Our Dallas leadership team hosted a breakfast in appreciation of their local staff members! The leaders prepared and served a breakfast of pancakes, eggs, bacon, and more.
"The leadership team in Dallas enjoys having a moment to give back to our teams in a fun way," says Regional Vice President Kristi Stark, whose team earned Office of the Quarter for Q1. "Our office leaders come together to provide a breakfast menu that everyone can enjoy and we do all the cooking to show them how much we appreciate them. Our teams work hard each and every day, and this is just a small way we can show our appreciation for their hard work."
HealthTrust Workforce Solutions wishes all of our clinical and corporate team members a happy Customer Service Week! Serving our customers - whether they are healthcare professionals, staffing partners, facility clients or patients - is at the heart of what we do.

The HealthTrust Workforce Solutions Leadership Development Program is designed to cultivate the continuous growth and professional development of our team members through formal mentorship, leadership exercises, presentation skills development and more. Each year, the organization selects a new group of about 20 leaders to complete the Leadership Development Program.
“My biggest takeaway from the program was the importance of behavioral growth,” says Ashlee Joselin, Director of Enterprise Operations, who completed the program in 2019. “You can be a subject matter expert in your field, but if you don’t possess the leadership skills and capabilities to drive your team toward success, you won’t make it very far.”
HealthTrust Workforce Solutions President & CEO Brendan Courtney has been named to Florida Trend’s Florida 500 for the second consecutive year! This list includes the 500 most influential business leaders in the state within their professions or their communities.

HWS has thrived within the Florida business climate and we continue to expand our physical footprint. We have grown to become one of the top 20 largest employers in Broward County, providing economic opportunities for more people in more ways — including the nearly 1,000 corporate employees and the thousands more clinicians employed at healthcare facilities across our state."
