Health services delivery is undergoing rapid growth and change in the United States and around the world - a change that has accelerated in the 21st century. As a result, the responsibilities of health care administrators and managers are continuously being redefined. In this dynamic environment, health care administrators and managers must keep pace by gaining new knowledge, new skills, and new competencies.
The Health Care Administration (MS-HCA) program at California State University East Bay exposes students to the latest theories, strategies, and technology in the field, with a focus on developing the professional skills desired by today’s health care employers. Students in the MS-HCA program acquire the analytical skills needed to explore new models of culturally appropriate patient-centered service delivery systems, develop the leadership skills needed to discover and implement creative solutions to problems, and cultivate their ability to participate collaboratively in diverse work teams.
The need for health care administrators and managers is growing nationally, and even more so in California. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, health care is one of the largest industries in the U.S., and the second largest employer, with more than 11 million jobs. According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the average annual health spending growth (6.1%) is anticipated to outpace average annual growth in the overall economy (4.4%) for the projection period of 2009-2019. By 2019, national health spending is expected to reach $4.5 trillion and comprise 19.3% of GDP.
