UC Davis Health System and other medical schools and teaching hospitals are a major economic force, with a collective economic impact of $451 billion in the United States and $35.5 billion in California alone, according to a study released earlier this year by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).

The AAMC report also found that medical schools and teaching hospitals employ nearly one out of every 48 wage earners in the United States and provide nearly 200,000 full-time jobs in California. UC Davis Health System is one of the largest employers in the Sacramento region, with approximately 10,000 employees. It has $465 million in annual total payroll expenses for UC Davis Medical Center jobs, salaries, wages and benefits. Other key economic impacts of the health system include:

  • $262 million in purchased goods and services for the medical center, 80 percent of which comes from local vendors or local branches of national companies;
  • $74 million for medical center capital expenditures and construction projects, including electronic medical records, the School of Medicine's education and F. William Blaisdell, M.D., Library building, Davis Tower floor completions, and new surgery and emergency services facilities in Sacramento. The last project is still in process and ultimately will result in $424 million in expenditures.
  • $121 million in research grants and contracts, primarily within the UC Davis School of Medicine, with expenditures for research activities in both Davis and Sacramento.
