As of the last count, in December 2021, there were 110 acute care hospitals in the state of New Jersey. Those hospitals contained a total of 26,740 registered beds to treat patients. However, it is anticipated that there will be a major staffing crisis in the healthcare profession in the coming years. The profession simply isn’t as attractive to prospective students as before. Also, there is so much more demand for these services. Healthcare spending in the United States increased to $4.3 billion in 2021. That is a total of $12,914 in spending per capita. The population is aging rapidly and requiring more specialized healthcare services. However, hospitals are struggling to keep up with their staffing needs to meet that demand. All of this makes for a strong case for hospitals and other medical facilities to reach out and collaborate with Vitalis Consulting.
As specialists in the work of healthcare industry staffing, Vitalis Consulting knows how to obtain the highly trained professionals necessary to staff up any hospital, doctor’s office, or other healthcare facility.
Top Hospitals in New Jersey
To better see the staffing needs of hospitals in New Jersey, it is best to review the different types of hospitals that exist out there in the first place. Let’s take a look at some of the hospitals that serve the New Jersey population.
Hackensack University Medical Center
We might as well start at the top. With 781 beds, Hackensack University Medical Center is the biggest hospital in the state of New Jersey. It also holds the distinction of being a training and research hospital. The hospital is nationally ranked for its work in cardiology and heart surgery, urology, neurology, and neurosurgery. This is also something that puts this hospital right at the top of the list of places to go for these services in the minds of many patients.
Morristown Medical Center
Not far behind, in second place, Morristown Medical Center has 735 beds in its facility. It operates within the Atlantic Health System in New Jersey and is the largest of seven hospitals that operate within that system. The American College of Surgeons recognizes it as a Level I regional trauma center. Additionally, this helps it stand out from the rest of the hospitals that operate within the area.
Newark Beth Israel Medical Center
This hospital is the premier hospital of the RWJBarnabas Health system and has 667 beds. This is a non-profit healthcare corporation based in West Orange, New Jersey. The hospital has also received many awards and much recognition for its heart and lung transplantation and robotic surgery offerings.
Cooper University Hospital
This hospital is associated with the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University. It features 663 beds and is a Level I trauma center. This hospital has performed an extremely high volume of surgeries in 2021. They also did 24,021 surgeries that year.
St. Joseph’s University Medical Center
A Catholic health system-funded hospital, St. Joseph’s University Medical Center has 650 beds where they take care of patients with a wide variety of different medical needs. They offer services such as:
- Women’s Health
- Internal medicine
- and more
The hospital is top-ranked in many of the categories that it provides services in.
Why These Hospitals (and Others) Need to Partner With Vitalis Consulting
As you can see, New Jersey has a wealth of large and impressive hospitals. However, even hospitals of this size and stature must collaborate with outside partners to assist with their staffing needs.
Vitalis Consulting is the ideal partner to work with to fulfill vital staffing roles that might otherwise go unfilled. A few of the upsides of working with Vitalis Consulting include the following:
Reduced Fees for Direct Hires
Vitalis Consulting can reach out and find qualified individuals to fulfill important roles within the hospital. When those individuals are hired as direct hires, Vitalis Consulting only takes a one-time fee of 15% of the annual salary of the new hire. This is lower than the industry average of 20%, and that helps the hospital save a little money when hiring new employees.
Temporary Staffing Solutions
We understand that certain things must be accomplished within the hospital itself that needs to be done right now, but only with the help of temporary workers. Some jobs simply aren’t big enough on their own to require the services of a full-time employee. Bringing in temporary staff means that the hospital can accomplish its tasks without paying a full-time salary and benefits. Here at Vitalis Consulting, we have a deep pool of talented workers who are ready to step up and fulfill the temporary roles that some hospitals need to be filled today.
We want our partners to understand that we will only send them the most talented and able staff to assist with the tasks that they need accomplished. This is why we offer a 4-month guarantee for any employee that we place with a partner. This is to say that we will replace the employee with another worker if that employee leaves or is terminated for poor performance within their first 4 months on the job. The industry average is to only offer one to two months of guarantees, but we feel that providing four months gives our partners more peace of mind.
What you can see here is that we are serious about staffing up the hospitals and other medical facilities that we work with. We want them to be entirely comfortable with the staff that they receive from our team. It is so important to our mission and to our ability to build lasting relationships with our business partners that we provide them with the absolute best staffing solutions that they could ever possibly receive.
If you work for a hospital or deal with anything related to its staffing, we want to speak with you. Our team will collaborate with yours to determine which staffing needs you need to fulfill the most and how we can step in to assist you with that. If you contact us we will gladly begin the process of creating a staffing plan that works best for you and your specific needs.
