Tonawanda, NY – March 13, 2009: Worldwide Travel Staffing, Ltd. (WTS), a Tonawanda based healthcare recruitment firm, has been engaged by the King Edward VII Hospital in Bermuda to assist in their recruitment of American healthcare professionals.
WTS CEO, Leo Blatz, RN, MSN, and Todd Cleckley, Vice President of Business Development, recently met with hospital officials in Hamilton, Bermuda to finalize contract negotiations and toured the state of the art facility. Bermuda is experiencing a shortage of nurses, physicians, and allied healthcare professionals. This need prompted King Edward VII Hospital to look beyond their borders for healthcare staff. WTS specializes in the recruitment of nurses and other healthcare professionals for short and long term assignments (3 months to 3 years) throughout the United States and around the world.
WTS will have its first American nurse on Bermuda in April 2009, with others to follow in the coming months. WTS is the only US firm that is currently recruiting on behalf of King Edward VII Hospital and the Bermuda Hospital Board.
Worldwide Travel Staffing (WTS) was founded in 1993 to assist hospitals with their staffing needs by providing contract healthcare staff. WTS CEO, Leo Blatz, R.N., M.S.N. has lead the company’s expansion from being solely focused on domestic contracts to expanding their services internationally to include recruiting contracts in Bermuda, Guam, Ireland, U.K, and U.S. Virgin Islands among others. WTS has been listed by Inc. magazine as one of America’s fastest growing private companies for two years in 2007 and 2008.
