2015 Frontline Worker Champion: The League of Voluntary Hospitals and Homes of New York

Established in 1968, the League of Voluntary Hospitals and Homes of New York is an employer association of 109 non-profit medical centers, hospitals, and nursing homes in the greater New York metropolitan area. The League acts as the bargaining agent for its members and represents them primarily in the negotiations with 1199SEIU, United Healthcare Workers East. With effective programs administered by the 1199SEIU League Training and Upgrading Fund (TUF), the League has been recognized as a 2015 CareerSTAT Frontline Worker Champion.

To overcome key skills shortages, the Training Fund offers accelerated programs to frontline workers, including high school completion, foundational skills, and allied health certificate and degree programs for high demand positions.

All frontline healthcare workers employed by the League’s employer members are eligible for up to 24 college credits per year in allied health programs and are supported throughout the process with case management, tutoring and career coaching.
