(ONN) – State data shows the Cleveland Clinic has surpassed Walmart as Ohio’s largest private-sector employer.
The Cleveland-based hospital system has 50,825 employees, compared to Walmart’s 49,330.
That’s according to the Ohio Development Services Agency’s annual report on major employers in the state.
Other large private-sector employers include retailers such as Kroger and Giant Eagle, Chase Bank, and other hospital systems such as Columbus-based Ohio Health.
Honda, with 15,000 Ohio employees, remains the state’s largest manufacturer.
Cleveland Clinic says the system provides almost $18 billion in economic impact and supports nearly 120,000 direct and indirect jobs in the community.
