THMED Announces Pledge To Help End The Physician And Nursing Shortage

Dallas, TX /PRNewswire/ - The healthcare staffing and consulting firm, THMED, LLC, or Transcend Health and Medical, pledged to help end the lingering physician and nursing shortage.

According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, the United States expects to face a shortage of physicians and nurses over the next decade. THMED chooses to proactively help solve the issue with its mission-driven pledge to hire people who care and verify candidates with its unique technology and recruitment process. THMED also adds to the cause with its rollover guarantee. This ensures that hospitals are not penalized for changes in the market or hiring process and that all funds are exclusively spent on hiring medical professionals.

President of THMED, Arthur Cooper says, "It's really simple, and it all starts in house. THMED's mission statement is 'Centered on Finding People Who Care.' We focus on solely hiring people internally who care about the shortage in the healthcare industry and those who want to help ease the burden of hospitals, patients, and communities. Without fully staffed hospitals everyone loses."

THMED emphasizes the importance of getting to know each client and each candidate to ensure the most successful matches are made. The company uses analytics from its unique technology PACER, Practice And Community Evaluation Report, to assist recruiters with understanding candidates' true interest in positions. It's an interactive, web-based tool to help candidates fully understand the medical facility and the surrounding community. The technology leads to better employment matches, while saving hospitals time and money from candidate insight and lower interview costs.

"By understanding a candidate's true interest, we are able to make lasting placements. Lasting placements lead to less turnover in hospitals, better patient care, and increased stability in the communities," said Sepi McDonnell, Chief Information Officer.

Rebecca Fisher, Director of Recruiting says, "The decisions I make have a huge impact on so many lives. We all have family out there who see these medical providers, and I want to have a say in who provides care to the people I love."

In the last two years alone, the staffing firm, has more than doubled its recruiting staff to help fill the current vacant positions in hospitals and medical facilities nationwide. THMED plans to be a leader on the journey to end the physician and nursing shortage and will continue to initiate new ways to overcome the challenges ahead. THMED is a complete healthcare staffing solution which includes the following divisions: Fidelis Partners, THMED Executive Search, Medestar and Allied Staffing Network. Its combined services include permanent physician placement, locum tenens staffing, nurse and allied permanent placement, allied travelers, executive and academic placement, and other consulting services.
