Spokane’s oversized health care cluster

Health care is the #1 industry in Spokane County (after government). The following is from 2001 data compiled by EWU in 2004:

Health care is also relatively more significant in Spokane County than in comparable counties in the Western United States. In Sacramento County CA, the relative impact of health care was about 40 percent less than in Spokane County, while in Pima County AZ it was about 20 percent less and in both Washoe NV and Ada ID Counties about 35 percent less. These findings carry over to total impacts where impacts were 20 to 40 percent less than they were in Spokane County.
