3 Reasons Why Size Matters When Choosing a Healthcare Staffing Company

Three is a magic number here at CompHealth. Earlier this year, as a division of CHG Healthcare Services, CompHealth made the Top 3 on FORTUNE's list of 100 Best Companies to Work For in America. Now we're proud to announce that CHG also ranks in the top three largest U.S. healthcare staffing firms, according to a recent report by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA). SIA groups healthcare staffing companies into four sub-segments: per diem nurse, travel nurse, allied health, and locum tenens. CHG took second-largest overall, as well as fifth in travel nurse, ninth in allied health, and first in locum tenens staffing. This last one is very meaningful to us, because CompHealth is not only the largest CHG division, but our locum tenens division is also a major player in the space. Started in 1979 as the first locum tenens staffing firm to provide physician coverage in areas throughout the western states, CompHealth continues to be one of the nation's largest and best healthcare staffing organizations. All bragging aside, our depth and breadth of services present certain advantages to job seekers and staffing buyers alike. Here are three reasons why size really does matter when choosing a healthcare staffing company.
  1. More people. Hundreds of people work at CompHealth, and many of them have been with us for decades (It's our return on investment for being a best company to work for). As a result, we have industry experts with rich experience in addressing challenges of every size and variety. The quality and quantity of our people enables us to form specialty-specific teams that understand current market conditions, industry trends, compensation, and today's healthcare landscape. Our specialized teams have worked with more physicians and healthcare facilities than anyone in the industry.
  2. More resources. CompHealth takes pride in being not only a staffing agency, but also a trusted partner. This means we don't just put you to work or staff your facility and then wish you well. We have dedicated support teams to help you with things like credentialing, licensing, risk management, and even marketing. These are services that you just don't get with smaller agencies. When partnering with CompHealth, you receive dedicated support from your representative and other behind-the-scenes staff members throughout your assignment and long after.
  3. More opportunities. The bigger we get, the more you benefit. As a staffing buyer, you enjoy an extensive database with thousands of candidates in more than 70 physician specialties, as well as marketing services to ensure maximum visibility of open positions. As a job seeker, you get access to our nationwide network of clients and daily updated job opportunities, many of which are never posted publicly.
Being recognized as the largest locum tenens staffing firm is no small feat. It is an accomplishment that is years in the making -- 34, to be exact. And with longevity comes wisdom; there isn't a career or staffing challenge that we can't help you solve. Just try us.
