PORTLAND, Ore.- EmPower Nursing & Allied Solutions, the travel-nursing branch of EmPower HealthIT, is celebrating one year of successful business. EmPower Nursing & Allied Solutions officially opened for business on January 5, 2016.

CEO, Dawn Whitney, decided to open a travel nursing company after many of the EmPower HealthIT clients were asking her to assist them in staffing Travel Nurses and Allied Health staff within their hospitals. Dawn hired Senior Vice President, Kim Lindauer, to help her create a strong team to enter a competitive market. “This year has been a great learning curve for the team, but we worked together to accomplish our goals. We are so excited to see what 2017 brings,” says Lindauer.

Whitney is also excited about the company’s future. “Starting a second staffing company from scratch has certainly been a challenge, however, it has also been one of our biggest accomplishments as team. We have built a strong community of nurses across the country that appreciates our uniqueness and dedication to finding them the very best next assignment. Our company grew extensively due to referrals and word of mouth, which is always the very best compliment a company, can receive,” says Whitney.

EmPower Nursing & Allied Solutions gained a new member during the last part of the year, nursing student, Maddie Garrett. “I love EmPower because it’s an awesome environment to work in and it has provided me with more ties to the nursing community. I have learned more about the travel nursing vocation and it has brought me great joy placing nurses across the country,” says Garrett. “Creating relationships with nurses from all over is one of the best parts of this job.”

EmPower Nursing & Allied Solutions is based in Portland, Oregon, and works with hospitals nationwide to assist in filling their nursing needs. EmPower Nursing is a small company that is proud to offer competitive packages and opportunities that bigger agencies simply cannot. While travel nurses are EmPower’s main focus, they also work with local contractors, allied health professionals and permanent placement nurses.
