Clinical/Executive Staffing

Most health centers are seldom fortunate enough to find all the management and front-line staffing they need in their own back yards. That is why NACHC has enlisted the help of several firms to help members with:

  • Permanent clinical staffing
  • Temporary clinical staffing
  • Executive search

PERMANENT CLINICAL STAFFING:

NACHC continually searches the market for companies that assist health centers attract qualified clinicians. NACHC has established relationships with one of the nation’s largest permanent clinical staffing firms, Merritt Hawkins.

Merritt Hawkins is a nationwide search firm specializing in physician and dental recruiting services on a permanent basis for NACHC members.

NACHC has negotiated the following services for its members:

Preferred pricing for NACHC members
Cost-free, on-site consultation

TEMPORARY CLINICAL STAFFING:

The need for health care continues, even when doctors and nurses leave to pursue other opportunities. To continue delivering care, health centers often need to enlist temporary help.

Thanks to a relationship negotiated by the NACHC, members can address their clinical staffing needs through the services of AMN Healthcare, and AMN’s subsidiary, Staff Care.

Staff Care, which finds temporary placements for more than 7,500 physicians each year, provides NACHC members with temporary physician staffing.

AMN Healthcare provides temporary nurse staffing, on a contingent basis.

The relationship with NACHC lets AMN Healthcare and Staff Care offer their services at preferred prices. Fees are not due until the temporary clinician begins billable work.
