A rehab program is only as good as its staff. Acquiring and retaining top rehab talent is critical for program effectiveness. Staffing issues can burden providers with additional costs and make it hard for them to deliver a consistently high quality of care. It’s no secret that medical industry is facing a growing talent shortage. Recent estimates predict that America will be short of more than 130,000 doctors by 2025 and specialized departments will suffer especially high shortage rates.

The Advisory Board has released a State of the Health Care Workforce dashboard to assess national data trends and predictions for the future of the healthcare workforce.
