Health Carousel’s first acquisition part of continuing growth strategy; increases market share in nurse travel staffing and adds locum tenens physician staffing to the company’s service offerings
CINCINNATI – November 3, 2015 – Health Carousel, a leading provider of workforce solutions for healthcare, today announced the acquisition of Dayton, Ohio-based Next Medical Staffing. The acquisition is part of the company’s growth strategy, which includes expanding services and market share through acquisition of complementary high quality staffing companies. As a result of Next joining Health Carousel’s family of brands, the company adds scale to its existing nurse travel staffing business, adds locum tenens physician and nurse practitioner staffing to its service offerings and increases the number of healthcare professionals on assignment across the United States by 25 percent.
Next’s team will maintain its Dayton office and operate as a separately branded division of Health Carousel. Next founder and President Stacey Stanley will remain the leader of Next, joining the Health Carousel executive team as division president.
“We are very impressed with the Next team and believe they are a great addition to our company. We have similar cultures, working philosophies, and a shared commitment to customer and employee satisfaction,” said Bill DeVille, Health Carousel’s CEO. “The combination of services offered by Next immediately broadens Health Carousel’s menu of services, while Next’s travel staffing business adds scale and a second nurse travel recruiting brand. Our plan is to support Next’s growth by providing resources to hire and train additional internal staff, expand their marketing initiatives, and access to a more robust back-office infrastructure.”
“Health Carousel has a stellar reputation in the healthcare staffing industry, and this is a great opportunity to join forces and expand on what we have built here at Next,” said Stanley. “Joining Health Carousel allows us to maintain our brand and the continuity of our staff and provides the resources to accelerate our growth. Together, we can better serve our customers and clinical staff members and offer enhanced career opportunities for our employees. Health Carousel’s leadership team has a compelling vision for the future. We are thrilled to help make that vision a reality.”
DeVille added, “Our goal is to be considered among the top healthcare staffing companies in the country. We plan to achieve this goal by serving our clients and employees well, growing our current businesses, and expanding our portfolio of service offerings through strategic acquisitions of great companies like Next. We are excited to have Stacey and the Next team as part of the Health Carousel family. Together, we are a stronger business that is poised for tremendous growth.”
