Texas health system forms temp agency to woo nurses

Dallas News, July 27, 2009

Texas Health Resources Inc., the largest hospital system in North Texas, has formed a temp agency with Arlington-based Medfinders, Inc. to oversee the staffing of all per-diem nurses for Texas Health's 14 hospitals across North Texas. By having an in-house agency, Texas Health says it's better able to fill its 5% nurse vacancy rate and avoid costly overtime by paying temporary nurses to cover shifts of full-time nurses.
