Read the Case Study: Rural 116-Bed Hospital Faces Ongoing Staffing Challenges
Located in a rural Midwest city with a population of 23,000, this hospital is geographically isolated and has dealt with long-term workforce shortages and high patient volume. This combination created a reliance on high-cost travelers that negatively impacted labor costs and profitability. The hospital partnered with local schools, but most nurses chose not to reside in the area long-term, leading to ongoing staffing challenges. Also, new nurses lacked experience, and with older nurses retiring, the experience gap was growing larger. The organization began looking for innovative solutions that aligned with its mission, vision, and values.
