All Star’s Signature “Red Carpet” Service Can Be the Best Gift for Your Holiday and Winter Staffing Needs
It’s amazing how quickly the signs of winter and the upcoming holiday season start popping up. First, there’s Halloween, then Thanksgiving, and talk of end-of-year vacations gains momentum. Before you know it, winter has arrived in full force, and with it, upticks in seasonal illnesses. For administrators and managers at healthcare facilities and private practices, it is also the time of year to readdress staffing needs.
All Star Healthcare Solutions can help your facility approach this busy time of year from a proactive and empowered stance.
Respond to occasional needs
Even if your facility doesn’t engage locum tenens physicians, NPs, PAs, or CRNAs throughout the year, seasonal upticks in patient census combined with time-off requests suddenly create the need for supplemental staff. Our consultants (also referred to as recruiters) are ready to initiate the process of identifying potential candidates as soon as you are.
Track historical staffing trends
Because we take a consultative approach toward building relationships with healthcare organizations, All Star recruiters familiarize themselves with a facility’s unique staffing patterns. Reviewing past years’ locum tenens usage can serve as a starting point for this year’s holiday vacation planning as well as winter staffing trends.
Filling expanded needs
While past experiences form a logical launching pad, we know circumstances change year over year. Your staffing demands may shift from unit to unit, specialty to specialty. All Star works with physicians and advanced practice providers in all fields, so we’re ready to meet your needs. What’s more, our full-service offerings allow our Direct Hire Division to assist with your recruiting efforts in coordination with our Locums Division filling your temporary positions.
Manage calendars months in advance
Of course, All Star works with facilities to respond to all kinds of personnel needs, across the specialty spectrum and for immediate placement when necessary. Consultants also can partner with administrators and managers to book supplemental clinicians in advance. This can be very beneficial as the demand for locum tenens professionals grows greater closer to the holidays and into the cold and flu season. Working in advance allows room to finalize credentialing and other processes to ready providers and avoid start-date delays.
Represent your facility to potential providers
Each locum tenens assignment is an opportunity for All Star recruiters to become more informed about your facility and its specific needs. Additionally, exit interviews with clinicians provide personal insight. All of that knowledge is used to match physicians and advanced practice providers for your future locum tenens jobs.
The sooner you initiate staffing strategies for end-of-year holidays and a busy winter, including locum tenens services, the more empowered you will be to give staff the gift of time off while assuring patients continue to receive the quality care they deserve.
