Information



Apr 26, 2001, 01:00 ET from Martin, Fletcher

    IRVING, Texas, April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Martin, Fletcher, the nationally
 recognized healthcare consulting and staffing firm, today released their
 annual nursing and allied healthcare compensation and benefits report.  This
 assessment of the market is drawn from thousands of conversations with nurses
 and allied healthcare workers across the United States.  It provides market
 assessment for the healthcare field in general and all specialties of allied
 care while including specifics such as: salary averages, changes from 1999,
 bonuses, benefits and more.
     Martin, Fletcher develops this report each year to help hospitals,
 professionals and all those involved in healthcare learn exactly what
 challenges are being faced.  One such issue is that hospitals continue to put
 money into contract labor rather than increasing compensation for permanent
 staff and aggressively attracting new employees.
     "Nurses are frustrated with their current work conditions," said John
 Buffa, CEO and Co-Founder of Martin, Fletcher.  "Realizing the early exit of
 current professionals and less entering the medical field, hospitals need a
 permanent solution where contract labor is only a temporary one."
     Martin, Fletcher has helped the healthcare community with their challenges
 placing hundreds of nurses and allied healthcare workers in permanent
 positions in 2000 and has grown to become the largest nursing and allied
 permanent placement firm in the nation.  Averaging a growth rate of 13.5% per
 month and 600% for the year 2000, Martin, Fletcher currently boasts over one
 million dollars per month in revenue.  The Nursing and Allied Healthcare
 report is only one of the many services that Martin, Fletcher provides for
 hospitals and the healthcare community with input from healthcare employees
 alone.
     The Martin, Fletcher report further illustrates that nursing shortages
 remain the biggest challenge in healthcare, as research shows the more
 specialized the position, the harder it is to fill.  Hospitals realize this,
 but are hampered by a shortage of budgets, resources and time.  Martin,
 Fletcher is doing what it can to combat problems for hospitals, with countless
 hours consulting, they help solve issues within the hospital.
     "Our position in the healthcare world is to help hospitals and individuals
 with their staffing needs," Buffa said.  "Not only is that finding them
 qualified candidates, but it is also a learning process of educating hospitals
 on their individual situations and potential issues.  60% of our process is
 evaluating our clients' need and creating them a recruitment strategy."
