acknowledgements our company has received over the past several years and represents another milestone in our goal of being the most highly regarded company in the industry.

Omaha, NE (PRWEB) July 21, 2009
Traveling healthcare staffing company Medical Solutions, Inc. is pleased to announce its inclusion in the Staffing Industry Analysts, Inc. list of the fastest-growing private staffing companies in the country. Medical Solutions improved its ranking to #3 this year and placed 1st in the healthcare staffing industry with a compound annual growth rate of 82.4% from 2004 to 2008.
One of the core reasons behind Medical Solutions' industry leading growth is because the company is built on the belief that when employees are treated well, good things will come. Medical Solutions has proven that an environment of gratitude, transparency, appreciation and empowerment with its staff translates into solid relationships with its traveling healthcare professionals and client hospitals. The company is highly focused on taking care of its employees. This ranges from an onsite company concierge to a Chief People Officer in charge of maintaining the company culture. This in turn creates a workplace where employees are truly focused on the needs of their clients and travelers. The ultimate goal for the clients and travelers of Medical Solutions is to spend their time working on providing quality patient care, not on their agency.
"Making the Staffing Industry Analysts list of fastest-growing companies for the second straight year is quite an honor. This achievement is one of many "best in class" acknowledgements our company has received over the past several years and represents another milestone in our goal of being the most highly regarded company in the industry. We're thoroughly focused on providing superior customer service to our clients and travelers and have our outstanding staff to thank for the company's success." said Scott Anderson, President and co-owner of Medical Solutions.
Staffing Industry Analysts, an industry provider of business intelligence, market data, news and analysis, compiled the final list by analyzing the top staffing firms with compound average annual growth of 25% for the period between 2004 and 2008. The list ranks various professional and commercial staffing companies serving the medical, information technology and legal industries. In addition to 25% compound annual growth between 2004 and 2008, companies also must have had sales of at least $1 million in 2004. The average growth for all ranking companies is more than 50% per year since 2004, whereas the 2008 total industry growth was only 12 percent.
Medical Solutions has been able to prosper despite the economic downturn thanks to the company maintaining its values and culture says Craig Meier, Vice President of Client Development and Recruiting. "Weathering the storm has been tough, but I think we've been able to maintain because we have not sacrificed our core values and culture in order to gain short-term profits or make emotional decisions. It was not long ago when we were a small, new company fighting to gain market share and so we are used to it. We are fortunate to have great employees that believe and understand exceptional quality and customer service is our advantage. As long as we strive to improve each day in order to be the best at what we do, we will perform well, no matter what the industry and market does."
Internally, the continued development of their new Allied Health division has played a large part in Medical Solutions' growth. Its recent launch in 2008 allows Medical Solutions to provide another area of expertise to continue meeting the needs of their hospital clients. The Allied Health Division is anticipated to be 20% of the company's overall sales by the end of 2009.
The combination of quality customer service, outstanding employees and a servant leadership model is a large part of why Medical Solutions is the fastest growing private healthcare staffing firms in the country. Last year alone, the company grew more than 43% with revenue of over $43 million. Medical Solutions, which was first formed in 1997 as a direct placement company, was purchased by the current owners in 2001 and restructured to solely provide healthcare travelers with initial sales beginning in 2002. The company recently moved its corporate headquarters to another location in Omaha effectively doubling its office space to accommodate the growth, was voted as one of the Top 5 companies to work for in Omaha in 2009 and is currently ranked No. 472 on the list of Inc. 500's fastest growing companies.
