Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Selects Supplemental Health Care For RPO Solution

Firm Chosen to Help Region’s Award Winning Pediatric Hospital Expand Services

PARK CITY, Utah – July 17, 2014 – Supplemental Health Care announced today that Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood, Fla., has selected it to meet hospital expansion healthcare staffing needs through its industry-leading and innovative Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) services.  

Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital provides treatment to children with medical problems ranging from asthma to cancer and blood disorders to orthopedics and pulmonary conditions. 

The highly respected facility opened in 1992 with 90 physicians and patient admissions around 200.  It now boasts more than 1650 world-class pediatricians, pediatric specialists, specialty-trained nurses and ancillary support staff that accommodates more than 8,000 admissions and observation discharges and more than 65,000 emergency visits.

“With our newly completed expansion, it was essential we find a partner who would help us recruit and hire healthcare professionals who share our philosophy – promoting patient- and family-centered care,” said Chantal Leconte, Administrator and CEO Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital and Pediatric Services for Memorial Healthcare System.  

Supplemental Health Care will provide Pediatric Intensive Care Unit nurses and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit specialists for the hospital.  The company will collaborate with Joe DiMaggio’s HR team in providing essential recruiting services, including employer branding, sourcing, screening, interview coordination, assessment, references, and credential verification. 

“We are excited to have been chosen by Joe DiMaggio and Memorial Healthcare System as their exclusive provider of RPO services,” said Janet Elkin, President and CEO of Supplemental Health Care.  “Our philosophy in recruiting, hiring and retaining healthcare professionals who are patient and community centered dovetails perfectly with their desire to deliver quality healthcare services.” 

As the fastest-growing hiring strategy in the healthcare industry, RPO is an efficient and cost-effective staffing solution, providing top-quality candidates for full-time employment.  Supplemental Health Care’s RPO program provides benefits in three key areas:

  • Improving hiring performance by reducing open positions and time-to-fill, while decreasing cost-per-hire;
  • Reducing costs from staff overtime, contingent labor and third-party recruiters; and
  • Increasing revenue by focusing on priority positions that have direct impact on hospital performance and productivity.

Supplemental Health Care was recently presented the Leadership 500 Award by HR.com’s Leadership Excellence magazine for its RPO services.  It is the nation’s only healthcare staffing company that is quality-certified by The Studer Group, the preeminent healthcare coaching organization and has received the Gold Seal of Approval by the Joint Commission for healthcare staffing services.
