MHA released its annual workforce report that publishes 2022 turnover and vacancy data from 128 Missouri hospitals for 28 hospital-based staff positions. The data also are available for 10 workforce development regions and Missouri’s critical access hospitals.
Although the rates of turnover and vacancy among nurses and many of the other surveyed professions decreased in 2022, the workforce challenges remain high — exceeding all survey years other than in 2021. The report discusses the reasons behind the staffing challenges, as well as the innovative programs and investments being made to address them.
