Massachusetts Command Center Currently Recruiting for Healthcare Professionals

April 14, 2020
 
The Massachusetts COVID-19 Command Center/ Facility Staffing Outreach team is recruiting healthcare professionals to care for COVID-19 patients. The increasing demand for workers far exceeds the current supply, so we are seeking your assistance in our recruitment efforts.
 
To streamline the process a Facility Staffing Portal was created for healthcare professionals to apply for a volunteer or job opportunity at a long-term care/ post-acute site across the state. The Staffing Portal can be accessed here: https://covid19ltc.umassmed.edu/
 
There is an urgent need for: Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical and Vocational Nurses, Certified Nursing Assistants and Patient Care Technicians, Physical Therapists and Assistants, Occupational Therapists and Assistants, Social Workers and Activity Coordinators.

Student nurses (LPN and ADN students who are in their final semester, or 3rd or 4th year BSN students) are encouraged to apply as a CNA/Patient Care Technician at post-acute sites.

Temporary housing is available for workers who are unable to commute daily. Healthcare professionals should inquire about housing on the intake portal.

Please share this opportunity and the link https://covid19ltc.umassmed.edu/ with colleagues. After completing the online intake form on the portal, candidates will receive a confirmation email and be contacted for next steps.

The Command Center is seeking to fill positions immediately. This call to action is critical to saving the lives of our neighbors, families and friends. We appreciate your assistance in helping us to find the healthcare talent needed to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
