NYC Long-Term Care Providers Urged to Enroll in Surge Staffing GPO

New York City Emergency Management and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) have established a surge staffing group purchasing organization (GPO) to support health care providers to prepare for future staffing shortages during the pandemic. The City is encouraging nursing homes, adult care facilities (ACFs), and home care agencies delivering services to city residents to enter into GPO contracts now, even if they are not currently experiencing staffing challenges. By establishing contracts, facilities will lock in pre-set rates and be prepared to utilize the agencies in the event they experience shortages. More information is available here.
