Omaha, NE (PRWEB) July 30, 2008
Traveling healthcare staffing company Medical Solutions, Inc. is proud to announce its inclusion in the Staffing Industry Analysts, Inc. list of the fastest-growing private staffing companies in the country. As the 10th fastest growing company on the list, Medical Solutions ranked 3rd out of all healthcare staffing firms making the list.
"Being recognized on the Staffing Industry Analysts list of the fastest-growing companies in the country is an honor we're extremely excited about. Our success validates the quality of our employees, management philosophies, focus on information technology and sound strategic business practices," said Medical Solutions president and co-owner Scott Anderson.
Staffing Industry Analysts, Inc. has published the fastest-growing private firms list annually for the last 4 years in addition to being recognized as the authority on research and analysis of the staffing industry.
Medical Solutions specializes in placing nurses and allied health professionals in temporary travel nursing jobs nationwide. Beginning in 1997, Medical Solutions has become one of the fastest growing companies in the travel nursing industry. Today 106 internal employees work at Medical Solutions' headquarters in Omaha, NE. Medical Solutions currently provides travelers to nearly 900 client hospitals nationwide.
Medical Solutions has seen a growth in revenue from $18 million in 2006 to $30 million in 2007 and are projecting revenue of nearly $50 million for 2008. Solid strategies and the increasing nursing shortage have driven their business.
Medical Solutions attributes their rapid growth to several factors. In addition to being one of the first travel nursing companies to be Joint Commission certified, their flexible pay and billing structures allow nurses and allied health professionals to personalize their compensation packages. Medical Solutions also broke the industry standard by providing travelers with a dedicated Recruiter for their entire career with them. Conversely, they also became one of the first companies to provide their client hospitals with a dedicated Client Manager. These innovations, combined with an unwavering commitment to providing excellent customer service have led to Medical Solutions' success.
Medical Solutions has a clear goal of becoming one of the largest traveling healthcare staffing firms in the country. Towards this end, Medical Solutions has made significant investments in technology, marketing and internal staff and has begun building allied health and international divisions.
The company believes that when employees are treated well, financial success will follow. For Medical Solutions, treating employees well means putting them in the best position to succeed. With monthly outings held during business hours where employees can celebrate achievements, a break room which hosts foosball and pinball tournaments and a full-time concierge to handle personal affairs for the employees, Medical Solutions truly values its staff and their efforts. Fostering this empowering and appreciative environment has been instrumental to their growth and resulted in being named the winner of the 2008 Best Places to Work in Omaha among companies their size by The Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce.
In addition to traditional marketing tactics, the company's Marketing group has embraced cutting-edge strategies in an effort to create brand awareness for Medical Solutions as well as travel nursing. One such campaign is Restless Nurse Syndrome, which is a viral "mockumentary" series created and produced entirely by company employees to create awareness about travel nursing. The company's blog at TravelNursingBlogs.com is another marketing tool that provides a wealth of information about travel nursing as well as offering tips and advice for those already in the field. In addition to these initiatives, building an unparalleled customer experience is a major focus of this team.
Medical Solutions continues to devote significant resources to their information technology infrastructure. Continuous investment in technology will enable the company to be a leader in the travel healthcare staffing field and allow for future growth.
With the recent launch of their Allied Health Division in November 2007, the company provides a higher level of expertise in the allied health field. Coupled with a lesser publicized allied health professionals shortage, Medical Solutions is poised to fill most of their hospital's staffing needs in this area and continue their strong growth. In the first eight months since the launch of this new line of business, the Allied Health Division has grown to 11% of the company's overall sales. "Our mission is to be the largest provider of traveling healthcare staff for each of our clients. With nearly 900 hospital clients to cross-sell our Allied services, we anticipate the same kind of rapid growth we've achieved within the Nursing Division" said Anderson.
