Qualified Nurses from the Philippines


United Methodist Healthcare Recruitment (UMHR) specializes in the recruitment and placement of overseas Registered Nurses, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Medical Technologists. UMHR started operations in 2005 as a source of nurses for Wesley Place‘s skilled nursing and rehabilitation services, but has since expanded to help other nonprofits with their staffing needs. Over the past 15 years, UMHR has placed hundreds of qualified and reliable healthcare staff members.

Solving the existing and projected Nurse shortages across much of the USA will require recruiting from abroad, as supplies of US-born Nurses will not meet demand. CMSS knew this in 2005 and decided that the Philippines offered the largest opportunity for a steady supply of professionals who are grateful to work in the USA.  Since then, UMHR has built a large pipeline of qualified RNs, and has placed hundreds in many states.

UMHR has partnered with a licensed and well respected recruitment agency in Manila.  UMHR staff frequently travel to the Philippines to interview candidates and ensure that recruitment operations flow smoothly.
