MHP Creates $25.4 million impact

Mahaska Health Partnership generates 350 jobs that add $25.4 million to Mahaska County’s economy, according to the latest study by the Iowa Hospital Association.  In addition, MHP employees by themselves spend $5.8 million on retail sales and contribute $349,600 in state sales tax revenue.

“We recognize our impact in the community as one of the top five employers,” said MHP CEO Jay Christensen. “As a business leader, we have made a commitment to be good community partners.”

According to MHP Board of Trustees Chairman Jim Hansen, the current impact MHP has in this community is clear.  “What is also important to realize is that the ongoing availability of state-of-the-art healthcare plays a key role in the decisions of businesses and individuals looking to expand or relocate to our community,” Hansen said. “MHP is vital to our future economic success."

The IHA study examined the jobs, income, retail sales and sales tax produced by hospitals and the rest of the state’s health care sector.  The study was compiled from hospital-submitted data on the American Hospital Association’s Annual Survey of Hospitals and with software that other industries have used to determine their economic impact.

The study found that Iowa hospitals directly employ 70,484 people and create another 67,247 jobs outside the hospital sector.  As an income source, hospitals provide $3.8 billion in salaries and benefits and generate another $2.3 billion through other jobs that depend on hospitals.

In all, Iowa’s health care sector, which includes employed clinicians, long-term care services and assisted living centers, pharmacies and other medical and health services, directly and indirectly provides 329,793 Iowa jobs, or more than one-fifth of the state’s total employment.

“Just as no one provides the services and community benefits found at our hospitals, there is also no substitute for the jobs hospitals provide and create,” said Kirk Norris, IHA president/CEO.  “Iowa hospitals are at the foundation of Iowa’s economy and remain major employers and business partners in all parts of the state.  Iowa’s economic security is directly tied to having one of the finest health care systems in the nation.”
