ADRIAN–Siena Heights University and Henry Ford Health announced that Henry Ford employees can use a $1,000 tuition benefit to enroll in any one of 20 online healthcare certificate programs offered at SHU.

Additionally, full-time employees can apply a $3,000 benefit toward undergraduate or graduate degrees through SHU’s online educational platform, SHU Global. Part-time employees are eligible for tuition benefits as well.

In Michigan, the healthcare industry continues to grapple with a staggering 27,000 job vacancies in its hospitals. Since 2020, staffing has remained the top concern for hospital CEOs across the state. Nurses, technicians, and medical assistants are the top categories. SHU offers seven technician certificates and a medical assistant program, and SHU Global offers a RN to BSN 16-month accelerated program.

“We’re very excited to partner with Henry Ford Health,” said Siena Heights University President Doug Palmer. “Our goal from the beginning with launching the Workforce Development program was to help shape the future of healthcare workforce. This partnership absolutely helps us work towards that mission.”

Henry Ford Health employs over 33,000 people and has more than 250 locations across the state. Hospitals collectively employ 208,000 people in Michigan, making them one of the state’s largest employers.
