Health is an important aspect of human life — young or old, thus making the healthcare industry a very key sector in any part of the world. Healthcare is a vast industry that requires the service of project managers to manage its intricacies. According to a report by the National Institute of Health and Georgetown University, the growth of the healthcare industry has given room for up to 5.6 million jobs, and this is because Americans now spend more than 3 trillion dollars on healthcare every year. This rate is expected to grow every year.

Being a key sector, the activities, and quality of projects delivered in the healthcare industry will in little or no time have an affect on the availability and productivity of human resources. This is because it deals with human lives and their wellbeing. As the healthcare industry grows rapidly, the need for project managers becomes more apparent.
