The U.S. economy created 164,000 new jobs in July and the unemployment rate remained unchanged at 3.7% nationally. The healthcare sector added 30,400 jobs, with nearly all job creation occurring within ambulatory care settings.
Our Account Managers, Division Vice Presidents, Regional Vice Presidents, Clinical Operations team and more gathered at our Sunrise corporate office last week for training and discussion on how we can build stronger partnerships with the healthcare facilities we serve. In addition, the groups engaged in team building activities and social mixers to further strengthen their partnerships with each other. The event was facilitated by our Professional Development Group.

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!
Our Nashville office hosts a monthly contest for our local staffing specialists called Staffing Star!

Recruiters at our South Florida corporate headquarters recently received comprehensive recruitment training!

Our StaRN program is hiring! If you’re a registered nurse and would like to inspire the next generation of nurses in Richmond, Salt Lake City, or Las Vegas, consider becoming a StaRN instructor. No prior teaching experience is necessary!
StaRN – short for Specialty Training Apprenticeship for Registered Nurses – is designed to bridge the skills gap between new graduates and experienced nurses through a combination of classroom and hands-on specialty training. Each cohort lasts 10 to 22 weeks depending on specialty, during which StaRN instructors act as mentors, educators, and preceptors to newly-licensed registered nurses.
