"When I co-founded Cross Country more than 30 years ago, it was on the premise of delivering a best-in-class experience for our clients and healthcare professionals, and this remains our number one priority today," said Kevin Clark, president and CEO of Cross Country Healthcare. "At the end of the day, it is all about delivering an unmatched experience for the healthcare professionals and organizations we serve.  As we look to capitalize on the dynamic changes and disruptions in the healthcare sector, our new, integrated brand structure better represents our holistic approach to providing innovative technology and high quality personnel solutions that are cost effective and customized to meet the unique and complex needs of our candidates and clients."    

The company has also merged its signature travel nurse brands – Cross Country TravCorps, MedStaff and Medical Staffing Network Travel – under the new Cross Country Nurses brand, which was the original company brand launched in 1986. The consolidation leverages the strength of each brand to offer travel nurses greater access to a national team of recruiters who serve as career advisors, securing professional opportunities for candidates at any of the more than 2,500 healthcare facilities who partner with Cross Country Nurses nationwide. To support the brand consolidation and properly reflect the services provided, the new, enhanced Cross Country Nurses website is aimed at delivering a seamless job search and candidate experience.

Cross Country Healthcare's Workforce Solutions division, which provides strategic talent management solutions for its clients, is also part of the corporate rebrand and new corporate Cross Country Healthcare website.  A recognized market leader, Cross Country Workforce Solutions' tailored strategies, systems and resources assist healthcare organizations address labor-related challenges by delivering cost effective outcomes and placing highly qualified professionals across their continuum of care.  Among the solutions offered include managed services programs (MSPs), internal resource pools (IRPs), electronic medical record (EMR) transition staffing, recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) and other consultative services.

Cross Country Healthcare's allied health staffing division, which is retaining its Cross Country Allied name, has also been rebranded to align with the new corporate brand identity and has rolled out an updated, candidate-centric website. The company plans to announce several additional brand consolidations and updates in the coming months.

"As our business model has evolved to better meet the shifting needs of our clients and healthcare professionals, we needed to move towards a master brand strategy and simplified architecture across our divisions," said Kip Havel, chief marketing officer of Cross Country Healthcare. "Through our new brand voice and visual identity, we're better able to articulate the scope of the company's solutions, innovative capabilities and quality services that Cross Country Healthcare has always been known for, while reflecting a new chapter, culture and values for the organization."
