In November 2015, STAT was launched as a new national media brand focused on health, medicine, and life sciences. Since then, we have grown to be the authoritative and trustworthy news media source in the industry and our all-star team of editors and reporters have won numerous journalism awards, including being named as a 2021 Pulitzer finalist. The STAT brand includes a website, mobile app, numerous newsletters, live and virtual events, and other products. STAT is affiliated with Boston Globe Media Partners but is independent from The Boston Globe.

STAT, the leading health and science site, is looking for a reporter to cover the business of providing health care in this country. This reporter will pursue ambitious and impactful stories about major hospitals, provider groups, and the future of the sector, rather than focusing on press releases or single mergers and acquisitions. They will dig deep into the trends and the personalities that are shaping hospitals’ financial activities, scrutinizing and illuminating the players that drive so much of the way patients experience health care in the United States.

  • Work with our data and multimedia teams to explore innovative formats for telling stories

Qualifications

  • A versatile and creative writer prepared to make connections and spot trends across the diverse landscape of health care delivery

  • Committed to excellence in your reporting.
  • Bonus points if you are deeply knowledgeable about hospital finance and experienced in telling stories about hospitals, doctors, and other clinicians.
