Answer:

The Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) in the website of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) does not provide wage data specifically for receptionists that worked in hospitals. However, it does provide wage and employment data for receptionists in general.

According to the OOH, receptionists earned a median annual pay of $30,050 in May 2019. That translates to a per hour rate of $14.45.

The OOH also provides the following list of top industries where receptionists worked, including median hourly wages for each:

  • Healthcare and social assistance: $15.08
  • Professional, scientific, and technical services: $14.70
  • Administrative and support services: $14.49
  • Religious, grantmaking, civic, professional, and similar organizations: $13.38
  • Personal care services: $12.13

Employment of receptionists is expected to increase by four percent from 2019 to 2029, the same amount of increase expected for all professions in general. One reason for the increase in employment is the growth of the healthcare industry and the need for more administrative workers and receptionists to work in various healthcare offices.
