Without sufficient, well-trained health care professionals at all levels of the care continuum, access, quality, timeliness and safety for patients and staff is compromised. Shortages include specialty nurses, clinical lab scientists, respiratory and physical therapists, radiology technologists and more.
To support member concerns the Hospital Council will:
Collaborate with members to identify workforce needs and potential partners to address shortages
Where there is local support and opportunity, advocate for affordable housing for health care workers
Provide relevant education programs that address leadership, culture, patient engagement/satisfaction and management skills needed as part of integrated health care delivery
Hospital Association of Southern California (HASC) released an all-new white paper titled “Southern California’s Health Care Workforce: Challenges, Approaches and Solutions”.
In its analysis, the paper reviews data collected by HR leaders in Southern California hospitals regarding trends in hiring, recruitment, workforce planning, turnover and retention, training, and the physician shortage. Its unique focus is on Southern California hiring and workforce issues but includes important workforce trends and issues experienced throughout the state.
