirement communities, urgent care centers and more. In all, some 15 companies on this year’s RBJ 75 list of the largest employers in Rochester are connected to the health care industry, providing work for more than 63,000 people. Whether you work for one of these companies or take advantage of the many services they offer, the health care industry has a major impact on everyone in the community.
