Economic Development for Healthcare Leaders, Part One

The National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) and the Center for Economic Analysis of Rural Health (CEARH) invite you to join the first of two economic development webinars for rural health care leaders on Wednesday, December 8th at 3:00 pm EST. In this webinar, CEARH Director Alison Davis will cover the basics of economic development: what it is, why communities “do” economic development, and the primary stakeholders involved in economic development efforts. 

Economic development usually takes three forms in communities: business attraction, business creation (entrepreneurial development), and business retention and expansion. All three forms aim to create new primary jobs that pay more than the prevailing wage, increase the amount of income coming into the community from outside its market area, and create greater capital investment in the community. It’s vital for health care leaders to be aware of economic development efforts locally, and ideal if leadership can play an active role in economic development efforts. The webinar will explore success stories where health care leaders have played an active role in local or regional economic development initiatives that affect the local health care sector.
