The only certainty during these uncertain times is that healthcare facilities are falling short on their staffing needs throughout the United States. However, Fortus Healthcare Resources, a nationally recognized healthcare staffing agency located in Utica, NY, is helping ease the staffing shortage and the urgent need for more healthcare professionals. 

Fortus Healthcare Resources has seen more than 1,000 new job openings looking for COVID-19 support across the country, with more and more coming every day. The spike in critically ill patients, coupled with the possibility of front line workers being forced into quarantine by COVID-19 infection has prompted the sudden growth of available employment opportunities from Alaska to Florida.

President, Jeremy Enck expressed “The issues of healthcare staffing shortages are being enhanced with the COVID 19 pandemic. Many facilities are already operating with relatively few nurses throughout the year. By working with a staffing agency like Fortus Healthcare Resources, we are able to find the best quality healthcare professional for our clients and ensure success for their continued quality of patient care.”


“We at Fortus Healthcare Resources are working diligently to provide quality clinical staff nationwide. Our team has increased our efforts to deliver dedicated clinicians that are eager to care for those afflicted by this pandemic. We are committed to do our part throughout this crisis.” Founder and CEO of Fortus Healthcare Resources, Michael Maurizio stated. 

With nearly 30 years of experience in the healthcare staffing industry, Fortus Healthcare Resources is working diligently to help fill the surplus of open positions as quickly as possible to provide much needed reinforcement to those healthcare professionals who have been battling the COVID-19 outbreak for weeks. Thanks to a waiver of individual state licensure requirements, offers of crisis pay, and numerous additional incentives, Fortus has already placed several healthcare professionals into new positions on the frontline of the COVID-19 outbreak, with many more on deck.
