Solutions for a Sustainable Workforce

Learn how children's hospitals and health systems are addressing workforce challenges through innovative initiatives and sustainable strategies.

Carrying out the extraordinary missions of children’s hospitals and health systems wouldn’t be possible without one common denominator: people. Yet the pandemic, the behavioral health crisis, and surges in respiratory illnesses have strained the workforce, resulting in higher turnover and lower recruitment than the industry has previously experienced.

In the face of these challenges, our member hospitals and health systems have worked to find sustainable solutions. Some approaches have proven effective, while pilot projects offer promising results. Find a collection of these strategies below. If your hospital has a program making an impact, we want to hear from you.
