"We have truly evolved as a company, and we felt it was time to express that with a new brand," said David Bartholomew, President and Chief Executive Officer of Shearwater Health. "We offer a much more comprehensive suite of services than we did just a few years ago."
HCCA International has been recruiting and deploying highly experienced nurses and other medical professionals from the Philippines to hospitals and healthcare organizations in the U.S. since 2002. During this time, HCCA International has placed more than 1,000 nurses in over 100 U.S. hospitals.

These services are provided by approximately 1,500 clinical and administrative support professionals working in the Philippines and the United States. The company focuses solely on healthcare and works with leading companies in the payer, provider and group health sectors.
"We help clients improve outcomes and reduce spending while freeing up clinical professionals and administrative staff to focus on objectives that maximize their talents," said Bartholomew. "Plus our approach is fully scalable — we can grow our relationship with customers as their business grows."
