Texas Hospital Association Endorses HealthIT Project Managers as Healthcare IT Staffing Provider

ATLANTA - The Texas Hospital Association (THA) and its marketing subsidiary, HealthSHARE, announce the addition of national staffing company HealthIT Project Managers (HPM) as their exclusive staffing vendor for experienced healthcare technology project managers. The firm specializes in the placement of contract project managers in technical, clinical, and facilities-based roles into hospitals of all sizes.

The five-year agreement includes HPM and the other eleven operating divisions of HPM's parent, Jackson Healthcare.

"Jackson Healthcare brings a breadth and depth of industry staffing experience to Texas hospitals and offers a single-source solution for their physician, clinical and health IT staffing needs," said Jim Dixon, president/chief executive officer of HealthSHARE. "Jackson also offers our hospitals a technology-driven approach to achieving system-wide operational efficiencies and capacity management to reduce average length of stay."

Jackson was chosen after successfully passing THA's rigorous selection process. "Gaining the THA-endorsed company status is not an easy undertaking for any company. Like other THA-endorsed companies, Jackson Healthcare underwent an extensive multi-level due diligence process to garner this prestigious designation, achieved by only the best of breed businesses in their areas of expertise," said Dixon.

"We are very proud to enter into this collaborative relationship with THA," said Jack Williams, President of HealthIT Project Managers. "THA is an industry leader in its approach and vision to provide quality, compassionate, affordable health care access to all Texans. Plus, the association's respect for and protection of the patient/provider relationship aligns with our organization's 'others first' philosophy."

Jackson Healthcare's operating divisions already provide temporary and permanent staff to Texas hospitals. They believe THA's endorsement will take their relationship with Texas hospitals to a new level.
