NEW YORK, June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but when it comes to nurses, one Big Apple company is using more than fruit to entice care givers to come to its City! Leading Manhattan-based employment agency, Prime Staffing, not only employs its nurses but provides the total New York experience – including luxury accommodation, entree to New York's dining hot-spots, and tickets to sold out Broadway shows – to attract dedicated nurses to come to the Metropolis.

It is all part of Prime Staffing founder and President Michael Fazio's philosophy to lure qualified nurses from all over the country to New York to fill lucrative contracts. Traveling nurses are the core of Prime Staffing's multi-million dollar business, a company that was recently awarded the prestigious contract to be the "master vendor" of supplemental nursing staff for Manhattan's largest hospital, NewYork–Presbyterian Hospital.

Winning the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital account was the icing on the cake for Prime Staffing in its four year history, and is one of the largest freelance nursing contracts awarded in the city. Prime Staffing was selected from some of the top agencies in the country, including some publicly traded corporations.

"It's tremendous to be recognized by NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital for our services, professionalism and quality of nurses we provide," says Fazio.

While other cities around the country continue to struggle to find nurses, Fazio and his team are flourishing – not just because of the travel benefit and leisure incentives they offer, but because of the outstanding packages they provide to their nurses. Fazio sees his role as more of an "agent" than a traditional recruiter, and believes this is the key to his company's success.

"We go over and above the call of duty when it comes to our nurses. We take a hands-on "boutique" approach so that every last detail has a personal touch," says Fazio.

Prime Staffing is among a very small group of New York agencies to be certified by the Joint Commission, the leading regulatory body for healthcare organizations. For more information, please call Prime Staffing at 212 629 7200 or go to
