Happy National Healthcare Recruiter Recognition Day! In 1991, Congress declared the first Tuesday in June to be National Healthcare Recruiter Recognition Day — celebrated on Tuesday, June 4th this year.
HealthTrust Workforce Solutions recognizes that our healthcare recruiters work tirelessly to find the best clinicians and interim leaders for healthcare facilities across the nation. Without their help, HWS would not have been able to put 25,000 clinicians to work!
This Military Appreciation Month, we would like to thank all of the active, reserve, and veteran members of the armed forces who serve our country. This Memorial Day, we would also like to take a moment to remember the brave men and women who lost their lives in service to our country.

One of the most prominent ways that HealthTrust Workforce Solutions recognizes nurses who exhibit the utmost skill and compassion to their patients is through the presentation of DAISY Awards. The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses is recognized as a symbol of nursing excellence in 22 countries and in all 50 states.
The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 in memory of J. Patrick Barnes after he passed away from complications of an auto-immune disease. His family sought to publicly recognize the nurses who provided Patrick with the highest quality of care during his eight weeks of hospitalization. Thus, the DAISY Award was born.
