UMMS re-opened the One UMMS Staffing Pool for per diem critical care RNs, medical surgical RNs and respiratory therapist applicants September 8.
The Staffing Pool was closed to applicants in mid-May, after more than 1,500 individuals were hired and placed in medical facilities managed by UMMS; more than 500 of those hired were clinical professionals. The System decided to re-open the pool to applicants in anticipation of increased staffing needs due to the upcoming flu season coinciding with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Staff hired as part of this wave of the One UMMS Staffing Pool will be paid starting at $60 per hour and are eligible for the UMMS Bronze Healthcare Plan. The Staffing Center is placing high priority on recruiting medical surgical, telemetry and critical care RNs with the intention of supporting staffing needs at member organizations.
UMMS first established the One UMMS Staffing Pool in late March, in response to a growing need for qualified professionals to assist us in all aspects of delivering exceptional care. Its primary goal at that time was to fulfill the staffing needs of our mission, which includes temporary COVID-19 medical sites managed by UMMS: Baltimore Convention Center Field Hospital, TRI (Triage, Respite and Isolation) Support Center at the Lord Baltimore Hotel and testing sites throughout the region. However, when possible, the staffing center has been able to fill needs identified by member organizations submitted to the Staffing Center.
