Education makes up the largest employer in Wilmore, with over 40 percent of the town’s workforce. Healthcare, food, professional, and construction make up another 17 percent. The remainder of employment is a variety of roles and functions with no major comparable groups. As noted earlier, the Veteran’s Center as well as Wesley Village both contribute significantly to local employment and economic spending in town.
Wilmore is served by seven other medical institutions in addition to Wesley Village. Almost all are associated with senior care, but Jessamine County Hospice is technically classified as a hospital.
In terms of grade school facilities, Wilmore has one elementary school (grades 1-5) and one combined middle and high school (grades 6-12). For higher education, residents regularly access community college and university level institutions out of town. Most are within a 15 to 25-mile commute from Wilmore.
