September 2010 |

The hospital workforce was surveyed regarding retirement planning, saving and investing behavior, as well as confidence in their retirement income prospects. Hospital workers are more likely than U.S. workers to be saving for retirement, but they are no more likely to have calculated how much they need to accumulate. Confidence levels among the hospital sector workforce regarding their prospects for a financially secure retirement generally mirror those of the U.S. workforce. Affording health care in retirement is a particular area of concern for hospital workers, as it is for all U.S. workers, and appears to be a key driver of overall retirement confidence levels.
