The Denver, Colorado metropolitan area may experience a boom in employment opportunities next year specifically within the call center and scientific staffing genres.

Current healthcare providers have publicly announced the potential opportunity for 200 new jobs through the creation of a new call center and clinical research unit. This expansion is tied to the increasing patient need for dialysis treatment either while traveling or on a permanent basis, according to a release.

Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper said in a statement that the expansion was "welcome news" for the state. In his recently proposed budget for 2012-13, Hickenlooper recommended increasing the total spending for healthcare programs by 6.8 percent, the Denver Post reported.

The increasing need for scientific staffing across the Denver metropolitan area specifically comes as the healthcare and social assistance industry is poised to add more than 47,000 jobs in the city by 2020, according to the latest information from the state's Department of Labor and Employment. New employment opportunities in the field are expected to grow at an annual rate of 3.09 percent during that period.
