We Target Facility Needs
Health Staffing International was incorporated in 1997 initially to target needs in the British Columbia home support and long-term care field. In 2000 the company launched its Nurse staffing initiative in the Greater Vancouver region.
The Nurse staffing division has now grown to encompass the widest range of nursing specialties in the sector. We are an official supplier of human resource services to the provincial government through the Health Regions. Our client base includes acute hospitals, multi-level care facilities, extended care units, private hospitals, home support agencies, alcohol and drug rehabilitation centres, group homes, mental health boarding homes, special care units, and seniors centres.
Health Staffing International’s recruitment division is now the fastest growing segment of the company. In concert with this growth, we have found it necessary to develop an education and mentoring capacity to assist new immigrant nurses in adjusting to the demands, requirements, and procedures of the BC health care system.
We provide Nurse instructors to local colleges to lead groups of students in their practicum placements. We have been called upon to arrange short term vacation coverage for Nurse Managers and Directors of Care. Our Management team has also assisted facilities in altering their staffing patterns.
Health Staffing is here to minimize the stress your company faces daily. Utilizing our supplemental services will assist in preventing staffing shortages, whether short-term or long-term, while saving you time and energy.
