Parallon Opens First Location in Wisconsin as Demand for High-Quality Healthcare Staffing Grows

FRANKLIN, Tenn. --(Business Wire)--

With the increased demand for healthcare professionals amidst ongoing nurse shortages and continuing cost pressures on hospitals, Parallon, a leading provider of healthcare business process and operational services, has opened its first Wisconsin-based branch location at 250 East Wisconsin Avenue in Milwaukee. The new location offers both staffing support to acute and long-term healthcare facilities as well as placement services for experienced nurses, physicians and allied healthcare professionals interested in short and long-term assignments.

"In today's dynamic healthcare environment, hospitals are faced with the ongoing challenge to retain experienced, high-quality healthcare workers. We aim to help our client hospitals manage their most critical asset-the workforce-from recruiting and staffing to improved scheduling technologies," said Brendan Courtney, president and chief executive officer of the Parallon Workforce Solutions business unit. "Milwaukee has a great reputation as a hub for healthcare talent due to the diverse and thriving local healthcare organizations. We're thrilled to help cultivate this local talent and to be part of the solution that provides even greater care to the community."

"The new office allows us to better serve our local clients and to personalize our approach to the growing needs of te area," added Courtney. "We are excited to have a strong and experienced leader like Mike join our team to build the Milwaukee office and to help us grow our presence."
