TaleMed’s Dedication to Allied Health Careers
TaleMed specializes in placing travel healthcare professionals all across the United States. We’ve recently placed more focus on allied health professionals. Distinct from nursing, there are over 1 million allied health professionals currently employed in the U.S., including:
- Physical therapists
- Surgical technologists
- Speech language pathologists
- Medical social workers
- Diagnostic medical sonographers
- Medical technologists
- Occupational therapists
- Radiologic technologists
- Respiratory therapists
Why now? “The biggest reason is there’s a void. There are fewer companies actually working on that side of the industry, but hospitals and healthcare systems need these professionals, and they’re available and want to travel,” says Allan San Diego, Allied Staffing Manager for TaleMed. “Not every travel company serves this group, and we’re here to fill that need.”
The growing need for allied health professionals
This is especially pertinent as the baby boomer population ages. The patient population is growing. But the number of allied health professionals hasn’t been able to keep up. Therapists play a huge role in helping people recover and improve their quality of life with acute health problems and chronic issues. Technologists have an ever-increasing role in hospitals, helping the healthcare system work efficiently and making it possible to serve more patients. Consequently, TaleMed has made it a priority to meet the challenges of Allied Health staffing.
“We started investing more in allied health in the last quarter of 2018 due to a projection of 25% job growth for all allied health professions between now and 2022,” says Ken Tracy, President at TaleMed. “That’s why we’re providing competitive pay, comprehensive health benefits and superior support to professionals who decide to join our team.”
Investing more in allied health has meant creating a team specifically for recruiting in this field including, among other specialties, a registered dietitian. That’s one of the many ways TaleMed can help you fulfill your professional goals and personal dreams.
“Allan and his team are among our best recruiters and are ready to help allied professionals find the assignments that meet their professional objectives in the places they want to go,” Ken said.
