The healthcare staffing industry is a vital part of the healthcare delivery system in America, a system that has been tested by chronic worker shortages and a pandemic. Increasingly, organizations and healthcare professionals are looking for a modern, flexible, and technologically enabled staffing model. Health Carousel, one of the nation’s fastest growing and most respected providers of healthcare staffing and workforce solutions, has combined the best in digital technology with the traditional models of staffing to create a more satisfying, flexible and cost-effective experience for healthcare facilities and healthcare providers around the country.
Trust is the foundation of building incredible companies. In the healthcare industry, trust helps create robust connections that mutually elevate all those involved. Over the last few years, those most trusted have been steadfast pillars of support at a time of constant disruption and uncertainty. There can be no doubt that Health Carousel is a business built on a platform of trust – alongside an uncompromising drive to tackle the biggest challenges facing American healthcare.
The scarcity of qualified health personnel, including nurses +and physicians has been one of the primary concerns in the U.S. healthcare system since the 1970s. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, by the year 2024, there will be a need for more than 1 million nurses in the U.S. In addition, one-third of practicing US physicians are over 60 and more likely to retire over the next decade. As large numbers of aging healthcare providers head into retirement, it could create a drastic knowledge gap and a loss of experienced workers, further hindering the country’s ability to educate and train providers entering the field. In addition to staffing shortages, healthcare facilities also struggle with optimizing the usage of a wide range of staffing solutions to maximize patient care and match expected patient census seasonally and during significant outbreaks.
Healthcare facilities were challenged to respond with recruitment and staffing solutions that meet the needs of their patients and facilities even before the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic created a surge in cases and patient care demands that far surpassed the capacity of the healthcare system, both in terms of available facilities, and healthcare providers.
Dedicated to addressing such short-term and long-term workforce challenges in the healthcare industry, Health Carousel offers the finest healthcare talent and workforce solutions across a variety of healthcare occupations, including physicians, registered nurses, allied health, and advanced practice professionals. By delivering high-quality healthcare staff in real time as needs arise, it enables healthcare organizations to optimize their workforce, improve patient care, and reduce the cost of healthcare.
