New York: investment in healthcare workforce
New York has announced a $10 billion investment in healthcare over five years. The investment will support wages and bonuses for workers and investment in capital infrastructure. The investment will also increase the training capacity of medical institutions and new programs. The plan will offer free tuition and financial support for students in healthcare, provided they work in New York State for a time after obtaining their credentials; increase funding for Doctors Across New York and Nurses Across New York programs to incentivize workers to practice in underserved areas; and create apprenticeship job training programs for immigrant workers.
