Medicare R US

Before Medicare... the AP has a good look at the Cleveburgh economy: Eastern Ohio economy may take cues from Pa.

A really great interactive map of medicare spending in the US is online here via MSNBC.

Note that we have some of the higher spending per Medicare recipient.. and I am pretty sure because of the age and income of our population we have a lot more such patients that other similarly sized regions. Multiply those facts and thus the reason that recession or not the local health care industry is weathering the times pretty well at least thus far.
