Gifted Healthcare in New Orleans has acquired Therapia Staffing, a nationwide educational, nursing and allied staffing company based in Coral Springs, Florida.
Combining the companies allows Gifted to expand geographically and to provide clinicians with a broader selection of clinical opportunities and specialties, including school-based nursing and therapy, and physical, speech and occupational therapy, officials said. The price and terms were not disclosed.
Gifted, a nurse-owned and -operated company that started in 2006 as a local nurse staffing company, offers per diem and travel nursing assignments across the nation, with government contracts, as well as a focus on long-term acute care.
Therapia works with medical and educational facility partners to offer contract nursing and allied staffing temp relief and permanent hiring assistance.
“By acquiring Therapia Staffing, we join our team of experts with theirs, thus creating a larger platform to bring about fresh perspectives and ideas,” said Dennis Ducham, president of Gifted Healthcare.
