Report: Hospital Workforce Survey, January 2024
Pennsylvania’s hospitals and health systems are working hard to develop a robust and diverse health care workforce to both serve the current needs of their communities and meet a growing need for care.
HAP’s third annual workforce survey examines hospitals’ efforts to recruit, retain, and develop talented workers; how care is evolving to support providers and patients; health care professional shortages; and strategies to eliminate violence against health care professionals.
While survey responses demonstrate that hospitals’ and health systems’ efforts are beginning to bear fruit, Pennsylvania is projected to experience the worst nursing shortage in the nation by 2026 and the third worst shortages of nursing support professionals and mental health providers. Significant investment and collaboration between educators, providers, and government will be essential to changing this trajectory and growing a health care workforce that meets Pennsylvanians’ needs.
