Monroe County Executive Adam Bello today announced the creation of a new employment portal to help the county’s long term care facilities recruit staff.
In partnership with the Finger Lakes Performing Provider System (FLPPS) Workforce Investment Organization program, Monroe County is giving potential applicants the opportunity to input their employment information, credentials and background documentation in a single place and then be connected with hiring agents from multiple long-term care facilities. Monroe County is not the hiring entity for this specific effort, but applicant information will be compiled and made available to local nursing homes, assisted living and independent living facilities.
“Ensuring that our long-term care facilities have an ample supply of eligible employees is a key priority for us in our efforts to stem the spread of COVID-19 and protect the most vulnerable among us,” said Monroe County Executive Adam Bello. “I am pleased to be able to offer this service, which will help connect qualified people looking for jobs with the facilities most in need of workers.”
The site, at cs.monroecounty.gov/hrapply/apply/ltc will accept application information for positions including: Certified Nursing Assistant; Companion Care Giver; Licensed Practical Nurse; Nurse Coordinator; Patient Care Technician or Resident Care Aide; Social Worker: Registered Nurse; and for clerical, custodial, dietary and maintenance staff.
“The FLPPS WIO is happy to leverage our broad partnership, including hundreds of healthcare and community-based organizations, to let individuals know that jobs are available and Monroe County is here to help the workforce connect with long term care employers,” said FLPPS Executive Director Carol Tegas.
The Finger Lakes Performing Provider System (FLPPS) is a partnership comprising 19 hospitals, 6,700 healthcare providers and more than 600 healthcare and community-based organizations in the 13-county region. The organization works to build integrated health care delivery to better support Medicaid and uninsured populations across the Finger Lakes region.
