Hilltop in the Baltimore Business Journal

The Maryland Health Care Reform Simulation Model report produced by The Hilltop Institute at UMBC continues to get press coverage. The Baltimore Business Journal cites a Hilltop estimate of the number of new jobs to be stimulated by health reform in Maryland in the article, “Medical sector heightens focus on jobless to fill demand” [log-in required]. The article states, “A report by the Hilltop Institute at University of Maryland Baltimore County estimates Maryland employers will add 26,900 jobs by 2020 in response to health reform. Labs need assistants to oversee safety and animal care, and hospitals need people to transport patients between rooms; clean and decontaminate rooms; and talk to patients.”
