Hospitals operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week – ready to receive patients anytime, day or night. So what happens when medical personnel get sick, go on maternity leave, transfer or quit? How do healthcare facilities maintain the level of patient care they are accustomed to providing, if they suddenly become short-staffed?
DiagnosTemps, the largest provider of interim radiology professionals in theDallas-Fort Worth area, allows healthcare facilities to plan for this contingency.
“We provide temporary help to hospitals, physician’s offices, surgery centers and imaging centers across the United States– often on very short notice,” said Matthew Broderick, president of Dallas-based DiagnosTemps. “We specialize in diagnostic radiology – people that do X-rays, MRIs, CTs, mammography, ultrasound, and echocardiography. In small towns across America, it’s not always easy to find these technologists, and that’s where we come in.”
DiagnosTemps has been providing specialized staffing assistance for more than 19 years. With diagnostic radiology as their only focus, DiagnosTemps offers expertise and responsiveness that other allied staffing companies cannot.
“Friendly service, character and dependability – that’s why we rely on DiagnosTemps,” said Theresa Strong, Imaging Manager at Cooper Clinic in Dallas. Recognized as the “gold standard” in comprehensive physical examinations for company executives, Cooper Clinic offers breast health services, preventive and cosmetic dermatology, cardiology, imaging, gastroenterology and nutrition services – with same day results. “We’re unique in that we deliver a complete picture of your health and how to improve it in one day. Quick response and confidentiality matter, and DiagnosTemps takes this into consideration,” said Strong.
Broderick purchased DiagnosTemps in 1999, with the goal of running the company the way he wanted to – “with honesty, integrity, treating employees the way they need to be treated, and providing great customer service.”
DiagnosTemps was recently named a True Blue DFW Business based upon its record of meeting these objectives while delivering high quality, cost-effective healthcare services.
“This is a tremendous honor,” Broderick told news anchor Scott Sams during a True Blue Business interview airing on KRLD NewsRadio 1080. “To have this recognition helps validate what we’ve been trying to do all along.”
DiagnosTemps is now the largest provider of temporary radiology professionals in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
In 2010, DiagnosTemps was named one of the Top 100 Places to Work by the Dallas Morning News.
“Our employees – they make or break us,” Broderick explained. “After all, that is what we do – we are a provider of people. So we try to go above and beyond for our employees. We help them with their continuing education requirements. We offer a full range of benefits. And one week out of the year, radiologic technologists receive special honor. This year we gave them a prepaid debit card to go out and do whatever they wanted to do. And they loved it.”
DiagnosTemps also has a history of giving back to the community. In 2009, for example, the company participated in an AAA (Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm) screening program at Baylor All Saints Hospital in Fort Worth. Hundreds of people were able to take advantage of the free screening event, for which DiagnosTemps provided sonographers.
“Giving back to the community is important to us. Our employees are vitally important, too,” Broderick said. “As for our clients, they know that in their time of need, they can depend on us. We are able to get good people there quickly to keep healthcare facilities up and running.”
