Point of Contact
POINT OF CONTACT Reach out to nurses, techs and other surgical staff members who lost their jobs due to the pandemic.

Last year, Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare furloughed approximately 3,400 members of its workforce and specifically cited the pause in elective surgeries due to COVID-19 as the reason for the move. Of course, Tenet was hardly an outlier. Outpatient facilities across the country temporarily cut thousands of capable, willing workers in response to a once-in-a-generation pandemic. While many of these displaced nurses, techs and other administrative and clinical staff have gone back to their hospitals and surgery centers, plenty of providers have yet to return to work. That means you have a tremendous opportunity to snatch up some standout talent.
