Largest hospital in the state adopts CareRev’s technology platform to connect with local talent
PARAMUS, N.J. – (October 25, 2022) – Bergen New Bridge Medical Center, New Jersey’s largest hospital and a clinical affiliate of Rutgers, announced a partnership with CareRev, a technology platform that connects hospitals and health systems with local nurses and other healthcare professionals. With CareRev, Bergen New Bridge can identify and hire local qualified nurses, certified nursing assistants, and technicians per diem to accommodate fluctuating patient volumes and fill in gaps to support the hospital’s full-time staff.
“CareRev’s technology allows us to build relationships with talent in our own backyard, while adding additional support for our full-time staff which is critical following the last few years of the pandemic,” said Deborah Visconi, President and CEO, Bergen New Bridge Medical Center (BNBMC). “This partnership forges a new industry standard benefiting healthcare facilities and workers at a time when Bergen New Bridge Medical Center celebrates our fifth anniversary and reflects on our transformational journey.”
CareRev works with hospitals and health systems throughout the country who need a ready supply of labor to support their existing workforce. These facilities are willing to meet the needs of today’s healthcare workforce, many of whom are looking for more flexible schedules. Credentialed healthcare professionals in New Jersey will soon be able to use the CareRev app to find and book shifts to work when and where they want, without committing to a minimum or maximum number of shifts.
According to the National Health Resources and Services Administration, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, by 2030, New Jersey will face a nursing shortage of 11,400 nurses. While facilities across the United States continue to struggle with healthcare staffing, CareRev’s scalable platform mitigates staffing issues by connecting healthcare facilities directly to local, pre-qualified healthcare professionals, eliminating third-parties and streamlining the hiring process by automating and simplifying the credentialing and onboarding processes.
BNBMC partners with the New Jersey Innovation Institute (NJII) as part of a network of collaborators and innovators who have a long history of identifying and implementing solutions to improve New Jersey's patient outcomes. NJII facilitated the introduction of BNBMC to CareRev to help support their long-term workforce strategy.
“Bergen New Bridge Medical Center’s adoption of CareRev’s technology will strengthen the facility with access to an adaptable, highly skilled workforce and helps keep healthcare local by recruiting directly from our own communities,” said Jennifer D’Angelo, SVP & General Manager, Healthcare Division, New Jersey Innovation Institute.
“This partnership is about Bergen County healthcare professionals helping patients in their community. Bergen New Bridge Medical Center is paving the way with a new approach to healthcare staffing,” said Will Patterson, Founder and CEO of CareRev, and former ICU nurse. “We are thrilled to launch in New Jersey at the state’s largest hospital. The impact of this partnership extends far past the walls of this facility and will shape a new status quo for healthcare workers across the state.”
