Medifield Staffing Changes the Face of Healthcare Staffing

New Staffing Organization Specializing in Temporary Healthcare Staff Placements Delivers More Insight Than Traditional Staffing Firms

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2011) - Medifield Staffing Inc. has officially opened for business. The privately owned business specializes in the placement of temporary, or "locum tenens," positions for physicians, nurses and other healthcare staff in high demand health care facilities and care centers across the U.S. One of the company's unique points of difference from larger, traditional healthcare recruitment and staffing firms is that it is run by ex-traveling physicians, rather than administrative or HR personnel.

"Only an insider knows what it's like to function as a temporary, or locum tenens healthcare professional; we're a growing group of highly skilled professionals being utilized to support the rising need of healthcare shortages across the country," commented Dr. Neelam Patel, CEO of Medifield Staffing. "We have unique, first-hand knowledge regarding how to locate and place the right healthcare professionals in the right positions. We utilize our global resources and affiliate relationships to deliver outstanding candidates to the healthcare facilities most in need of their specialized skill sets and competencies."

The company prides itself on providing "big staffing agency" services at cost effective rates, and maximizing the pipeline for global healthcare candidates. "I'm an Indian American," Dr. Patel went on to say, "with affiliate relationships with medical organizations both in the U.S. and abroad. Whether we need to utilize these affiliate relationships, assist foreign healthcare professionals in the U.S. with their J1/H1 work visas, or recruit U.S. graduates entering the workforce, we will outperform the competition when it comes to increasing the supply of qualified healthcare candidates."
