Northeast Regional Healthcare Industry Partnership
What is the Northeast Regional Health Care Industry Partnership?
The health care industry is one of the largest employers in northeastern Pennsylvania. Health care employers in the region face numerous human resource challenges and labor shortages, including:
- the need for a highly skilled workforce,
- misconceptions about career opportunities, and
- rapidly changing technologies.
The Partnership brings together health care employers to address common training and education needs; acts as a channel for training curriculum development to address industry demand; and collaborates with secondary schools, parents, and career counselors to increase health care career awareness.
