Health Care Workforce Growth and Support
GHA supports efforts to increase the number of qualified, and job-ready clinical staff for hospitals to help quickly address the critical health care workforce shortage in Georgia. Additional funding for education programs, worker incentives and other initiatives all ensure that the health care workforce capacity matches the needs of our communities. As Georgia’s population grows, it is even more important that hospitals are able to appropriately respond to emergencies and other statewide health care demands. GHA opposes staffing mandates and other regulations that add significant costs or barriers to employing an adequate and skilled health care workforce.
