The New Normal in Healthcare
Like so many of you, I am ready to transition to the hope and promise of a new year. And while 2020 was filled with challenges and uncertainty, I feel it is important to look back with clear eyes to review what we have learned and to also look forward to see where we should focus our attention in 2021.

Looking Towards a Brighter Future
I think it would be fair to say that in my more than 20 years with Supplemental Health Care, none of them were quite as challenging as this year. Not surprisingly, through it all, our amazing team was still putting their patients first and providing quality care despite all the obstacles.

Supplemental Health Care Donates to the Equal Justice Initiative in Honor of Juneteenth
Juneteenth is celebrated each year on June 19.  I will admit that, while I had heard of Juneteenth, until this year, I didn’t know exactly what this day was really about.  Juneteenth commemorates the day, June 19, 1865, when General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas, to proclaim that all slaves in Texas were now free.  That day was almost two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation had freed all slaves; however, because Texas was the most remote of all the slave states,..

The Human Factor in Healthcare
A recently released 2019 survey of registered nurses shows the growing pressure faced by the millions of nurses who provide care and other services each day. The pressure is coming from three main areas: the worsening nursing shortage, the impact of changing healthcare delivery, and new technology within healthcare.

Giving Thanks for Our Relationships
After joining the Supplemental Health Care Team in early 2016, I was able to pen my first “giving thanks” blog post in November of that year. I spoke about living my life with an Attitude of Gratitude and how that fit perfectly with the amazing talent and dedication that I witnessed throughout the Supplemental Health Care team.

My SHC Story: Working for a Company that Cares
I’ve been with Supplemental Health Care since March of 2017. After leaving behind a decade long career in customer service, I was nervous that I would regret my decision to transition into healthcare staffing. But I was burned out from my previous work environments and in search of something meaningful. I was hoping I would find that at SHC.

My SHC Story: Finding My Voice
I’m from a small town in Alabama. The kind of small town that when people ask you where it is, you try to reference larger towns nearby but no one has heard of those places either. It still takes three dirt roads to get to my childhood home, and the cable company just laughs at you when you ask when high speed internet is coming.

The Season for Giving Thanks
Last year, when I penned my first blog post for Supplemental Health Care, I was fairly new to the organization, but I had a strong sense that I had joined a very special team.

And what better time to write about that than in this season of giving thanks.
