As the aging population continues to accelerate in the U.S., so does the need for more healthcare services, resources, and staff. This growing volume of patients is contributing directly to the growing demand for experienced and qualified physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals on a full-time or temporary basis. Add to this a tight labor supply and higher churn rates due to low unemployment, the demand for temporary or temporary-to-permanent employees is even higher as clients scramble to fill in for departing workers.
This trend will continue over the next few years and will make medical staffing one of the leading employment sectors in the U.S. Furthermore, increased market consolidation and a shift toward ambulatory services from inpatient services are also likely to add to the market growth for health care staffing agencies during the coming years.
Protecting the Medical Staffing Industry
National wholesaler Highland Risk Services provides healthcare staffing agencies with sound, customized insurance solutions, helping our agency partners identify their clients’ risks and delivering staffing insurance solutions designed to respond to the exposures their insureds face. As healthcare staffing agencies generally employ doctors, nurses, nursing assistants, medical technicians, and others as contractors on offsite patient facilities, this presents unique liability conditions that require appropriate insurance coverage. Typically, healthcare staffing agencies have insurance needs that include: general liability, medical professional liability, employment practices, commercial auto, cyber, commercial umbrella, and other coverages – all of which we offer at Highland Risk.
