The demand to fill healthcare occupations at every level is strong in Palm Beach County. Although the majority of the demand is in critical and long-term care, the life sciences industry is also pulling from these occupations with companies like Biotest and Scripps Florida. In fact, Florida Atlantic University not only has its own medical school, but has a partnership with Scripps Florida that offers a dual M.D./Ph.D. degree.
CareerSource Palm Beach County has worked with a variety of hospitals in Palm Beach County providing training grants to build the skill sets of their employees. Jupiter Medical, Wellington Regional, St. Mary’s and Palm Beach Gardens Medical have all worked with CareerSource Palm Beach County to upgrade the skills of their employees.
As the healthcare landscape changes, we want to reach out to healthcare providers to insure a smooth transition into the newest skill sets for existing employees and new hires.
