Cincinnati’s 10 Most In-Demand Jobs

The Health Collaborative focuses our pipeline efforts on critical, in-demand jobs in the Greater Cincinnati region with vacancy rates greater than 10%. This focus ensures our efforts are aligned with our members’ needs and our mission to increase the size, diversity, and preparedness of our region’s healthcare talent pipeline. Below is a summary of the top 10 key jobs we are currently prioritizing.

Collecting, analyzing, and sharing actionable healthcare workforce data

The big picture

The total economic impact of the healthcare industry in the Greater Cincinnati region is $33 billion, which includes direct employment of more than 140,000 jobs, including both clinical roles and non-clinical roles. Healthcare is our region’s top employment sector and one of the fastest growing, and increasing our region’s healthcare workforce is more imperative now than at any time in the last several decades.

As of 2023, among the 140,000 total healthcare jobs in Greater Cincinnati, more than 117,000 of those employed incumbents are in clinical healthcare roles and this figure is projected to grow another 1.5 percent in just the next two years according to JobsEQ and Chmura Analytics.

Technical Note: For purposes of defining clinical healthcare roles within the labor market, we used JobsEQ to pull market data within the Cincinnati MSA for two major categories within the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) code system, 29-0000 (Healthcare Practitioners and Technical Occupations) and 31-0000 (Healthcare Support Occupations). For more information on SOC codes, please visit the BLS page to access the full List of SOC Occupations.

Our approach to data

Since 1990, we have been collecting and analyzing healthcare workforce data in the Greater Cincinnati region to help our member healthcare employers make informed workforce decisions. We publish two Employer Workforce Survey reports each year that include current data on the health systems’ workforce vacancies and retirement rates, along with age distributions for key positions. Now, in addition to our own data, we have access to a national labor market analytics tool, JobsEQ, which allows us to research labor market analytics and real-time job posting data.

We are committed to using data to inform and align efforts to meet workforce demands and build a workforce reflective of our community.

A Big Thanks To Interact for Health

Our deepest thanks to Interact for Health for their input and support of this dashboard.

Current workforce demand

In our 2024 annual survey with data effective December 31, 2023, the regional health systems’ overall vacancy rates remain high at 8.5%, though that number is a decrease from the 10.4% figure reported at the end of 2022. A healthy vacancy rate for our health systems is about 5%. However, among Greater Cincinnati’s regional hospitals, 15 different job titles of the 60 roles we survey have vacancy rates exceeding 10% as of December 31, 2023. An additional 12 job titles report vacancy rates of 7-10%.

This data informs where The Health Collaborative prioritizes our efforts to reduce vacancy rates and fill critical workforce gaps.

Registered nurse vacancy rates

Registered nurse vacancy rates did decline to 11% with our 2024 annual survey, down from 14.4 percent at the end of 2022. However, this 11% figure still highlights that RNs continue to be in extremely short supply in the Greater Cincinnati region as this is the third highest RN vacancy rate in Greater Cincinnati since 2003. Additionally, as of year-end 2023 the average-time-to-fill for RNs across all health systems in Greater Cincinnati was 110 days, significantly higher than the 2022 figure of 85 days

The growing deficit in nurses continues to fuel The Health Collaborative’s workforce efforts, including our regional and statewide efforts to reduce the deficit of this critical healthcare position.

Real-time job posting analytics

A second key regional indicator to measure workforce demand is real-time intelligence (RTI) active job postings. While active job postings do not necessarily reflect the total number of job openings available at any one time, they do provide a real-time look into the near-term market trends.

Below is a trend showing active job postings in the last 3 months among Greater Cincinnati healthcare job titles, including a comparison of the same period from a year ago.
