Job growth continued in September, albeit at a slower pace than in the summer months, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The health care field added 52,800 jobs, increasing to a seasonally adjusted 15.8 million. Office-based providers continued to add jobs, including physicians, dentists and other health care professionals.

September was the first month since April in which hospitals experienced job losses (6,400 jobs, seasonally adjusted). Nursing and residential care facilities added 1,600 jobs, the first month of gains since the pandemic began.
