PARK CITY, UTAH (February 11, 2016) /PRNewswire/ -- Supplemental Health Care announced today it has partnered with The Vistria Group, a Chicago-based private investment firm.
Longtime staffing industry leaders and Vistria operating partners, Greg Palmer and Ron Malone, will serve on Supplemental Health Care's Board of Directors as chairperson and vice-chairperson, respectively. Palmer, the former CEO of RemedyTemp Inc., has 30 years of experience in the staffing industry. Malone, the former chairperson & CEO of Gentiva Health Services, has 30 years of experience in staffing and home health care. Janet Elkin, who has served as Supplemental Health Care's CEO since 2010, and the company's existing leadership team will continue to operate and manage the company.
"Janet and her team have built a tremendous platform that is well-positioned to help healthcare providers meet the challenges of recruiting and retaining high-quality clinical staff in this supply-constrained environment," said Vistria's Amy Christensen, who also will join the board of Supplemental Health Care. "We are very excited about the growth opportunities ahead, particularly in providing healthcare staffing for school districts."
