While other medical staffing agencies focus on transactions, we focus on the heart of your mission — caring for others.

Caring for others isn’t a vocation—it’s a passion, a true calling. It is challenging and rewarding in ways that are beyond measure. It can also be difficult. At Snelling, we understand that HIPPA laws and the Affordable Care Act have ushered in a new wave of complexity and demands that make your job tougher. Not all medical staffing agencies are as enlightened.

Whether you are part of a large healthcare organization, a small private practice or a medical professional looking for a new opportunity, Snelling delivers expert service other medical staffing agencies simply can’t match.

Can staffing agencies bridge the gap? Snelling can.

When you strategize with one of our account reps, you leverage years of expertise in human capital—which frees you up to focus on all the other demands of your business.

We’re more than a staffing agency. We’re your advocate. We understand how stressful and time consuming finding the right talent can be. We make it less stressful. Unlike other staffing agencies, we listen. We counsel. We carefully vet every candidate through a rigorous interview and screening process before we present them to you.

We’re not a “business-as-usual” staffing agency. We’ve weathered seismic shifts in the economy, education, information technology and hiring best practices—always keeping in mind that our clients come first. Through it all, we’ve adapted, we’ve evolved and emerged uniquely qualified to serve you in ways other staffing agencies simply can’t.

Partner with a real advocate.

Our professional acumen, deep connections in the medical industry and community—along with a client-centric approach — set us apart from other medical staffing agencies. We provide qualified, properly credentialed, thoroughly-vetted candidates to meet your needs. Just as importantly, we offer a broad scope of staffing solutions — professional search, direct-hire, temp-to-hire and contingent (temporary) — for a spectrum of medical positions, including:

Allied Health
Clinical Research
Government Healthcare
Medical Coding
Nursing (every area of specialty)

Physician Assistants
Therapy – Physical, Occupational, Respiratory, Speech

Do other medical staffing agencies seem more interested in getting a commission than understanding your needs? Do they miss the mark when it comes to ensuring all the details are in order — competency testing, credentialing, background and reference checks?

At Snelling, our approach isn’t transactional — it’s thorough. We understand how stressful and time consuming looking for your best-fit can be—whether you are a candidate or an employer.

Let us help you with your job search.

Tired of sending your resume into cyber space and dealing with medical staffing agencies that don’t return your call, don’t speak your language? You need Snelling. We listen. We mentor. We provide you with personalized one-on-one help whether you are looking for permanent or PRN assignments.
