Why Use a Medical Staffing Firm?

Finding Top Talent in the Medical Industry

Jul 7, 2020

The healthcare sector is in constant need of skilled medical professionals. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in the medical industry is projected to grow 12 percent from 2018 to 2028. This growth will continue to increase, especially in nursing, due to the emphasis on preventative care, growing rates of chronic conditions, and demand for healthcare services from the baby-boom population. To help facilities find the most talented applicants to fill these specialized positions, many providers contract with professional recruitment firms, like Lofton Medical Services.



An appropriate screening process results in acquiring top-notch talent for your medical facility. A firm with experience in hiring in the medical profession, like Lofton Medical Services, will look far beyond a candidate’s resume; they have resources that enable them to probe deep into work histories.   

When you work with a medical staffing firm, you eliminate the time-consuming process of weeding through hundreds of resumes. Your recruiter will only present those candidates who have gone through a rigorous screening and evaluation process hand-picked to meet your needs. The only thing you need to do is make the final selection.



Medical recruiting experts are up-to-date on the latest hiring trends and market rates. They can suggest ways in which your company can gain a competitive advantage and help you attract and retain top talent for your medical facility. Furthermore, your professional recruiter will provide the latest legal guidelines and/or certifications of which you should be aware.



Although you will pay fees for this service, you will realize savings by not having to hire and rehire for the same position. Also, you will eliminate the cost of lost revenue that results from any unfilled positions. Time is another cost associated with finding, screening, interviewing and hiring staff. 



Few medical staffing firms have a dedicated training team to keep your staff within guidelines.  At Lofton Medical Services, we've clearly established ourselves as a CPR training leader. Our Training Division has been authorized as an official American Heart Association (AHA) Training Center - providing credentialed Emergency Cardiovascular Care courses.  

From healthcare providers who need recertification, to business owners who want their employees trained, to individuals who want to learn how to save a life – Lofton Medical has the resources and flexibility to meet your specific training needs, including BLS, ACLS, PALS, as well as, HeartSaver CPR/AED training. Classes consist of online training, combined with a skills test administered by one of our AHA instructors.
