MHA CEO Brian Peters presented as the keynote speaker at the Rotary Club of Lansing’s weekly meeting May 13, discussing the MHA’s work supporting hospitals and healthcare systems across the full care continuum.
During his presentation, Peters kept his focus on the current workforce shortages Michigan’s hospitals have been facing. “The healthcare workforce staffing shortages existed before COVID-19 but have worsened and are expected to continue beyond this pandemic. Our hospitals must remain ready for and responsive to patients affected by COVID-19 as well as other patients who need urgent and life-saving care outside of COVID-19,” said Peters.
Peters also discussed the election forecast for the year ahead and what implications the midterm election will have on the healthcare community. To learn more about these issues facing healthcare, visit the MHA’s Workforce Sustainability and Elections pages.
