Economic Impact

Hundreds of New Jobs

The new Johns Hopkins Hospital complex is boosting the local economy. Hopkins is adding 700 people to its workforce to staff the new patient care facility, including nurses, respiratory therapists, social workers, pharmacy technicians, environmental services staff, security guards and visitor services personnel. Some of the new hires began their jobs over the summer. Meanwhile, more than 4,700 people worked on the construction of the buildings. Of those, almost 1,000 were Baltimore City residents and 280 of the construction workers lived in East Baltimore neighborhoods near The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
