Colorado Christian University is very excited about the popularity of our Health Care Administration degree programs. This rapidly-growing field is drawing students from all across the United States, and the degrees are presenting challenging academic programs to students who want to spend their lives in a helping field like the healthcare industry. The health care administration field is a rapidly growing one and is in need of qualified, compassionate, dedicated health care administrators to fill positions in Colorado and all over the country. The health care administration degree is one of Colorado Christian University’s newest degree programs with the first class starting in January 2013.
According the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of medical and health services managers is expected to grow 22% from now until 2020, faster than the average for all other occupations. People in healthcare administration jobs are committed to delivering reliable, high-quality health services by coordinating resources, addressing questions and concerns, keeping records, and providing organizational leadership in medical facilities like hospitals, clinics and urgent care centers. Healthcare administration jobs include positions such as hospital administrators, who are responsible for operational and financial management of hospitals and other large-scale medical locations; clinical managers, who oversee staffing, accounting, purchasing, and patient relations for clinics and medical offices; and health information managers, who maintain and update patient records as needed.
