Initiates Training Program Partnering with Healthcare Employers

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Dec. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Workforce Alliance was awarded a $134,790 grant by the State of Florida to fund a workforce training program aimed at meeting the high need for skilled health care workers in Palm Beach County.

The program is titled the Palm Beach County Healthcare Workforce Initiative. The funding enables Workforce Alliance to form a partnership with employers in the healthcare field, St. Mary's Medical Center, and the Jupiter Medical Center, and initiate a strategy for recruitment and training of participants for healthcare jobs. For persons already employed in the health care field, the program will fund training for higher qualified positions.

"Despite the loss of jobs in a variety of other sectors in the past year, the demand for skilled healthcare workers in Palm Beach County continues to rise," said Kathryn Schmidt, President and CEO of Workforce Alliance. "This grant gives opportunities to many people for employment or better, higher skilled employment and contributes greatly to our mission of helping to drive economic growth in our County through innovative workforce solutions."

Ms. Schmidt added, "The State grant will be supplemented with $143,688 in funds from Workforce Alliance and the partnering healthcare organizations, bringing the total investment in the local economy to $278,478. The projected openings for new employment and promotions in the healthcare field represent a beacon of hope to the thousands of displaced, unemployed and underemployed workers in the County."

During planning sessions and the grant application process, the partners in the initiative identified the training courses and certifications that most closely match employer needs for recruiting new employees and promoting incumbent workers.
