Health Care and Bio-Medical Services

Indiana Regional Medical Center has been serving Indiana County and surrounding communities since 1914. As a nationally recognized employer, IRMC continues to meet the needs of patients and employees alike. IRMC maintains its commitment to serving the region by continually re-investing in its facilities, technology and people in order to provide the highest levels of care possible.

IRMC’s vision to be the best community hospital in the nation is the cornerstone to our commitment of caring.

Indiana County has a robust health care presence that not only serves the health needs of a regional population but also provides employment in a diverse range of health care occupations.

Health care is one of the Pittsburgh region’s priority industry clusters, with over 9.7% of the region’s total employment in 2000. It is also one of only two clusters with a higher annual wage for Southwestern Pennsylvania than for the state of Pennsylvania or the United States.

Registered nurse is the occupation with the most employment, followed by nursing aides, orderlies, and attendants. Occupations are generally categorized as “professional” (e.g., medical doctor, surgeon) and “support occupations” (e.g., nursing aides, home health aides, medical assistants). Compared to professional occupations, support occupations tend to be lower-paying, are more likely to be part-time, and require lower levels of education and training.

Career clusters within the healthcare industry cluster include therapeutic services, diagnostic services, health informatics, support services, and biotechnology research and development.
