The Friday Business Report with AZPM's Zac Ziegler and Inside Tucson Business Editor David Rupkalvis focuses on health care, one of the fastest-growing industries in Southern Arizona.

As the region's population ages, healthcare jobs continue to grow. Many of Tucson's largest employers are hospitals, and the Arizona Office of Employment and Population Statistics estimates 46,900 Tucsonans work in the health care field. But the field is about more than doing business. Health care companies keep a focus on making sure area residents stay healthy.
