A strongly-supported workforce is essential to a successfully-transformed health care delivery system. Across the Adirondacks and North Country, we are working with our partners to address workforce needs to develop and implement successful strategies for recruitment and training.

Workforce Initiatives

Workforce Funds

  • Recruitment Fund: Success of health care transformation requires appropriate staff where they are needed most. To assist partners in the recruitment of staff necessary to effect change, the Recruitment Fund was developed. The guidelines for submission and application can be found at Workforce Recruitment Fund.
  • Training Fund: In order to support partner training needs to ensure staff is prepared for changes in health care delivery, the Training Fund was developed. The guidelines for submission and application can be found at Workforce Training Fund.
