Workforce

America's hospitals and health systems are innovating and reshaping how they deliver care, which requires developing and planning for the workforce of the future.

An aging population, better care coordination and integrating behavioral and physical health care are all challenges the changing health care workforce must address.

The American Hospital Association’s Workforce Center supports hospitals facing unique workforce issues by providing the most up-to-date models and research on care delivery, supply and demand of health professionals, and clinical work environments.

As hospitals and health systems re-deploy providers in response to new care models, the resources below will help you implement strategies for workforce planning, recruitment, retention and development that best serve your community’s needs.
