That, and so much more…

“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

1. Our 20-Year Proven Process

You’ll receive far better service line improvement performance 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?

C. We manage, measure, and communicate at every step. Your Project Executive will be your management lifeline.

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 Perioperative leader. Interim leaders are replaceable… project executives are indispensable.


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

  • RN Turnover
