A Pasadena-based medical staffing company that connects medical professionals with hospitals and specialty care facilities has launched a new hiring program where these facilities can hire quality talent now and pay a set fee later.

ultraHealth Agency company officials said they started the program, called Hire Now, in response to the increasing need for more competent health care workers due to the COVID-19 emergency.

Hire Now includes marketing, a dedicated coordinator who will conduct one-on-one interviews, and credentialing services. It also allows healthcare facilities to fill multiple positions at a discounted price of $500 per hire, the company announced.

“Above all we are here to help and although we do have a business to operate, we feel as if we can be of service to the community,” Dane Flanigan, ultraHealth Agency CEO, said. “It is our social responsibility to do God’s work and help the best way we can. We realize the gravity of the situation and we need to do our best. We pray for the people that have been affected and we send our deepest condolences to those who have lost loved ones.”

The Hire Now program requires no upfront cost for the hiring employer, and ultraHealth provides a 90-day guarantee for each hire.

“Should the candidate need to be replaced for any reason within the 90-day period, we will gladly do so at no additional cost,” ultraHeath said.

The Hire Now program covers Level 1 licensed vocational nurses (LVNs) and Level 1 and 2 registered nurses (RNs), according to the company website.

ultraHealth said they source local California-based medical professionals that are “credentialed, compassionate, and professional.”

“The company has gained a high reputation in the San Gabriel Valley area for having some of the best staff in the country,” the company said.
