What is supplemental healthcare staffing?
Supplemental staffing is the process of finding the right employee with appropriate qualifications or experience and recruiting them to fill a position, role, or job. The goal of this is to create positive impacts on the organization’s effectiveness by having a sufficient quantity and quality workforce.
Supplemental healthcare staffing allows medical facilities to hire temporary caregivers when they are not able to fill positions on their own. These facilities can include assisted living facilities, hospitals, urgent care clinics, school districts, and so on. There are over 80 positions that fall under the category of allied healthcare professionals, so the need is far greater than some may realize.
How can having a supplemental staffing and home care franchise business deliver benefits to medical facilities in your community?
The senior population is on the rise, and Interim HealthCare franchisees serve the full continuum of care from pediatrics to hospice and palliative care. 57 years of experience makes Interim HealthCare the original home care brand. As baby boomers continue to age, many senior care facilities and home care agencies have become overwhelmed with an abundance of care needed to keep up with demand.
Supplemental staffing means that patients will not be left without the care they need. Some medical facilities in the past have had to turn away patients because they didn’t have the staff to keep up. Contracting a supplemental staffing agency, hospitals, assisted living facilities, and so on will be able to give peace of mind to the once-overwhelmed divisions in the medical industry.
A flexible staffing model can help to mitigate HR-related risks while meeting the facility’s needs. By addressing issues such as compliance, overtime, and turnover costs, facilities will gain the ability to manage a more cost-effective staffing model. Providing top-tier professionals and maintaining continuity of care can help keep medical facilities on track and provide better overall care to patients.
With over 57 years of industry experience, Interim HealthCare is ranked in the Top 10 per diem staffing companies in the United States.

What kinds of positions would you be filling as home healthcare and supplemental staffing business owner?
Providing temporary staffing to a local medical facility has possibilities. With the wide range of positions falling under the category of “allied health professional,” this involves more opportunities than filling nursing positions alone. Some of the positions that your supplemental staffing franchise business could fill include:
– Physical or occupational therapists or assistants
– Speech pathologists
– Medical lab, imaging, and radiology professionals
– Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) or Personal Care Aides (PCA)
– Register Nurses (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN)
And the list goes on. There are also various types of schedules that can be addressed within the supplemental staffing business line depending on the needs of the facility or the availability of the caregiver. These schedules include per diem/hourly, contract staff, temporary to permanent, and direct hire.
The Interim HealthCare franchise opportunity will also provide you with access to contracts that assist you when one of your caregivers is given a full-time position. The facility will buy out your contract, giving you additional revenue. This is a great sign because it means that the facility knows you care about the quality of the staff you hire and send to work every day.
Word of mouth will go a long way in your supplemental staffing business, and it is very likely that if the facility is impressed, they will come back to you again and again. Interim HealthCare has even implemented a five-star quality program for caregivers that focuses on talent selection and skill matching. The credentialing of medical personnel hired by Interim HealthCare includes competency assessments, background checks, and drug screens, orientation, reference checks, and quality monitoring.

Yet another reason why medical facilities rely on Interim HealthCare supplemental staffing again and again.
