VHA Pennsylvania (VHA) is an alliance of nonprofit health care organizations dedicated to helping its members deliver safe, effective, cost-efficient care. VHA accomplishes this goal by serving as a forum to connect health care organizations and providing industry- leading supply chain management services. Consultants from The Hill Group, Inc., CEOs from VHA member hospitals, and VHA staff discussed the importance of linking workforce and economic development in Pennsylvania’s health care industry at VHA’s CEO Regional Meeting.

In a presentation to the region’s leading health care providers at the CEO Regional Meeting, the consultants demonstrated the potential of this high-demand industry and the prospects for program performance and industry partnerships. The consulting team presented workforce development strategies which are most valuable to organizations within the health care field. The presentation highlighted the necessity to create demand driven systems between the workforce and potential employers. The consultants distinguish these demand-driven systems by identifying current and potential gaps in workforce, designing and implementing appropriate responses, and measuring results.
