Mid Shore Health Improvement Coalition has health careers website

EASTON — The Mid Shore Health Improvement Coalition has launched a health careers website for job seekers and employers, midshorehealthcareers.org.

Jonathan Dayton, executive director of the Maryland Rural Health Association and chair of the Mid Shore Health Improvement Coalition’s provider recruitment and retention workgroup, said the workgroup is dedicated to bringing collaborative ideas and solutions forward to the many health care challenges, especially in rural communities.

“The Mid Shore is an exceptional area and we wanted to show it off,” Dayton said in a news release. “An idea emerged to create a website to  bring attention to all the fantastic things the region offers for providers and their families, and also serve as a hub for health professional job opportunities,” he added.

There are video stories of local providers who choose to live and practice here, and direct links to job postings from more than 100 organizations in the region.

“We encourage everyone to explore the website and help us out by sharing throughout your networks,” Dayton said in the news release.

Every jurisdiction in Maryland has a Local Health Improvement Coalition.

In 2021, the Mid Shore counties of Kent, Queen Anne’s, Talbot, Caroline and Dorchester banded together to share knowledge and leverage scarce resources. The coalition has grown to more than 200 members from 100-plus organizations.

Workgroups include: diabetes/healthy living; health equity/social determinants of health; tobacco/cancer; telehealth; health literacy; and provider recruitment and retention.

According to the news release, the coalition’s provider recruitment and retention workgroup is implementing multiple coordinated strategies to increase the numbers and types of health professionals, such as nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurse midwives, social workers and dental hygienists, as well as community health workers, who will add
capacity to the network of care in the Mid-Shore region.
