In March 2020, the WCS Healthcare Partners team, responded to the COVID-19 Crisis by partnering with clients to respond to an immediate increase in staffing needs and critical vacancies.
“Unfortunately, March brought forward an unpredictable and universal pandemic. Our team embraced the opportunity to support our valued health system partnerships with critical needs located in it’s epicenter. The team rallied with their recruitment of experienced, local and out-of -state high acuity trained registered nurses, and allied health professionals. The teams diverse network included ICU, Dialysis, Med/Surge, Emergency Room RN’s, with allied healthcare professionals working in Pharmacy, Radiology, Respiratory and Rehabilitation Therapy. These healthcare professionals remain on the front lines, helping combat, contain, and conquer COVID-19 at it’s peak,” Matthew Jordan, Managing Director of Staffing Services said.
In early May of 2020, the census at our partner hospitals leveled off and in many cases began to rapidly decline as the containment efforts started to work. The WCS team began to shift gears towards re-opening strategies and moving towards a more proactive approach.
“WCS Health is excited to help their clients return to work safely. This is a critical time in the world and its our job at WCS Healthcare to provide our clients the knowledge and the staff to get back to their offices and back to work. We have the ability to offer our clients a unique plan for their specific needs,” said by our Vice President of Staffing Services, Ruth Portnoy.
WCS Healthcare Partners is providing an array of re-opening services and strategies to our corporate partners. Services will include on-site temperature taking, data reporting, symptomatic-based testing, antibody testing all customized to the client’s needs. “The majority of our corporate clients want to bring their workforce back in 2020. They have never had to think about corporate wellness programs or on-site health teams, ” Barbara Tamberlane, Founder and Managing Partner said. “Our focus is to make sure our clients can re-open with a minimal amount of structural change. We are combining this with a cost effective and comprehensive plan possible which minimizes exposure in the work place, but also make employees feel safe returning to work.”
