OSWEGO, N.Y. — Oswego Health says it has hired Nicole Damboise as a student-program liaison, a new position that will be “serving as an extension of the recruitment process.”

The health system cites data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics indicating employment in health-care occupations is projected to grow 16 percent between 2020 and 2030, “much faster than the average for all occupations,” adding about 2.6 million new jobs.

The projected growth is mainly due to an aging population, “leading to greater demand for health-care services.”

As the third-largest employer in Oswego County with more than 1,200 employees, Oswego Health says it created the brand-new student-program liaison post within the health system to oversee student engagement and talent-pipeline growth. The organization says the position is key due to the importance of recruiting and the need to secure the future of health care.

Damboise — described as an experienced recruitment specialist — will coordinate all student-related activities and programs per Oswego Health’s vision, mission, and values. She will be responsible for building relationships with local high schools and colleges, managing current talent-pipeline programs, coordinating all clinical rotations, and developing new pipelines to leverage local talent.

She has worked in student engagement, campus recruitment, and oversight of pipeline growth for five years. Before joining Oswego Health, Damboise held positions as the diversity sourcing specialist at HSBC for Allegis Global Solutions as well as a college advisor for On Point for College.

Damboise earned a bachelor’s degree in gender and women’s studies at SUNY Oswego in 2018 and is currently enrolled in its master’s degree program in strategic communication.

“This community deserves high-quality care, and our mission at Oswego Health is to provide just that by recruiting the best of the best,” Marq Brown, VP of human resources at Oswego Health, said in a statement. “And that is also reflective of the future of healthcare and inspires our youth to consider starting a career in healthcare. We’re excited to have Nicole join our team and have a designated liaison engaging and inspiring the future of healthcare in our community.”
