Arizona Healthcare Workforce Center
The Arizona Healthcare Workforce Center, established in 2007, reports on Arizona’s workforce trends for nurses, physicians, physician assistants, pharmacists, physical therapists, respiratory therapists, EMT/paramedics, allied health professionals and other healthcare professionals.
Supply data is collected from health professional licensing agencies and includes administrative data, new licensee survey data and practicing professional survey data. Demand data is gathered from Arizona’s healthcare organizations. The results are relevant, credible, reliable, timely information and reports that drive Arizona’s healthcare organizations’ workforce decisions.
The Arizona Healthcare Workforce Center is sponsored by the Healthcare Institute at the Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association and is a collaborative effort on the part of Arizona’s healthcare community, state licensing boards, Arizona State University’s Center for Health Information and Research and the Arizona Department of Health Services.
The Center was funded through the generous financial support of:
- Arizona Healthcare Cost Containment System
- Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association
- BHHS Legacy Foundation, which is an Arizona charitable organization whose philanthropic mission is to enhance the quality of life and health of those it serves.
- Maricopa County Workforce Connections
- St. Luke’s Health Initiatives
