The article focuses on the U.S. healthcare workforce, which is facing staff shortage in 2009. According to the author, hospitals should always keep in mind to find the right talent even regardless of the state of the healthcare workforce. Values Coach chief executive Joe Tye said that values of the hospital must also be internalized by its workforce and Chris Van Gorder of Scripps Health added that departmental managers should also conduct once a month meetings with the staff to focus on the objectives of the organization.
