2014 Frontline Health Care Worker Champion: University Hospitals

From its flagship facility, University Hospitals Case Medical Center, to a regional network of community hospitals, outpatient health and surgery centers, and specialty care centers throughout Northeast Ohio, University Hospitals (UH) in Cleveland has been recognized by some of the most respected institutions and publications for its leadership in the healthcare industry. UH’s comprehensive approach to attracting, retaining, and developing talent has received accolades such as Training magazine’s Training Top 125 list of the world’s 125 best employee development organizations and Chief Learning Officer’s coveted Learning in Practice: Collaboration Award (Silver).

UH’s workforce development starts with the goal of expanding opportunities for current employees to prepare to move into higher-skilled areas of work, while simultaneously working with community partners to guide them in preparing residents from the Cleveland region to backfill positions left vacant by the incumbents who are advancing.
