CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

"I had the pleasure of working with Krucial and Favorite Healthcare Staffing during the State of Florida’s response to Hurricane Irma. As an Emergency Coordinating Officer for the Florida Department of Health during the Hurricane Irma response, I can personally attest to the level of dedication that Krucial & Favorite Healthcare Staffing applies toward delivering critical staffing support. During this unprecedented response, the Florida Department of Health activated over 90 medical shelters serving over 10,000 clients with medical needs. Where no other staffing companies were able to commit staffing in the amount and with the timeliness needed to support the state sheltering mission, Krucial & Favorite a Healthcare Staffing were able to activate and deploy a total of 152 medical professionals consisting of 93 registered nurses, 30 licensed nurse practitioners, 4 registered respiratory therapists, and 25 direct care staff within 15 hours of establishing an agreement with the State. Additional staff were made available to us in both clinical and non-clinical roles.

The level of promptness and professionalism that was applied to serving Florida’s residents and visitors sets this staffing firm apart from other companies that lack the experience and dedication to serving the client. This was not an easy task, given the austere working environment, challenges presented, and the geographic distances between shelters. Overall, the clinical and non-clinical staff from Krucial & Favorite Healthcare Staffing demonstrated a positive attitude and a willingness to serve the impacted community. These efforts did not go unrecognized by the State and the survivors who were sheltered during the storm.

Finally, the overall management structure of the mission was exceptional. Brian Cleary, CEO at Krucial staffing was the IC (Incident Commander) for the event. Brian assured that all resources, command & control and coordination were ongoing around the clock. Brian also deployed non-billable resources to Florida to help with management of emergency operations which is certainly a sign of their commitment.
It is for the above that I have no reservations in recommending Krucial Staffing to any state or local government agency when emergency clinical and non-clinical staffing is being sought."
