- Inaugural Event Debuts as Part of Popular NY HR Week(TM) Event; Early
Bird Registration Available Until March 28 -
HORSHAM, Pa., March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- HR professionals attending Human Resource Executive(R) Conferences' HR in Healthcare(TM) Conference, being held April 15 - 17, 2008, will have the opportunity to learn from industry leaders in the healthcare industry. The conference is part of the 6th Annual NY HR Week(TM) event at the Hilton Hotel, easily accessible in New York City.
Scripps Health, Lee Memorial Health System, Griffin Hospital and Healthcare Performance Solutions -- as well as a number of HR vendors serving the specific needs of the healthcare industry -- will be on hand. Consult A Doctor, Corporate Synergies, HIP GHI, International Medical Resources, Mercer, Perceptive Software, Pinstripe and WorkSTEPS are among the exhibitors at HR in Healthcare(TM).
Jill Schwieters, executive vice president, Pinstripe Healthcare, said, "We are pleased to be participating in the HR in Healthcare(TM) Conference this year. Talent and recruiting challenges are not new to the healthcare industry; however, it is refreshing to see healthcare organizations start to more aggressively seek new solutions to these problems." Schwieters added, "With the significant shortages that are already impacting the industry in a variety of roles from nursing to transcriptionists, it is time for healthcare to look to other industries for best practices. There is no short term solution to solving the healthcare talent shortage so it is critical to look for proactive and disciplined approaches to win the war for talent in the markets they serve."
The healthcare industry faces a growing number of unique HR challenges. For example, as the supply of nurses dwindles domestically, more organizations are seeking to source and recruit nurses globally. The ability to understand the differences in nursing practices across different geographies as well as immigration requirements and cultural differences means HR professionals in the healthcare sector must be armed with the right knowledge and tools to be effective in recruiting and retaining nurses.
One of HR in Healthcare(TM)'s most anticipated events is a panel moderated by Tom Olivo, founding partner, Healthcare Performance Solutions. Joining Olivo are George Mikitarian, president and CEO of Titusville, Florida-based Parrish Medical Center; Joan K. Mollohan, senior vice president, human resources of New Orleans-based Ochsner Health System; and Craig Morley, CFO of Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Healthcare. The panelists will discuss "The State of HR in Healthcare" and delve into how HR can help make healthcare organizations more effective, adaptive and creative. Mikitarian will also present a separate session on creating a culture that attracts, retains and motivates the highest levels of physician engagement.
