Why Utilize Acumen Medical Staffing?

We know that regardless of the higher hourly rates for “agency” nurses, most clients are aware that there is indeed cost savings when you take into account all the following areas you save by using us….

    No benefit costs (Health insurance, vacation/sick days, etc.)
    No payroll tax costs to you
    *No workman’s compensation insurance costs to you
    *No professional liability insurance costs to you
    Lower recruiting costs (We are asking nurses to experience your facility)

During slow times where there is low census, you have the ability to go with less staff, cutting your expense completely instead of having to pay full-time costs when the need is not there.

Still, we certainly understand that due to patient care reasons, it is important to have regular staff taking care of your patients for familiarity reasons. We understand that this is why all healthcare providers always prefer full-time staff over staff from outside companies. Our goal is always to provide our partners with regular staff whom you prefer and will help you keep high marks when it comes to the continuity of care you provide.
