Health Care Connect
The health care industry is an important component of both the business and residential communities in Southeastern Pennsylvania. To address the workforce needs of this specific segment, the Chester County Health Care Partnership (CCHCP) was formed. Since then it has been renamed, Health Care Connect, to reflect its regional reach. The Partnership shares best practices, talent development/recruiting information, program ideas on trends and issues, and training grants to stabilize and strengthen the local workforce and enhance patient care. HCC is comprised of over 60 organizations including hospitals, continuing care retirement communities, home health companies, acute rehabilitation facilities, educational institutions, and county development offices sharing the goal of improving the quality of health care delivery in the surrounding region.
Sustainability for this Industry Partnership comes from private sector contributions, both cash and in-kind, federal, state and local grant support including the Chester County Workforce Development Board/PA Department of Labor and Industry, and the efforts of numerous volunteers.
