Innovation at Heart of Health Carousel’s Nursing Development Program
The onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic utterly changed the world as we all knew it. What once seemed impossible would become the norm: entire cities, towns, and regions of nations shut down due to illness. With countless lives lost and nations impacted around the globe, getting healthcare back in working order to pre-pandemic levels has been a challenge that many service providers have been incapable of overcoming. This is where Health Carousel enters the equation.
Introducing the Efforts of Health Carousel
Health Carousel was founded in 2004 as a Cincinnati-based provider of key healthcare workforce solutions. Recognizing the key challenges faced by the global healthcare workforce, Health Carousel has implemented separate divisions to help healthcare facilities around the globe to meet the needs of its population.
Health Carousel was originally established to address chronic healthcare shortages throughout the United States. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, nursing shortages were a serious concern with a tendency to create negative outcomes for patients and providers. An overworked staff or an understaffed facility will face longer waiting periods, more human errors due to fatigue, and even unplanned and early retirements in its workforce.
With a full workforce of professionals and integrated offerings throughout the United States, Health Carousel aims to provide strategic and clinical managed services to providers throughout the country. Offering not just talent but training, Health Carousel helps companies to manage their talent in totality.
International Efforts and Travel Nursing
A primary goal of Health Carousel has been implemented through its Travel Nursing division. Health Carousel Travel Nursing aims at healthcare facilities that are facing shortages in their staffing due to short or long-term issues with the managed professionals that need to face the challenges that are presented to them.
Health Carousel utilizes its vast network of professional and highly-skilled credentialed nurses to pair facilities with the help that they require. Along the way, Health Carousel Travel Nursing attends to every other step of the journey, including travel, housing, and talent management. Most recently, these international nursing solutions have been aimed at the Philippines, where post-COVID struggles continue to persist in the nation’s healthcare system. The Health Carousel website declared that nearly 20,000 new Philippines nurses had been postponed from entering the workforce due to pandemic-related educational hardships.
Through these international efforts, Health Carousel hopes to provide ethical and high-quality solutions to most of the significant staffing shortages in the healthcare system. Through their efforts, Health Carousel has been awarded the Gold Seal of Approval for Healthcare Staffing Services from the team at the Joint Commission.
