FocusOne Solutions partnered with a large Pennsylvania hospital to facilitate a substantial and urgent hiring effort for contract staff. With the closing of a competitor hospital within the same community and the intensity of flu seasons in recent years, the hospital was slated to open a new unit in response to the increase in volume.
The facility was in need of 37 contract RNs, 10 of which required a short hiring turnaround of three weeks in order to open the unit. This initial hiring phase coincided with the Holiday season, an especially challenging period for recruitment.
The hospital had begun utilizing contract staff for the first time in over 10 years and while their contract staffing efforts were sustainable, sourcing through multiple agencies was becoming cumbersome and difficult to manage. Once the HR staff received a request for nearly double their typical number of contract staff, they knew the volume would be more than they were prepared to handle.
The director of HR was familiar with FocusOne and had a positive working relationship with FocusOne’s sister company Aureus Medical Group, which had provided contract staff in the past.
Factors that led to the hospital engaging FocusOne were its reputation and service offerings, including software and compliance management.
