Greater Brockport Healthcare & Social Assistance
The Health Care and Social Assistance sector comprises establishments providing health care and social assistance for individuals. The sector includes both health care and social assistance because it's sometimes difficult to distinguish between the two activities. The industries in this sector are arranged on a continuum starting with those establishments providing medical care exclusively, continuing with those providing health care and social assistance, and finally finishing with those providing only social assistance.
The services provided by establishments in this sector are delivered by trained professionals. All industries in the sector share this commonality of process, namely, labor inputs of health practitioners or social workers with the requisite expertise. Many of the industries in the sector are defined based on the educational degree held by the practitioners included in the industry. Excluded from this sector are aerobic classes and non-medical diet and weight reducing centers.
Data for this industry sector in Greater Brockport, which consists of the 14420 Zip Code, can only be broken down into "Education services, and health care and social assistance." Both are strong industry sectors locally due to the presence of Lakeside and Unity Health Systems and The College at Brockport.
