NYACH works with industry partners to identify pressing workforce needs and supports training initiatives that provide viable career opportunities for low-income and unemployed New Yorkers.  NYACH facilitates communication between employers, training providers, and other partners on program design, curriculum enhancement, and job placement/promotion, and provides programmatic and financial support for initiatives.

 

NYACH initiatives prepare students to work in the following healthcare industry sub-sectors:

 

AMBULATORY CARE

This sub-sector is focused on providing care to patients not requiring a hospital stay. This includes medical, diagnostic, and treatment services provided in an outpatient setting, such as an ambulatory care clinic, the office of a physician or other healthcare provider, or medical and diagnostic laboratory.

 

ACUTE CARE

This sub-sector is focused on providing inpatient care at hospitals. Care is usually short-term and includes medical, diagnostic, and treatment services for patients with serious illnesses or injuries, and those recovering from surgery.

 

HOME CARE

This sub-sector is focused on care provided in the patient’s home. This includes a range of services, from nursing care and physical therapy to assistance with daily tasks, and serves patients with both post-acute and long-term care needs.

 

NURSING AND RESIDENTIAL FACILITY CARE

This sub-sector is focused on providing residential care in combination with nursing, supervisory, and other types of required care. This may take place in a nursing care facility, a residential mental health or substance abuse facility, or other type of residential care facility, and may include both post-acute as well as long-term care.
