Where hospitals are offering internal travel programs

Many hospitals and health systems turned to third-party staffing agencies during the COVID-19 pandemic to address shortages of clinicians and other healthcare professionals. Now a growing number of organizations are offering internal travel programs amid an opportunity to attract workers while decreasing contract labor expenses.

To determine organizations offering internal travel programs, nurse.org verified programs with hospital representatives.

The list includes large health systems beginning to launch programs in multiple states and geographical areas, such as Chesterfield, Mo.-based Mercy (program piloted in Springfield, Mo.); Altamonte Springs, Fla.-based AdventHealth; Aurora, Colo.-based UCHealth; Livonia, Mich.-based Trinity Health; Omaha, Neb.-based CHI Health; and Peoria, Ill.-based OSF HealthCare.

Here is a list of organizations offering internal travel programs, by state, per nurse.org:
