Distinguished healthcare staffing company nets two nods on prestigious staffing list 

OMAHA, Neb. — Medical Solutions, a healthcare staffing company which connects nurses and allied health clinicians to hospitals and healthcare systems, is proud to announce that Craig Meier, Vice Chairman of the Board and former CEO of Medical Solutions, and Adam Francis, President of Host Healthcare, a Medical Solutions brand, have been named to the 2024 North American Staffing 100 List by Staffing Industry Analysts. 

The Staffing Industry Analysts’ North American Staffing 100 List recognizes leaders whose impact on the workforce ecosystem elevates and evolves the industry. The list is not a ranking, but simply an aggregation of the 100 individuals who have influenced the world of staffing. Those on the list include entrepreneurs, CEOs of large staffing companies, and those who have had a major impact or influence through mergers and acquisitions or legislative change. 

Meier catapulted Medical Solutions into a leading healthcare talent ecosystem with a servant leadership approach. In 2023, he drove three impactful acquisitions, expanding services and reinforcing the company’s commitment to great patient outcomes. Meier’s guidance secured positions on SIA’s largest healthcare staffing (No. 2) and fastest-growing US staffing firms (No. 22) lists, alongside 16 consecutive years on the Inc. 5000. Meier recently announced his transition from CEO to Vice Chairman of the Medical Solutions Board of Directors where he will remain fully engaged in the company’s strategy and merger and acquisition strategy.  

Francis has led Host Healthcare, which he founded in 2012, to become one of the fastest-growing and highest-ranked travel healthcare firms in the US. With revenue growth of over 1,500% from 2019 to 2022, the company was acquired by Medical Solutions in the fourth quarter of 2022. In 2023, Francis continued to lead Host Healthcare while also serving on the Medical Solutions executive team. He also actively contributes to multiple nonprofit organizations that align with Host’s mission of helping others live better. Francis attributes Host’s success to its strong culture, earning numerous accolades, including SIA’s Best Staffing Firms to Work For. 

This is the fourth year both Meier and Francis were named to the list and seventh consecutive year Meier has been included.
