USJ extends an inaugural invitation to the employees of its healthcare partners to advance their careers and address workforce demands

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (July 1, 2024) — In February 2024, the University of Saint Joseph (USJ) announced its new Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) online program to meet the growing need for individuals with professional training in healthcare management. Now, it’s taking the initiative one step further by offering significant tuition savings for the employees of its valued healthcare partners.

Beginning in the Fall 2024 semester, employees at Hartford HealthCare, Trinity Health of New England, Yale New Haven Health, First Choice Health Centers, Hospital for Special Care, Gaylord Hospital, Duncaster, Middlesex Health and Middlesex Hospital, Masonicare, Mercy Community Home Care, Eastern Connecticut Health Network, Waterbury Hospital and other partner institutions, will have the opportunity to advance their careers while continuing their important work at healthcare facilities across the state and the country.

According to U.S. News and World Report (2023), demand for healthcare managers has resulted in the significant expansion of this field. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports medical and health service managers in Connecticut earn $130,510 on average, placing the state in the top 10 in average salary in this sector.

The BLS projects that the job outlook for healthcare administrators will remain extremely strong through 2031, with an estimated 28% increase in the total number of healthcare management jobs.

In its commitment to developing future healthcare leaders, USJ offers the following:

  • A 20% tuition waiver for each course in the program for partner employees
  • One free course during the fall 2024 semester and one free course during the spring 2025 semester when enrolled in two MHA courses each of those semesters

These two offers result in a potential cost reduction of one-third of the program’s cost. These costs may be reduced even more if the employer offers tuition reimbursement benefits.
