IntelliCare, a prominent provider of long-term care, and Omnicruit, an international healthcare talent acquisition company based in Hampton Roads, VA, have joined forces to address the nursing shortage in both the Philippines and the United States. This strategic partnership aims to leverage the strengths of both companies to develop a comprehensive solution that will offset the shortage of care providers and nurses within the IntelliCare organization, ultimately benefiting both nations.

This exciting partnership brings together Omnicruit’s expertise in talent acquisition and management with IntelliCare’s cutting-edge healthcare solutions. Together, they will offer a unique approach to bridging the nursing shortage through a program called “Gateway.” In addition to regular recruiting operations, this program will provide nurses with the opportunity to be trained in the Philippines before being employed in Hampton Roads, VA, and Houston, TX, through an agreement with Omnicruit.

Tim Armstrong, Managing Director of Omnicruit, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, stating, “We are thrilled to partner with IntelliCare to bring quality nurses to the Philippine and American market. Our Program will change so many lives, the nurse, the patient, and the lives of peer nurses in service of the sick. Together, we can provide a comprehensive approach to addressing the needs of healthcare and nursing in our two countries and beyond.”

Based in Portsmouth, VA, Omnicruit LLC is a professional international recruitment firm dedicated to placing highly qualified foreign and domestic registered nurses and other healthcare professionals into positions with United States healthcare facilities. As a minority-owned, multinational team of professionals, Omnicruit combines its expertise, global recruiting, and staffing experience to serve clients by finding the most qualified nurses to bridge the gap of the US nurse staffing shortfalls and placing them with exceptional healthcare facilities.

Omnicruit and IntelliCare’s collaboration aims to create innovative recruitment solutions for healthcare organizations across the country and internationally. With their extensive experience, they understand the challenges hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare facilities face in attracting and retaining qualified staff.

The Gateway program, resulting from their partnership with IntelliCare, is expected to have a transformative impact on the healthcare industry. As the nursing shortage in America continues, this collaboration aims to set a new standard for healthcare recruitment that puts nurses at the center of the process and provides healthcare organizations with the human resources they need to deliver exceptional patient care.
