Karen DeSoto posts that Lourdes Valdes, manager of Employment and Training Development at Jersey City Medical Center — a Barnabas Health facility –was selected to attend a “President’s Call to Action” Summit at the White House on April 24.
She joins more than 100 employers that attended the Upskill Summit at the White House. These employers have more than five million workers, and they advocate for their business’s front-line workers to rise in their careers to enjoy higher wages.
Ms. Valdes coordinated several projects at the hospital where front-line workers obtained the skills needed to advance their careers, and she shared those stories.

“The Summit organizers were very interested in our programs which educate and prepare our diverse workforce with the skills needed to move into such key roles as Patient Care Techs, Medical Billers and Coders, and EMT’s,” said Valdes. “In addition to the recognition we received, the goal of this conference was to share program success with other industries and hospitals around the country.”
