As COVID-19 continues to spread across our communities, we know its impacts are affecting every one of us – in our feelings of economic stability, in how we’re taking precautions in our personal healthcare, as well as in how we protect our families.
At Protouch Staffing, we take a personal, people-first approach. While the world is changing, we are adapting and responding to help healthcare professionals and medical facilities emerge stronger. We’re proud of our role to serve as a trusted resource to our partners and members of our healthcare community during these trying times.
Because Protouch Staffing has been a healthcare talent acquisition resource for more than 30 years, I am fortunate to know, partner with, and work alongside many brave healthcare professionals. These selfless essential workers are committed to the nation’s health and safety, all the while risking their own. When I see stories of so many working unprecedented hours, providing compassionate care to COVID patients separated from their families, I find myself asking, how does one express adequate gratitude for this kind of sacrifice?
If I’m being honest, the task seems humbling - and impossible. There simply aren’t words to articulate my appreciation for those working tirelessly to protect our communities. Thank you to all of you – for treating our neighbors, colleagues and family members as your own.
During the coronavirus outbreak, Protouch Staffing has quickly scaled up its response to support high volume needs for hospitals across the country. Our expert team is working diligently to serve all clients by staffing essential clinical and non-clinical healthcare staff. We are also working with our clients to provide personal, case-by-case guidance, based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, to minimize the risk of exposure.
Responding to our clients' increasingly diversified needs remains a key area of focus for us. Through our long-standing relationships and newly developed engagements, our staffing team continues to maintain an extensive pool of top-notch healthcare candidates. Regardless of the location, our proactive approach lends well to filling urgent gaps with qualified and vetted candidates.
Despite these challenging times, our expert team continues to provide job seekers with strong opportunities in leading hospital networks.
We understand our candidates are not only in high demand, but often also seeking immediate employment. With that in mind, our team is working around the clock to provide seamless, virtual interviews, as well as remote onboarding and training.
We can’t say it enough - you are more than doctors, nurses, first responders and healthcare personnel. In reality, you are our heroes in masks, scrubs, and face shields! Thank you again for your desire to serve others and to make an immeasurable impact in this world – today and every day.
While we send thanks, we must also show our appreciation with action. I am urging all of us to support our frontline healthcare warriors by continuing to take all precautionary measures to flatten the curve and defeat this deadly pandemic. We stand together (but six feet apart!) - and together, we’ll get through this unprecedented time.
