Building relationships with our travel professionals


It’s rare for us to get to meet our travelers but this week we had the pleasure of spending a couple of hours with many of them over dinner. An attempt to thank a group of employees working in the area turned into an opportunity to swap stories, gain a better appreciation of life as a travel healthcare professional and learn.

For example, below is one of the many conversations that took place as we honored a group of Soliant travel healthcare professionals that are currently on assignment with us.

Nurse: I told the doctor to hush because we were in a call to order.
Recruiter: What’s a call to order?
Nurse: A call to order is when the operating room team discusses the scheduled surgery to confirm we are all in agreement on the procedure.
Recruiter: That’s probably a good thing.

Sometimes the hustle and bustle of healthcare staffing gets in the way of expressing our appreciation for you but we want all of you that call Soliant home to know that we deeply appreciate your service. We couldn’t do our job without you.
