Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) March 29, 2012 Leading allied healthcare staffing agency, Travel Force Staffing, has been awarded The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for 2012. As an affiliate of American Traveler Staffing Professionals, Travel Force Staffing has been continuously certified by The Joint Commission since 2005 and has once again earned the valued Gold Seal of Approval. Addressing the nation’s allied healthcare shortage by providing healthcare employers with travel and permanent therapy job candidates, Travel Force focuses on recruiting skilled candidates to fulfill Physical therapy jobs and occupational therapy jobs.
“Receiving certification time and time again is a testament to our commitment to healthcare employers and patients alike,” said Mary Kay Hull, Vice President of Recruitment of Travel Force Staffing. “Our attention to detail from application to placement ensures that we staff facilities nationwide with top quality candidates who practice with a high level of integrity and professionalism. We’ve been certified since 2005 and continue to uphold the standards of this esteemed organization.”
With physical therapist shortages expected to increase nationwide through 2030, the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation reports the southern and western U.S. will be hit hardest – areas of the country known for record numbers of retiring Baby Boomers. The continued shortage of qualified local allied healthcare professionals will make it increasingly difficult for healthcare employers of all types in these areas to source, onboard and retain qualified therapy jobs candidates in a timely manner. A problem Hull said her firm is strategically positioned to solve.
“Our national footprint and leading-edge technologies enable us to fill vacancies fast, even for hard-to-find travel and permanent therapy jobs candidates in remote parts of the country,” Hull said. “In line with The Joint Commission, our goal at Travel Force is to continuously improve health care processes. To that end, we make it easy for clients to recruit therapists quickly and to enable a high level of patient care. ”
Travel Force Staffing is one of 19,000 health care organizations in the U.S. certified by The Joint Commission. To achieve certification, healthcare staffing agencies undergo an in-depth review of qualifications and competency of staff, placement procedures and staff performance benchmarks. Seven years in a row, Travel Force excelled in areas of customer service and support, communications and accountability.
“As The Joint Commission fosters excellence in healthcare, Travel Force nurtures a proactive staffing environment. We hold candidates to high standards and are committed to meeting the specific needs of healthcare employers of all types,” Hull said.
