The Client’s Challenge:
The client was set to open a new off-campus emergency room clinic but did not have the nurses to support it. After reaching out to their third-party staffing company (specializing in emergency department placements), they still came up short, and the nurses who had received offers did not have emergency room experience. The client needed 10 more nurses to staff the ER, and time was running out before the clinic’s opening date.
How SimpliFi Approached the Challenge:
Though only given a few days notice, SimpliFi began working with its staffing partners right away. Strategy calls were coordinated to share the adjusted timeline, expedite the placement process, and identify emergency room nurses to meet the requirements of this clinic.
“The client needed 10 more nurses to staff the ER, and time was running out before the clinic’s opening date.”
How SimpliFi Solved the Problem:
SimpliFi’s client relationship team worked diligently with their staffing partners and qualified eight nurses with the necessary emergency room experience and appropriate state licenses. The average time to identify, license, and start an agency nurse in this state is usually over 45 days, and SimpliFi was able to start all eight in less than a week.
Before reaching out to SimpliFi, the client thought the clinic’s opening would be delayed by several months. However, they opened within two weeks with SimpliFi’s involvement, replacing costly delays with a revenue producing entity.
