The unique aspects of healthcare HRM generate a demand for a focused, specialized text. HEALTHCARE HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT is relevant to instructors in traditional academic settings as well as to practitioners, consultants and other managerial professionals in various healthcare settings like hospitals, nursing homes, physical therapy and long-term rehabilitation facilities, the military and even companies and organizations that are peripheral to those in healthcare settings such as the pharmaceutical industry and government agencies. Given the changeable context of the healthcare industry, there is a continuous need for current, topical information on healthcare management. This text is the only one of its kind and its potential will become more fully realized with the publication of the second edition.


  • NEW! The second edition has been updated with topics that are important in the field of human resource management and will find their application in healthcare settings such as new techniques in performance management, the impact of technology on HR and HR Metrics.
  • NEW! A new boxed feature, "Ethics, Standards and Compliance" adds discussion of ethics and how ethical considerations help determine standards and compliance.
  • NEW! Discussion questions are interspersed throughout at the end of sections to enliven chapters, increase student interest and help improve students' critical thinking skills.
  • Each chapter begins with "Healthcare HR Insights," actual examples of programs, solutions, and/or initiatives undertaken by various healthcare organizations and relevant to individual chapter content.
  • "JCAHO and HR Management in Healthcare": The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) is a quality review organization that accredits healthcare organizations relative to a set of quality standards. These standards include such areas as patient care, governance and life safety codes and human resource management. The JCAHO feature specifically links chapter content with these standards so that students can later successfully demonstrate competency in the workplace.
  • Glossary: As a reference to those new to HR, healthcare, or both, key terms can be found quickly at the end of the text.
  • Balanced Approach: This text provides a careful balance of HR management theory and specific healthcare applications with examples appropriate to each.
  • Mini-Cases: Each chapter concludes with a mini-case presenting issues in the context of human resource management healthcare.
