The FlexCare Difference

FlexCare was born out of a desire to improve the healthcare staffing process for clinicians and healthcare facilities. Over time, FlexCare has consciously instilled key foundational pillars that support this purpose, encompassing our 'High-Pay, Hassle-Free' philosophy, our unique S1NGLEPOINT Recruiter model, and our innovative job matching and assignment management tool, the FlexCare 360 mobile app.       

"High-Pay, Hassle-Free"

At the heart of FlexCare's "High-Pay, Hassle-Free" philosophy is our belief that healthcare professionals should receive the highest compensation for an assignment without negotiating. We are transparent with clinicians when making offers and ensure that every pay package is meticulously reviewed with our travelers before they apply for jobs, arming them with the information they need to support their travel career objectives.       

S1NGLEPOINT Recruiters 

Recognizing the value of our travelers' time, we aim to streamline their experiences with our S1NGLEPOINT Recruiter model. Instead of juggling interactions with departments like Compliance, Payroll, and Housing, clinicians have a single point of contact to handle all aspects of their travel career – their recruiter.        

FlexCare 360 

Our FlexCare 360 mobile app empowers travelers to effortlessly synchronize their career and lifestyle goals. The user-friendly app has an intuitive job board powered by Google Maps, personalized job searches, proprietary job matching technology, application monitoring, assignment notifications, direct communication with your recruiter, swift access to HR resources, and much more.
