Health care services in Minnesota are world renowned. Minnesota ranks among the top four in the nation for high-quality and low-cost hospital and health care. Minnesota’s 143 hospitals and health systems employ more than 121,000 people. Four of the 10 largest employers in the state are in health-care delivery. Further, Minnesota continues to be a leading venue for the medical device industry.

Given Health Care’s importance in Minnesota, the PIPELINE program works with the industry to determine workforce needs and create tools to address those needs as seen in the competency models for in-demand occupations that are well-suited to dual-training opportunities.
