As the endorsed staffing partner of Solvent Networks, Qualivis can help with your entire contingent workforce needs. From crisis response and crisis planning to re-staffing your operating rooms and overall recovery after the peak of COVID-19, they’re here to support South Carolina hospitals.
As the curve shifts, having an emergency staffing plan is still imperative. However, it is also vital to plan beyond the immediate future. Qualivis understands that furloughed employees come first, and re-stabilizing financials is crucial to your organization.
They staff all temporary clinical positions – from CNAs, LPNs, Allied / Techs and Respiratory Therapists to RNs, Nurse Practitioners, CRNAs, Physician Assistants and Physicians. Qualivis works with clinics, rural hospitals, large acute care health systems, behavioral health facilities, hospice, home health and state departments of health.
Working with Qualivis is easy. They offer hospital-friendly terms that allow any length of assignment, crisis response quick-starts that guarantee your needs are filled fast with no volume commitment or annual fee. Qualivis can also be used as a back-up contract if your facility has an MSP contract with another vendor. If you’re having trouble with staffing current needs, costs, time-to-fill, communication or the quality of clinicians, Qualivis can be a resource to fill your needs while ensuring you are not in breach with your current provider.
