: Medical and health services managers plan, organize, and supervise the delivery of health care. They determine staffing and equipment needs and direct the public relations, marketing, and finances of hospitals, nursing homes, HMOs, clinics, and doctor's offices. They may be in charge of an entire organization or only one department within it. These managers earn high salaries, but they often work long hours.
