Overview

Health Care Administration is a growing field that improves the structure, maintenance and supervision of hospitals and other health care facilities. Strong business leaders are needed to oversee and organize the finances, patient information and staff within these facilities. This is one reason that the U.S. Department of Labor foresees an increase of 68,000 jobs in this profession by 2020.

Courses such as Health Care Finance, Human Resource Management, Health Law and Strategic Planning in Health Care at Alma College allow students to build upon a basic business administration foundation and focus preparation on this dynamic field.

Career

Health care administrators, such as facilities directors, human resource managers and medical records coordinators, are essential to the effective operation of any health institution. If you are interested in hospital finances, human resource management, assessment of quality patient care, health care litigation, budget management or public policy, this might be the right major for you.
