Healthcare has become the #1 job-creating industry in Eastern Kentucky.
But our hospital systems are facing a rising crisis — one that’s threatening the stability of our entire region.
Healthcare workforce shortages could soon lead to the downgrade or closure of critical hospital services. If this comes to pass, our economy will suffer significant losses. And all Eastern Kentucky residents will face new hardships.
The Eastern Kentucky Healthcare Action Plan asks the difficult but necessary questions:
- What’s at stake for Eastern Kentucky’s hospitals?
- How would the current trajectory impact our community’s future quality of life?
- How can we prepare more Eastern Kentucky residents for healthcare careers?
- What solutions are available today?
If we come together to implement the solutions in this plan, we can stabilize Eastern Kentucky’s hospitals and protect our region’s future.
