Parallon Workforce Solutions Rebrands to Become HealthTrust Workforce Solutions

NASHVILLE, Tennessee—September 19, 2016—Parallon Workforce Solutions today announced that it is now doing business as HealthTrust℠ Workforce Solutions to reflect being part of the expanding portfolio of service offerings managed by HealthTrust. The decision was made to unify the brands under the well-respected HealthTrust name and underscore the total spend management capabilities of the aligned businesses.

“For nearly two decades, provider organizations have relied on HealthTrust to optimize supply chain and overall financial performance,” said Brendan Courtney, President and CEO of HealthTrust Workforce Solutions. “With labor representing the largest hospital expenditure, it made sense to align our capabilities to help meet provider demand for total spend management. There are not enough qualified healthcare professionals to meet our nation’s growing needs, and we are able to enhance labor productivity with the same operator insight that guides HealthTrust’s supply chain offerings.”

HealthTrust Workforce Solutions takes a data-rich approach to diagnosing areas for improvement, from assessing workforce and training gaps to identifying staffing and scheduling inefficiencies. Its strategies span clinical and administrative professionals, core and flexible staff, and executive-level and frontline talent. Each is shaped by HealthTrust Workforce Solutions’ first-hand experience as hospital operators and aimed at positively impacting patient and employee satisfaction, while delivering workforce efficiencies.
