Linda Julia is our Regional Vice President for the state of Florida. She started her career with HCA Healthcare at Plantation General Hospital, where she worked for 20 years first as a bedside nurse and then as a director.
“I’ve always been interested in healthcare,” Linda says about her decision to become a nurse. “When I was in high school, my mom took me and some friends to volunteer at the local VA hospital, and I just knew that I wanted to help people for a living."
The Baltimore native would go on to join the administrative team at new healthcare staffing agency — an HCA subsidiary known as All About Staffing. This company would later become HealthTrust Workforce Solutions, an industry leader in both healthcare recruitment and MSP offerings.
Nashville Director of Staffing Tina Jackson is our next corporate HealthTrust Hero! Tina was recognized for her unyielding commitment to operational excellence and for playing an integral role in HealthTrust's continued success.

Our next corporate HealthTrust Hero is Vice President of Interim Leadership Brandi Vines!
Brandi earned her HealthTrust Hero status through her tireless work with our recent Disaster Relief efforts to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. As HealthTrust Workforce Solutions is an affiliate of HCA, our Disaster Relief efforts included finding nurses and other medical professionals who were willing to travel to HCA facilities in the affected areas to provide relief to their staff.
“When the opportunity to lead the HCA volunteer initiative emerged, Brandi was ready to roll up her sleeves with her team,” says Kristi Stark, Regional Vice President for HealthTrust’s Central Region. “She built up a program to support the focus on HCA full-time employees who were willing to help support the regions most impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Irma.”
Travel recruiter Ashley Parker is our next corporate HealthTrust Hero! Ashley joined our team three years ago in our sourcing department and moved to our travel division less than a year later.
“I truly enjoy coming to work every day,” Ashley says with a smile. “I love getting to know new people and that no two days are the same.”
Please join us in congratulating Christina Hall, who was recently promoted to Assistant Vice President of Enterprise Operations!
In her new role, Christina will identify areas where the business may be operating inefficiently and implement solutions to help the company run more smoothly. This entails meeting with the leaders of each of our departments and field offices, gathering their feedback, and utilizing the talents of her skilled team of individuals to improve the company’s operating performance.
“My job is to make this company easier to do business with and for,” says Christina.
Matthew Rickmon, RN is our next clinical HealthTrust Hero! Matthew began his career with HealthTrust in the StaRN program as a learner and now works for HCA’s LewisGale Regional Health System in Virginia. Most recently, he earned the distinction of “Rookie RN of the Year” in HCA’s Southwest Virginia market.
“The skills practiced in StaRN were quite beneficial, many of which were hands-on experiences that were not encountered too often in school/clinicals,” Matthew says. “I believe StaRN is a major contributor to the rate that I have been able to pick up on skills, knowledge, and overall confidence in the real world of nursing.”
