Pennsylvania Workforce Investment Board

The Hill Group worked with the Pennsylvania Workforce Investment Board (PA WIB) and Pennsylvania Center for Health Careers (PCHC) to influence health care workforce development policy in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The Hill Group supports the PA WIB and PCHC in developing strategies to address the four issues below. You can read the entire reports by clicking the links.

  2. Pennsylvania’s Retention of Health Care Workers (pdf)
  3. Pennsylvania’s Clinical Education Initiative (pdf)  
  4. Pennsylvania’s Allied Health Careers Initiative (pdf)

The Hill Group conducted statewide, stakeholder participation processes including roundtables, focus groups, and surveys for each of the three initiatives. The Hill Group also collected and analyzed primary and secondary data that built support for each initiative.

The Hill Group’s innovative work with the Commonwealth resulted in a $2 million investment in nurse training. It supported the Commonwealth’s first large-scale attempt to illuminate the workforce challenges faced by multiple allied health occupations. It also helped build workforce infrastructure across the state.

The Allied Health Careers Initiative was one of the first and largest of its kind to address attraction, development, and retention of healthcare workers in a comprehensive manner across multiple (26) occupations on a state-scale. All four initiatives directly affect policy-making and funding decisions.
