Growth-Stage Nursing Jobs and Allied Health Professionals Marketplace Now Owned by Medical Solutions

DURHAM, N.C., July 6, 2022 — Matchwell, the healthcare staffing solution built for today’s flexible workforce, announced it has been acquired by Medical Solutions, one of the nation’s largest providers of total workforce solutions serving the healthcare industry. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. This acquisition will serve to connect thousands of healthcare organization partners with hundreds of thousands of nurses and allied health professionals looking for travel, local contract, and per diem work.

“Matchwell’s mission is 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,” said Matchwell’s Founder, Robert Crowe. “In partnering with Craig and the team at Medical Solutions, we’ve found a strategic partner who aligns with this vision – and I could not be more excited about all that we will do to meet the current and future demands of the healthcare staffing industry.”

In a separate release, Medical Solutions CEO, Craig Meier, noted how Matchwell’s business model further bolsters Medical Solutions’ total workforce solutions and expands its current portfolio of service offerings into the per diem and local markets. “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,” said Meier.

The Matchwell team is a largely remote work staff that will continue to operate out of its Durham, NC headquarters and leverage its rich Research Triangle Park roots. By aligning with Omaha, NE-based Medical Solutions, Matchwell will continue its mission to supply modern staffing tools to its healthcare organization partners while empowering clinicians to find work their way.

A message from Matchwell CEO Robert Crowe:

“It’s not every day one celebrates a title demotion and eagerly puts the CEO business cards on the shelf. 
 
From the very beginning, what we set out to do was never about Matchwell. It was about building a newly imagined staffing solution that puts healthcare organizations in control of accessing and engaging a flexible workforce while empowering healthcare clinicians seeking more work-life harmony to put their needs front and center. At all costs, we had to be part of the solution and never the problem.
 
I’m humbled by the reception the industry has shown Matchwell. THANK YOU! In order to scale Matchwell to every healthcare organization and to every clinician in the US, I’m beyond proud to announce our acquisition by Medical Solutions.
 
It’s also not every day one finds a strategic partner whose culture, infrastructure, and mission align with their own, but that is what we have found in Medical Solutions. We are excited and ready to go farther together. 
 
For those healthcare organizations that have been on our waitlist – we’re ready.
 
For clinicians seeking more work-life harmony through contract or per diem work across the whole of America, we’re ready.
 
For those of you interested in joining us as we redefine the power of a flexible workforce, impacting how America provides care, we’re ready.
 
I couldn’t be more proud of all that the Matchwell team has accomplished in such a short amount of time and I cannot wait to see the great work that Matchwell and Medical Solutions will do together.

Onward and Upward!”
