Senator Rosenwald Introduces SB 308-FN, to Strengthen NH’s Health Care Workforce

February 12, 2019

CONCORD—Today, Senator Rosenwald introduced SB 308-FN, relative to the health care
workforce and making appropriations therefor. SB 308-FN takes a multitude of steps to address
New Hampshire’s critical shortage of health care workers, including: increasing Medicaid
provider rates; making appropriations to establish new positions and programs to develop and
enhance the state’s health care workforce; increase scholarship opportunities for students
majoring in a health care field; and develop and enhance programs of student offered in health
care at New Hampshire’s educational institutions.


Senator Rosenwald released the following statement after the hearing:


“Across New Hampshire, a workforce shortage is slowing our state’s economic potential. There
is no field where this is felt more strongly than in health care, where a lack of providers
negatively impacts the health and wellbeing of Granite Staters and our state’s ongoing efforts to
address the mental health crisis and opioid epidemic. I’m proud to submit legislation that
presents a holistic approach to bolster New Hampshire’s health care workforce.”
