1 PARTNERSHIPS Keys for Surviving the Health Care Shortages

2 Three Examples of Partnerships ASPEN High School –Alternative District High School –Dual credit offering CEDA-Robbins –Community Economic Development Association –Targeted programs with high employment rates and/or grant approval University of Chicago Hospitals Academy –Partnered with MVCC’s A.D.N. Program –UCHA Scholarship for employees of UCHA

3 MVCC Remedies to the Health Care Shortages: History and overview Responses to challenges Funding approaches Barriers Lessons learned

4 Health Care Industry Worker Shortages Employment of wage and salary workers in health services by industry segment, 2000 and projected change 2000-10 (Employment in the thousands) Industry segmentEmployment, 2000 Percent change, 2000-2010 Health services11,06525.5 Hospitals, public and private4,9609.8 Nursing and personal care facilities 1,79621.9 Medical and dental laboratories 20929.2

5 Additional Factors Contributing to the Shortage The elderly population, a group with much greater than average healthcare needs, will grow faster than the total population between 2000 and 2010 Advances in medical technology will continue to improve the survival rate of severely ill and injured patients, who will then need extensive therapy and care. New technologies enable the identification and treatment of conditions not previously treatable

6 Turnover Rates Contribute to the Healthcare Worker Shortage Additional openings will result as workers leave the labor force or transfer to other occupations. High turnover due to low pay and status, poor benefits, low training requirements, and a high proportion of young and part-time workers, such as nursing, psychiatric, and home health aides. In contrast, occupations with relatively few replacement openings, are those with high pay and status, lengthy training requirements, and a high proportion of full-time workers, such as physicians and surgeons. U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics

7 Challenge Consistent with local health care community needs and with MVCC’s strategic initiatives: Attract and educate new populations within the district to health care careers

8 Desirable Characteristics - Programs of Study Short-term training Good employment potential Credentialing mechanism upon graduation Marketable skills that may also be transferable to another program of study High quality programs with documented positive outcomes
