Frequently Asked Questions at HealthCare Services in Charlotte, NC
My medical facility often needs staff on short notice. Could ATC Healthcare Services provide me with staff quickly?
ATC Healthcare Services has staffing consultants on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to ensure that you are always able to reach someone to discuss your medical staffing needs.
My organization feels that it is too costly to hire an outside staffing company. Are there cost benefits to using ATC Healthcare Services?
ATC Healthcare Services employs cost effective strategies that generate a return on investment for our clients. The medical facilities that we staff have saved thousands of dollars every year by eliminating recruitment fees from their budget. These fees include placing advertisements and valuable time spent reviewing resumes and interviewing candidates. Further the time we devote to ensuring candidates are well-qualified, credentialed and payrolled, generates opportunities to spend your days on what you do best taking care of your patients.
Can I interview potential candidates?
Yes. For direct hires, we arrange a telephone interview followed by a personal interview between you and the prospective employee. For travel contract staff, we arrange telephone interviews. Whether travel, direct hire or temporary staff, we interview and screen each healthcare professional to determine that he or she meets our high clinical, professional and personal standards.
What quality assurance measures does ATC Healthcare follow?

Will someone from ATC Healthcare be available around the clock?
We’re here for you, every hour of every day (even holidays!), with no exceptions. Our staff is available in the office from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. After hours staffing coordinators handle orders or customer service calls at other times.
Why should I work with a staffing firm?
Typically staffing firm employees earn more money than with traditional employment. There are also many other employment advantages, like being in control of your own schedule, and working as often or as infrequently as you want. You also can gain clinical experience in a variety of settings. Another nice advantage is that you can pick up per diem shifts to supplement a full time job.
Why should I work with ATC Healthcare Services rather than another staffing firm?
ATC Healthcare has over 30 years of medical staffing experience. We understand your needs and know your challenges. We pride ourselves on giving you outstanding support, helping to ensure your goals are met. From the best benefits for you and your family, to competitive pay and personalized care, we want to be the only staffing agency you’ll ever need.
Why should I work with ATC Healthcare Services rather than directly for a medical facility?
In short, the answer is flexibility. When you work with ATC Healthcare Services, you have the option to work per diem shifts, take a local contract that’s four weeks or more, or explore the country with a travel assignment. Plus, you get to choose when and where you want to work. And as an ATC Healthcare Associate, you’ll earn some of the highest pay rates in the industry and receive excellent benefits. So the question becomes, why would you want to work with anyone else?
