Important Update for Healthcare Providers Regarding Paper Paychecks

We understand that as a healthcare provider, your instinct is to help those with the greatest need at any given moment. Especially now, when it seems the call for help is more widespread than ever before. That being said, we hope you recognize that every single healthcare provider role is of vital importance to the hospitals and healthcare facilities we serve during this worldwide crisis. An unexpected vacancy of any kind will only add to the unprecedented pressure these facilities face in light of current and anticipated overwhelming demand. If you wish to be considered for a crisis/COVID-19 assignment, please reach out to your recruiter and she or he will work with you to secure one of these assignments once your current contract is completed.

As hospitals assess how to best utilize their resources to address the ongoing coronavirus crisis, you may be redirected from your current assignment to elsewhere in the hospital. This usually happens when a facility temporarily shuts down various clinical settings because of social distancing requirements. Click here for more information.

This unprecedented healthcare crisis has created an “all-hands-on-deck” situation for many hospitals. As a front-line healthcare provider, you may be asked to contribute in ways you hadn’t anticipated, yet still within the scope of your practice abilities. Click here to read more.
