SCHA is committed to helping our hospitals recruit, develop and maintain a quality workforce. We gather data, develop new tools and reinvigorate existing programs and partnerships to meet our member’s current needs. We have focused our efforts on the four pillars we believe are essential to a successful workforce strategy:
- Build the pipeline of tomorrow’s healthcare workforce;
- Recruit and hire outstanding talent;
- Invest in the current workforce;
- Enhance the safety and quality of the workplace
Individual initiatives related to workforce development can be seen below.
