Omaha, Neb., July 6, 2022 — Medical Solutions, one of the nation’s largest providers of total workforce solutions serving the healthcare industry, today announced that it has acquired Durham, NC-based Matchwell. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Launched in 2019, Matchwell’s AI enabled marketplace and SaaS solution efficiently matches licensed and certified staff with healthcare organizations across a variety of clinical settings ranging from hospitals to skilled and assisted living facilities, home health, clinics, and schools. Matchwell’s business model of subscription-based, per diem and local services expands Medical Solutions’ current portfolio of service offerings into the per diem and local markets and further bolsters the company’s total workforce solutions model.
“Matchwell’s long-standing reputation of innovation, providing customers with progressive solutions, and employee-centric culture mirrors what we’ve established at Medical Solutions. The acquisition of Matchwell aligns with our growth strategy and our vision of leading our industry,” said Craig Meier, CEO of Medical Solutions. “Matchwell’s emphasis on purpose and passion means the addition of the company’s operations, management team, and talented staff will complement our human-first approach. Together, we’ll deliver on our purpose of connecting care at even greater levels than we are today.”
Bringing Matchwell into the Medical Solutions family of service offerings will allow the company to provide even more opportunities and options for clinicians, increase its agility in meeting clients’ needs by providing them with an option for filling positions locally and on a per diem basis, and continue to provide value to stakeholders. Meier added, “The innovative technology advancements Matchwell has achieved in this sector enable direct transparency between clinicians and clients offering greater flexibility and providing a solution for our existing clients to better manage their internal clinician workforces.”
“Since the very beginning, Matchwell has been on a mission to help healthcare organizations better tap into their local community for filling contract or per diem work and to do so in the most efficient and transparent way possible,” says Matchwell’s Founder, Robert Crowe. “We are thrilled to find a strategic partner who is aligned with this vision and are excited about all that we will do for the industry together.”
