Yesterday, PPR Talent Management Group announced the purchase of 360 Healthcare Staffing (“360 HCS”), combining two powerful brands and creating one of the top travel nurse companies that spans the continuum of care!
PPR will continue to provide travel nurses to hospitals and other acute care centers, while 360 HCS – operating as a separate business division – will continue to provide interim, temp-to-hire and executive search services within the post-acute care segments.
“This acquisition increases the size and reach of our combined organization, provides a solid foundation for future growth, and establishes our market dominance in both the acute care and post-acute care sectors,” said Paul Helm, CEO of PPR.
The combined organization will offer a wide variety of services and solutions to the healthcare industry, including acute and post-acute care travel nursing, vendor management, education and executive search.
Both organizations have cultures that place high value on customer service and a strong commitment to creating an excellent working environment. In 2016, PPR was named the #7 Best Place to Work in America and one of 35 companies in the world to be honored with the Gallup Great Workplace Award. PPR is recognized throughout the industry for a “We put you first” approach with nurses. This translates to service and quality excellence for PPR clients.
360 HCS is known throughout the industry for leadership within the nursing niche and attracting top talent in both nurses and healthcare executives who provide exceptional service to 360 HCS clients. Marc Antoni, President of 360 HCS, and his leadership team will continue in their current roles and the unit will maintain its divisional headquarters in Tampa. Holly Bass, President of PPR, and her leadership team will continue in their current roles and PPR corporate headquarters will remain in Jacksonville Beach.
“Both 360 HCS and PPR pride themselves on delivering industry-best service and taking care of the people who serve our clients. This enables us to attract and retain top talent and is why we have a strong presence in the acute and post-acute care segments,” said Helm.
PPR was founded since 1996 as a healthcare staffing company focusing on contract travel nursing and therapy. The first office location was in the founder and former CEO Dwight Cooper’s home. The corporate headquarters is now on the boardwalk in Jacksonville Beach, FL. PPR operates in all 50 states.
Workplace culture is a huge priority for PPR. Representatives in every department pride themselves on creating a best-in-industry customer experience by creating a world-class culture, based on our core values – Trust, Excellence, Teamwork, Change and Service. We extend this cultural phenomenon to their healthcare professionals and clients, quickly building trust and enduring relationships with long-tenured relationships that are filled with a great balance of fun, friendship, adventure, commitment, and professionalism.
