EO18-22. (No. 07-13) [Governor's Health Care Workforce Work Group

WHEREAS,

successful transformation of Vermont's health care system is essential to

improve the access to care for, and the quality of care provided to,

Vermonters; and

WHEREAS, to achieve

this transformation depends on having a health care workforce with the right

skills in the right place at the right time; and

WHEREAS, a

properly equipped health care workforce will require health reform initiatives

that cut across traditional lines of state agency and department responsibility

and will require maximum involvement of the community of educational and health

professional stakeholders.

of Vermont, do hereby establish the Governor's Health Care Workforce Work Group

as set forth below.
