In 2003, more than $1.7 trillion was spent on health care in the U.S.—about 15% of the nation’s gross domestic product. Strong industry growth should continue as advances in medical research and technology foster new treatments, medications and delivery methods. Increased services to underserved populations and 75 million baby boomers approaching their peak years for health care needs will also drive demand.
