Florida Department of Health Resource Pool

Keeping Florida’s clinicians working for Florida’s patients

The COVID-19 crisis is putting a strain on the healthcare delivery network in Florida. Not just due to the increase in COVID-19 patients needing care, but because other services are being cancelled in various service sites such as hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers and physician practices. These services may have been cancelled to increase capacity for COVID-19 patients or prevent the potential spread of COVID-19. Regardless of the reason, some hospitals are desperate for staff while others do not have the volume to continue their current staffing levels leaving qualified clinicians out of work.

The Florida Department of Health Resource Pool, powered by Aya Healthcare, will help match qualified furloughed clinicians with facilities that need additional local staffing.
