Are you turning down admissions because you don’t have the staff to support your needs? Do you find yourself unable to capitalize on available reimbursement dollars? Are you looking for a more streamlined way to fulfill your open shifts? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then you are in the right place!
At GrapeTree, we work to provide you and your facility with solutions to fit your needs, fill your beds, and positively impact your bottom line.
Why we do it.
There is currently a nursing shortage crisis affecting almost every care facility in America. These shortages lead to facilities turning down admissions, over-working their current small staff, and ultimately, not working up to their full capacity potential. According to an article by the American Healthcare Association (AHCA) and the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL), more than 60 percent of nursing homes nationwide are being limited by this crisis.
GrapeTree works to combat staffing issues by offering our facilities seamless solutions to fill their beds and positively impact their bottom line. By pulling from our pool of experienced healthcare professionals, offering an online client access portal, and a dedicated 24/7 support staff, GrapeTree has been providing proactive solutions to healthcare facilities for over 20 years.
How we do it.
GrapeTree has a wide range of flexible staffing solutions to fit your needs. Our advanced scheduling technology and algorithms combined with our people model makes it easy to quickly connect our network of over 10,000 available healthcare professionals with your open needs to make better matches for your community. We can be a temporary solution for you to grow your census and fill your beds while making a positive impact on your bottom line. See below for a breakdown of our technology and people model.
