Program Announcements for December 9, 2009-

Region I Healthcare Retention Tool-Kit -- This healthcare retention tool kit was created for healthcare employers as a technical assistance support service of the Greater New Orleans Health Service Corp (GNOHSC) grant program.  Funding for GNOHSC was provided by a $50 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services - Hurricane Katrina Healthcare Related Professional Workforce Supply Grant.  The grant provided recruitment and retention grants to health professionals for stabilization of the healthcare workforce in Region 1 following Hurricane Katrina.  

A community-based employer survey was distributed to Greater New Orleans health employers in March of 2009.  The tool kit was designed from that survey to create a document comprised of a collection of case studies, sample forms and other information to help support employers in continued efforts to address healthcare workforce retention.  

Research of best practices and resources shared in the kit are designed to be useful to providers and community leaders in hopes of creating a stronger and stable healthcare workforce in New Orleans and throughout Louisiana. The Region I Retention Council was formed in response to employer feedback and their input guided the creation of the tool-kit
