CVS Health Opens New Workforce Development and Community Resource Center

CVS Health announced the opening of a new workforce development and community resource center designed to help the Baton Rouge community overcome employment barriers and increase access to local healthcare services. Located off Essen Lane, the facility includes a Workforce Innovation & Talent Center (WITC), which offers comprehensive career skills training and job placement that includes a CVS Pharmacy mock store, simulated pharmacy environment, and authentic, hands-on externships at local CVS Pharmacy locations. This facility also includes a new Community Resource Center (CRC) supported by Aetna Better Health of Louisiana. The combination of WITC/CRC marks the first time the company has co-located these critical community resources, bridging the gap between career training and health services that help overcome impediments to stable employment.
