The Tulare-Kings Healthcare Partnership provides local healthcare champions an ongoing platform to prioritize, initiate intervention, and develop solutions for industry growth and economic success. 


Since its establishment in 2010, our Healthcare Partnership has encouraged collaboration among the industry and supportive public education and workforce partners. We've come from launching training initiative programs to establishing innovative structures like the Growing Health Leaders Conference, which aims to align the industry's priorities with talent pipeline development while continuing to strive toward addressing the industry's workforce needs. We are dedicated to driving progress and addressing challenges in the healthcare sector.
