Health Providers Choice: Award-Winning Staffing

Written by Rose Torrento on Wednesday, August 30, 2017 Posted in Industry News


You know you’re doing something right when you’re recognized by a publication such as Forbes for being a top professional recruiting firm. Or when you’re awarded the top spot on the Highway Hypodermics “Top Ten Travel Companies” list two years in a row: 2016 and 2017. The experts at Health Providers Choice (HPC) are doing it right, and HPC is a key partner for traveling health care professionals looking for well-suited work assignments.

Rewarding excellence

  • Forbes
    Although HPC’s reputation in the traveling health care industry stands for itself, the accolades it has received reinforce that reputation. Forbes teamed up with analytics firm Statista to determine America’s best recruiting companies through extensive surveys of recruiters, employees, and human resources managers. Making Forbes’ list of best overall professional recruiting firms — not just health care recruiters — is a huge accomplishment for HPC and speaks to the company’s thorough screening processes and commitment to matching candidates’ qualifications to a clients’ requirements for relevant job openings.
  • Highway Hypodermics
    Highway Hypodermics is a website that provides current, quality information for travel nurses around the globe. It provides education about how to be a quality travel nurse as well as how to be a traveling health care company employee with integrity. It was created by Epstein LaRue, herself a traveling nurse, who has also written several books about the travelling health care industry. Since 2004, it has been rating travel nurse companies according to the benefits that they provide nurses. HPC has topped that list for the last 2 years. That honor is especially important as it is based on evaluations of travel companies by actual traveling nurses and shows the high regard they have for HPC staffing services.
  • Best of Staffing
    Less than 2% of all staffing companies in the United States and Canada earned this year’s Best of Staffing award — but HPC won in two categories. HPC was selected as a Best of Staffing Client Satisfaction and Talent Satisfaction award winner for service excellence. Award winners offer remarkable quality and are rated among the elite in the industry by the job seekers and clients they work with for exceeding expectations.

Recognizing high standards

The recent awards are not the only recognition of high HPC standards of service to those in the travel nurse community. In 2005, HPC was given the Gold Seal of Approval from The Joint Commission, a non-profit organization that accredits and certifies health care organizations. To receive the certification seal, a staffing agency must display an ability to provide “competent staffing services and evaluations of performance, continued education and training, placement criteria and other areas meet or over exceed the standards within leadership, human resource management, performance measurement, and improvement and information management.”

In addition, HPC is accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB), which means it has met or exceeded the BBB Code of Business Practices, which requires building trust, honest advertising, keeping promises, and exemplifying integrity. HPC is also affiliated with the National Association of Travel Health care organizations (NATHO), the American Staffing Agency (ASA), the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), American Society for Health Care Human Resources Administration (ASHHRA), and INAVERO.

But it’s not the awards and affiliations that make HPC a great company. It’s the HPC recruitment team members who facilitate every step of the recruiting process and maintain close relationships with the travel nurses during and after assignments. It’s also the excellent health care candidates who trust us to provide quality openings and assignments and the great organization leaders who know we will provide them with highly skilled and compassionate caregivers.
