“Why not substantially improve your Service Line and capture real dollars while you’re screening permanent leaders?”

– Matt Berry, CEO

The HealthLinx® Performance Improvement Difference

You’ll receive far better Acute Care performance improvement than any other interim staffing company or executive search firm.

A. Our improvement process Exists. We do not just leave you with a warm body. Why “Staff”, when you can achieve your goals?

2. The Project Executive

Have you ever wanted to clone yourself?

From HealthLinx, your C-Level, boots-on-the- ground performance improvement expert works with your Acute Care leader. Interim leaders are replaceable… project executives are indispensable.

These executives will drive improvement in Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) such as:

  •  RN Turnover

  • Nurse Sensitive Indicators (NSIs)
  • Patient Flow
