The Great Resignation
Health Centers have not been immune to the “The Great Resignation,” which has left many health care facilities struggling to fill vacant positions, trying to reduce burnout for current staff, and ensuring that paying overtime to current staff does not affect financial viability. Statistics have been staggering; one in five health care workers have quit their jobs since February 2022; of those that have stayed, 30% have considered leaving. Regardless of staffing circumstances, health centers still have the responsibility to provide high quality care to all, regardless of ability to pay. This has left many CEOs/Executive Directors wondering how they are able to combat staffing shortages.
While there isn’t a “one size fits all” solution, health center senior leaders can examine their organization to determine what can be done to mitigate resignations. The following are some things to consider as health centers navigate through challenging times.
While this is not an inclusive list, having honest conversations with employees may bring to light that your health center is missing or lacking in one or more of these health qualities. Once the conversations take place, and areas of opportunity to improve upon are recognized, it’s important to take action to improve the work environment.
It should not take “The Great Resignation” movement to evaluate the environmental challenges within health centers. Remembering that employees are a health center’s greatest asset will directly correlate to high quality patient care and improved clinical metrics.
