Supporting Today’s Workforce as We Develop Solutions for the Future

The Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions Committee last week held a hearing aptly titled “Examining Health Care Workforce Shortages: Where Do We Go from Here?”

Clearly, all of our efforts to inform policymakers and the public about the urgent need to address the workforce challenges have resonated on Capitol Hill, as the tone and focus of this hearing demonstrated. And we welcomed the opportunity to not only work with the committee to inform the hearing, making sure the right questions were asked and most important issues were examined, but also to offer our views on how the government should respond.

As we said in our written statement, “long-building structural changes within the health care workforce, combined with the profound toll of the COVID-19 pandemic, have left hospitals and health systems facing a national staffing emergency.”

Our statement shared more than a dozen policy recommendations to help expand, revitalize and diversify the health care workforce.
