Nursefinders and its affiliates provide nurse, allied health and physician staffing to healthcare facilities and home care services throughout the U.S. The company is also the nation’s largest healthcare staffing provider of vendor management services (VMS).

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“With Resources On Call operating alongside our existing Club Staffing allied staffing brand, we believe that we have gained the number one position in the fast growing allied healthcare staffing sector in terms of revenues, with very strong brand equity and a reputation for quality,” said Nursefinders, Inc. CEO Bob Livonius. “This transaction perfectly aligns with our strategy of securing a leading market position in the four healthcare staffing sub-sectors of per diem nursing, travel nursing, allied health staffing and physician staffing, as well as being a strong regional player in the growing home care sector.”
Resources On Call will continue to operate under its same brand name and under the leadership of President Jeffrey Decker and his existing management team. “We are extremely excited about joining Nursefinders’ world-class family of companies,” said Decker. “Our clients are showing increasing interest in strategic solutions that help them better manage their contingent labor expenses. Resources On Call is now in a unique position to deliver these solutions within allied health and beyond.”

Together, Resources On Call and Club Staffing are a powerful force in the marketplace, offering expertise across all areas of allied health, including imaging, oncology, respiratory, rehabilitation, laboratory and pharmacy. In addition, we view multiple branding strategies as an effective approach in recruiting and retaining talented healthcare professionals.”
