Over the last few years, many hospitals, medical practices and assisted living facilities have struggled to find quality healthcare employees. Those in charge of hiring staff tend to utilize third party job boards, such as Indeed, Facebook and Google Jobs. However, time and costs are huge hurdles that hinder the search and entire hiring process, often leaving medical employers helpless.

Healthcare staffing agencies, also known as “contingent staffing agencies”, “supplemental staffing agencies”, “recruiting agencies” or “employment agencies”, are companies that help specifically help healthcare organizations find and hire temporary or permanent healthcare staff. Private and public sectors often partner with staffing agencies to find vetted, ready-to-work hires. The healthcare industry is no different. We’ll discuss some of the ways a medical staffing solution, like BrightStar Care Medical Staffing, can benefit your business.

Flexible Staff Scheduling

We provide healthcare businesses with a flexible workforce, allowing them to adjust their medical staffing levels to meet the needs of the business. This can be especially useful for businesses that experience fluctuations in demand or have seasonal needs. Northeast Ohio practices can have an influx of patients during the cold winter months. A medical staffing solution will help you place trusted individuals quickly and there are no misunderstandings, hurt feelings or worry when the demand ends.

Risk Management 

Our agency is eager to help businesses mitigate the risks associated with hiring and managing employees, such as the risk of employment disputes, workers comp claims, penalties due to low staff-to-patient ratios, or the risk of hiring unqualified candidates. At BrightStar Staffing, we have a rigorous hiring protocol such as:
  1. In-depth screening, licensure/certification verification, drug screening and background checks
  2. Trained and current in bloodborne pathogen, HIPAA and CPR guidelines
  3. Fully bonded and insured
  4. Required confidentiality agreements
  5. Minimum of one year of experience

Each employee is also required to demonstrate our core values of compassion, integrity, excellence, trustworthiness, accountability and reliability. Learn more about our medical staffing quality standards.

Hiring Cost Savings

By utilizing our supplemental healthcare staffing services businesses save money. We take on the costs and responsibilities associated with recruiting, hiring, onboarding, and managing employees, such as payroll, benefits, unemployment insurance, workers comp claims, etc. By taking on the overhead costs, businesses can focus on their core operations and save resources. 


Save Recruiting Time

Allow our medical staffing agency to take on the tasks of recruiting, screening and onboarding employees. This gives you and your staff time to attend to your patients and residents. According to LinkedIn, the average hiring time is three to six weeks, which could be time better spent on your business. We bring qualified, pre-screened medical professionals to you, when you need them, within 1-14 days. Find out more about the healthcare positions we staff.

Medical Staffing Expertise 

Our team possesses a deep pool of talent and expertise throughout the healthcare ecosystem. Therefore, businesses may access the right talent for their needs and ensure that they have the skills and expertise required to succeed. Healthcare organizations often turn to staffing agencies to fill specialty positions, such as nursing leadership roles or positions requiring advanced degrees or certifications. Medical staffing agencies can help organizations find qualified candidates with the specialized skills and experience needed for these positions.

Access to a Wider Pool of Candidates

BrightStar Care helps businesses access a wider pool of clients throughout the Cleveland area. This can increase the chances of finding the right fit for you and your organization while saving time and resources in the hiring process. In addition to temporary staffing needs, healthcare organizations can also tune to BrightStar Staffing to meet permanent staffing needs. We  can help organizations find qualified candidates to fill open positions on a permanent basis.

In conclusion, BrightStar Care’s supplemental staffing will provide your business with a number of benefits ranging from savings to efficiency. More importantly, we lower your risk exposure to employment liability, sanctions and fines due to low staff-to-patient ratios. By partnering with us, your business may access the talent needed to succeed while saving time and resources in the hiring process.
