Washoe Med enters housing business; industry competitors watching
Nevada hospitals' nursing shortage is certainly not a new phenomenon. And the boom in housing prices during the last three years hasn't made recruiting nurses from out of state any easier.
So Northern Nevada's largest hospital is responding with an aggressive homebuilding project for prospective employees. And area hospitals aren't the only ones watching Washoe, as other major employers struggle to recruit employees from out of state.
This is a local article from the Reno newspaper...very interesting thing the major hospital here is doing to try to recruit and retain nurses and other hospital staff. The median home price here is in the mid $300,000s!
