About Us

Interim HealthCare Inc., founded in 1966, was originally called Medical Personnel Pool. This division of Labor Pool of America was founded in 1946. The overall name was changed to Interim in 1992. The new name allowed the company to operate diverse lines of business under one banner and also more adequately reflected the services provided at that time.

In 1997, Interim HealthCare was acquired by Cornerstone Equity Investors as a spin-off from Interim. Cornerstone is a leading equity investment firm, which sponsors management buyouts of growth companies. It is based in New York City and has a long history of successful health care investments.

The separation of Interim HealthCare from Interim was pursued to enable Interim HealthCare to focus on opportunities to become a clinically and technologically advanced health care company. As an independent company, Interim HealthCare was much better positioned to accelerate its growth by providing focused clinical programs, data and information.

Today, Interim HealthCare is the nation's largest combined provider of home care and supplemental staffing. It is also the nation's oldest and most successful health care franchise organization with the average owner tenure of 18 years.

Interim HealthCare has two core businesses: home health care and health resources (staffing).

Home Care includes both skilled care and supportive services. Skilled care includes nurses, therapists and other specialized caregivers. They provide clinical intervention such as wound care, assistance with medication, improved ambulation or teaching individuals and their families self-management of their care needs. Supportive services are provided by home health aides, personal care aides, companions or homemakers and include assistance with a variety of activities of daily living including shopping, bathing, light housekeeping and companionship.

In addition, the company has expanded its presence in the marketplace by offering a variety of clinical business services including a national network for educating and training that can be easily accessed by pharmaceutical and medical device companies.

Health Resources encompass supplemental staffing and Site Solutions for health care facilities and other businesses. Supplemental staffing places nurses, therapists, other health care personnel in facilities and businesses for short-term assignments or as direct hires. Site Solutions provides a comprehensive approach to managing, measuring and increasing the performance of a facility's supplemental workforce. A Site Solution partnership improves performance, reduces costs and maximizes quality, value and return on investment.

Interim Occupational Health focuses solely on providing occupational health services to employers across the United States. This division has been in operation since 1995, providing occupational health solutions ranging from temporary staffing to full facility management.
