When it comes to the traveling healthcare professionals you staff at your facility, quality is of huge importance! You should be able to trust your agency contacts as well as the Travelers they provide. Medical Solutions, the third-largest Travel Nurse staffing agency in the U.S., places a major emphasis on quality and that starts with the quality of the people we work with. Here’s a little bit about some of the great folks we recently honored as 2014 Traveler of the Year, Service That Inspires, and Recruiters of the Year Award winners.
Traveler of the Year
In order to recognize quality Travelers and award them for perfect hospital evaluations, we offer the Traveler of the Month program. This program recognizes a Traveler of the Month and a Rising Star (a newer Traveler) who received a perfect hospital eval and are chosen by our Clinical team from among the pool of perfect evals. At the close of each year, Medical Solutions awards one of them the Traveler of the Year award. This year, that Traveler was Jimmy C., an ICU RN currently on assignment in the Bay area.
“The best thing about Travel Nursing is that it’s really taught me how to adapt to nearly any situation,” says Jimmy. “Even though it’s been a short time, I feel like I’ve grown so much while learning how different hospitals and regions operate.”
Thanks so much for being an amazing representative of Medical Solutions, Jimmy!
Services That Inspires Award Winner
For 2014, Medical Solutions awarded this inaugural award, which is meant to honor a Traveler who embodies our mantra: “Service That Inspires.” The hard-working winner was Jenna H., a CST currently on assignment as a CVOR Tech in Kentucky.
A few of the facilities Jenna has worked at through Medical Solutions called her a hard worker, dedicated to her craft, extremely reliable, positive, and attentive to detail.
One facility even reported that Jenna is “superior in all surgical services, general, urological, gynecological, CVOR, vascular,” and added, “If we could clone candidate and fill all tech positions, we would.”
That’s a pretty glowing review! We are so proud to call Jenna a Medical Solutions Traveler. Thanks for everything you do, Jenna!
Recruiters of the Year
While our Clients get the privilege of working with our amazing team of Medical Solutions Client Managers, the Travelers have their Career Consultants as a point of contact. Client Managers and Career Consultants work together to ensure that each placement is a good mutual fit for the facility and Traveler.
Based on performance and Traveler nominations, the two Recruiter of the Year winners for 2014 were Stephanie Balkovec and Geri Koehler. We are so proud to have these two to help our Travelers build their careers. Plus, happy, productive Travelers start with a good recruiter! We know that the hard work our Career Consultants put forth results in smoother assignments and better patient care. Check out the videos below to hear some of the kind words Stephanie’s and Geri’s Travelers had to share about working with them.
Thanks and congrats to all of our 2014 winners! We appreciate your commitment to delivering (and supporting the delivery of) great patient care!
