GetMed Staffing Launches Allied Division

Feb 21, 2023

The GetMed Staffing team is growing again! We’re excited to announce the addition of an Allied Division to our staffing services. What is the difference between a travel nurse and an allied traveler? Below, we’ll do a brief walkthrough of who will oversee the division, what modalities are included in our Allied Division,  and the benefits of becoming an Allied traveler.


Meet GetMed’s Allied Division Manager: Jes Thieschafer

Jes has become a vibrant part of our team, utilizing her eight years of experience in various healthcare staffing roles to carry her core-value-and-community-centric leadership style into our new division.

“I am beyond excited and blessed to be building the Allied team and finding the best travelers who want to join GetMed and be part of something extraordinary. We are passionate about our travelers and ensuring they have the best travel experience. We are building with phenomenal Recruiters, ones who have your best interest at heart and excitement towards your travels. We aim to create relationships that will last a lifetime, and GetMed is where it all starts!”

“Jes is exactly the person to head this department,” says agency founder, Linda Hotchkiss. “Her spark is the introduction to GetMed that we want all our travelers to experience. I’m confident that the Allied division is in the right hands for building a team of advocates that support our perspective towards healthcare.”


What specialties are included in GetMed’s Allied Division?

Allied health professionals make up more than half of the healthcare workforce in the U.S. They are involved with delivering health or related services associated with identifying, evaluating, and preventing diseases and disorders and rehabilitation, among others.

Allied modalities in the division include:

  • Lab: (MLT, MT/CLS, HT/HTL, Cytotechnologist, Pathologist Assistant, Phlebotomist)
  • Radiology: (Rad Tech, CT Tech, MRI Tech, Dosimetrist, Mammography Tech; Ultrasound (General, Echo and Vascular))
  • Therapy: (PT, PTA, OT, COTA, SLP)
  • Cardiopulmonary: (RRT, CRT, EEG Tech, EKG Tech, Polysomnography)


Benefits of becoming an Allied health traveler

Allied health career benefits include the diversity of roles available within the profession. Depending on the role, your work environment may be more comprehensive than healthcare facilities. You can also select a career path with direct patient contact or indirect care roles.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that employment within healthcare occupations, generally, is projected to grow 16% from 2020 to 2030. The BLS also projects that the industry will add about 2.6 million new jobs during the next decade.

Advantages of working with GetMed Staffing

GetMed understands how vital the relationship is between a traveler and their recruiter. The needs of our healthcare travelers vary, and therefore we know that a one-size-fits-all solution won’t cut it. Nor should it. We tailor our expertise to our travelers’ experiences to reduce the stress these processes chave on everyone involved.
