"Due to the ever increasing demand for skilled healthcare workers, it makes good economic sense to invest in your own people.  SAW provided a great service to our community by providing hospitals with a tool to funnel existing talent through the pipeline.  This was a win for the employer, the employee, and ARC  as we move incumbent workers upward and open entry-level jobs to new workers to join the workforce.”
