"This is a perfect time if you're thinking about a career change to jump into the health care industry because there's such a need," said Chaudhuri. "There's positions in the clinical side, as well as the non-clinical side. And if somebody has no experience in non-clinical side, KPC Health loves to partner with people and promote education within the employee ranks so people can rise.
