Winter Park, FL, April 10, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- With recent surveys illuminating the staffing problem that plagues the healthcare industry, one Central Florida based company is taking on the challenge nationally. Healthcare Scouts launched this month as a national permanent placement firm that specializes in connecting highly qualified, hard to find, licensed healthcare professionals with healthcare clients, creating a win-win scenario for both the profession and the professional.
It’s no secret that the healthcare workforce shortage is particularly severe among qualified nurses, pharmacists, laboratory technicians, and respiratory therapists. The Bureau of Health Professions estimates that the number of healthcare jobs will be forced to grow to nearly 14 million by 2010 to meet the increased healthcare demand as the “baby boom” generation reaches 65 years-old.
“Healthcare professionals are being asked to work more hours and cover more patients than they can to maintain acceptable levels of quality and safety because of this shortage crisis,” says Don Langmo, CEO of Healthcare Scouts. “The need for licensed healthcare workers is needed more than ever.”
However, as Healthcare Scouts President Brian Hudson explains, numerous healthcare leaders across the country are finding placement relief and improving the quality of their services by turning to the national firm.
“We have numerous clients who turn to us because they have exhausted local resources to find the perfect candidate,” says Hudson. “But, that’s where we help. Healthcare Scouts has such a strong grasp on the industry nationally, and so many contacts across the country, we create an environment for our clients to find their ideal professional quickly and conveniently.”
Some of Healthcare Scouts’ loyal clients include Lab Corp, Ameripath, Kindred, Eckerds, Yale University, and HDI. The national firm specializes in placing qualified candidates in pharmacy, nurse case management, laboratory, and respiratory therapy positions.
