The labor shortage in healthcare is real. For those in rural parts of the Finger Lakes and Central New York – it’s even more real.
Thompson Health in Canandaigua hosted a job fair this week – with hopes of filling upwards of 250 positions.
The organization has 250 positions open at its hospital and long-term care facility.
Officials say that around 40 people attended the job fair.
Hospital officials added that around half of those who attended will likely be hired.
The latest labor data shows a tight market with unemployment rates shrinking by the day.
