Seamless 24/7 coverage for our employees and clients

In 1991, Favorite Healthcare Staffing established the National Service Center to ensure customer support is available 24/7/365 for our valued clients and employees.

40 years of proven success as a leader in the healthcare staffing industry

As our agency grew, it was a natural step for us to offer our healthcare professionals and clients more opportunities and solutions to better serve them and our communities. 

Travel Nursing

In 1991, Favorite Healthcare Staffing began to help travel nurses find the perfect travel nursing jobs across the country. Traveling with Favorite gives travel nurses the chance to explore new environments and healthcare facilities while developing and learning new skills. We offer unique travel nursing jobs in some of the most sought-after destinations in the U.S.

Allied Health and Non-Clinical

2006 brought new and exciting changes when Favorite opened our allied health and non-clinical division. Allied health professionals are vital to keeping the healthcare industry running efficiently, and they provide their own unique, essential service within the medical field. Our allied team is solely devoted to filling allied health and non-clinical staffing needs across the United States.

Managed Service Provider (MSP)

Also in 2006, we began our MSP program. Favorite managed services (FMS) offers a way to reduce the stress of recruiting, credentialing, and vetting possible candidates while providing cost-saving solutions. As a healthcare MSP provider, we understand how difficult it is to find potential nursing, allied, and non-clinical healthcare professionals, which is why we partner directly with you to solve your staffing needs while managing and optimizing your workforce.

Emergency Response 

Favorite Healthcare Staffing created our emergency response division in 2007. With years of experience deploying personnel for disaster and emergency response needs, Favorite was uniquely qualified to help emergency management departments handle the COVID-19 pandemic. With an extensive national database of specialized nursing, allied health, and non-clinical professionals, we are able to provide immediate coordinated response for rapid deployment at the local, regionals, and national level.

Direct Hire

Favorite opened our direct hire division in 2010 with the mission of helping healthcare organizations manage agency spend by filling part-time and full-time direct hire job openings. With proven results in reducing costs, decreasing time to fill, and improving new hire retention rates, our recruitment process outsourcing team places quality nursing, allied health, and non-clinical professionals in a variety of settings including outpatient physician offices, assisted living facilities, rehab hospitals, surgery centers, and more.

One of the largest U.S. staffing agencies
