ATLANTA– Gov. Brian P. Kemp today announced the establishment of a Healthcare Workforce Commission to address challenges in the hiring and retention of healthcare workers, including nurses, physicians, respiratory therapists, emergency medical personnel, and other clinical and nonclinical personnel.

“Our healthcare heroes have been through it all during the pandemic, and we thank them immensely for the sacrifices made and dedication shown,” said Kemp. “To ensure the future health of Georgians and Georgia’s healthcare system, it is imperative for the public and private sector to come together and examine  current needs and identify strategies for workforce recruitment and retention. I will take this commission’s findings into consideration as we continue working to keep Georgia the safest and healthiest place to live, work, and raise a family.”

Kemp established the commission by way of executive order. It can be found here. The 15-member commission must submit a Report of Findings to the Office of the Governor by Dec. 31, 2022. Members will be announced at a later date.
