Is there a nurse or radiology tech in the house? Medical Staffing Network steps in when health care providers need workers. The company places temporary nurses and other medical support staff at health care facilities such as hospitals and nursing homes. Options include per diem staffing (assignments lasting less than two weeks), travel staffing (temporary assignments that require relocation), and allied health assignments (staffing for specialized radiology or other clinical lab technicians). It also offers OneSource, a vendor management service for financial and staff utilization rate tracking. Medical Staffing Network owns branch offices throughout the US and serves more than 7,000 health care facilities.
In 2012 the company sold its HomeCare division to Epic Health Services. It made the divestiture as part of its strategic plan to focus on its core competencies, including providing services to acute and non-acute healthcare organizations.
Previously, Medical Staffing was in bankruptcy for less than three months in 2010. Like most companies within its industry, Medical Staffing was stung by belt-tightening at hospitals as well as high unemployment rates, which can force potential patients without insurance to forgo medical procedures. As a result, there was a lingering reduced demand for the company's services. Medical Staffing reported more than $148 million in losses during the recession and filed for bankruptcy in order to facilitate a more long-term restructuring. Upon its exit from bankruptcy, it was bought by secured lenders for $84 million. – less
