Plymouth Meeting, PA, July 10, 2018 – General Healthcare Resources, a subsidiary of GHR Healthcare, announced today that they have been named the exclusive Managed Services Provider (MSP) partner to OccuVAX, one of the country’s leading providers of onsite influenza vaccination clinics.

“We are very excited to be working with OccuVAX on this important program and thrilled they are a part of our growing list of MSP clients” said Janet Elkin, President and CEO of GHR Healthcare. “As their MSP partner, we will ensure they have the Registered Nurses and the LPNs/LVNs they need to staff the 700-plus company-based clinics they will provide across the country.”

Since 2002, OccuVAX has worked with more than 2,900 companies in over 2,600 cities to provide onsite inoculation clinics. Based in Omaha, Nebraska, their all-inclusive solution provides a turn-key onsite service including staff, vaccine and all supplies.

“This program helps ensure employees across the country have the opportunity to be vaccinated at their workplace, saving time, money and, most importantly, lives,” said Dave MacFarlane, CEO of OccuVAX. “As our staffing partner and exclusive MSP, we depend on General Healthcare Resources to provide us with the recruiting resources and logistical support to allow us to expand our ability to serve even more companies as we move into the 2018/2019 flu season.”

A workforce solution strategy growing in popularity within the healthcare industry, a Managed Services Provider (MSP) program allows a company to outsource their contingent staffing operations to an experienced outside provider who specializes in managing complex staffing operations. By providing program consolidation, operational oversight and management, process streamlining, direct support services and affiliate network coordination, a MSP program delivers a cost-efficient and effective solution, while allowing the healthcare organization to focus on their core competencies.

“We’ve already hit the ground running,” said Tania Fornelos, AVP and the OccuVAX program Executive Sponsor for General Healthcare Resources. “I’m talking to potential affiliate vendors every day and our recruiting efforts are already generating great response from RNs and LPN/LVNs. We’re proud to be working with such a quality company on such an important program.”

Staffing agencies who are interested in possibly taking part in the Affiliate Vendor program for OccuVAX should contact Tania Fornelos at 800-879-4471 for details.
