Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
The Advanced Group, a diversified professional staffing and clinical research organization, has announced today the launch of their newest business, MedAscend. MedAscend will provide physician, advanced practice, and allied health staffing for healthcare providers in the U.S.
“As the American population ages, the need for preventative and acute care is rapidly expanding,” said Leo Sheridan, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Advanced Group. “Healthcare reform will further tax an already overburdened healthcare system. Physician supply cannot meet demand, creating one of the fastest growing segments of the staffing industry. Not only will MedAscend provide critical talent and help to improve patient care, we are creating a business with a fresh, experience-focused approach to staffing.”
MedAscend is led by Jan Casford, who has been named President of the business. Jan comes to MedAscend with over 20 years of executive leadership within the healthcare staffing industry. Ms. Casford has repeatedly built successful healthcare staffing business units, specifically in allied health and advanced practice staffing. Ms. Casford is widely regarded as a savvy healthcare staffing leader who is respected for her strategic approach and passion for client service.
“We could not have found a more impressive person to lead MedAscend,” said Sheridan. “Jan Casford brings significant knowledge and experience to this business, and she is committed to creating a company that provides exceptional experiences for its clients and candidates. She builds teams that are equally as focused on delighting our customers at every step in the placement process. I’m confident that under Jan’s leadership, MedAscend will quickly become a leading provider in the healthcare staffing industry.”
