2021 COVID-19 Workforce Report
MHA’s 2021 COVID-19 Workforce Report examines how the pandemic has influenced the hospital workforce and how it will alter workforce planning in the future. The report is built around five pillars of change, and each includes lessons learned from Missouri hospitals, as well as recommended action steps for hospital leaders, workforce planners and stakeholders. By using the lessons learned during the COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals — and partners in academia and workforce development — can transfer the best practices established during the pandemic to build a more robust hospital and health care workforce.
