History

Jackson Healthcare was founded by our Chairman and CEO Rick Jackson and began based on a simple principle — that talented professionals with a shared purpose can improve the lives of patients, families, communities and each other. Over the past two decades, we’ve expanded through a blend of acquisition and organic growth. Today, our family of companies includes 15 businesses that are leaders in their markets and trusted partners to those they serve.

The year 2000 marked the start of Jackson Healthcare. LocumTenens.com, Premier Anesthesia and what is today known as Jackson Physician Search became our first healthcare staffing and search brands. The business continued to grow with the additions of Jackson & Coker Locum Tenens, Jackson Nurse Professionals, Jackson Therapy Partners and Parker Staffing. We then launched Care Logistics. By 2007, our family of companies covered an array of high-growth, rapid-evolving markets, including locums, permanent physician, and allied health staffing; anesthesia management; and technology.

We further expanded our footprint in allied health with the launch of Jackson Pharmacy Professionals and then introduced VirtualMed Staff, an innovative telemedicine business. With our acquisitions of Tyler & Company (now part of Kirby Bates Associates) and Sullivan Healthcare Consulting, we extended our strength in healthcare executive search and brought workforce and leadership consulting to our collective offerings. We then launched Healthcare Workforce Logistics, adding managed service programs (MSP) and vendor management system (VMS) solutions. The acquisitions of Kirby Bates Associates and Avant Healthcare Professionals furthered our strength in healthcare executive and workforce and leadership consulting, and in nurse and allied health solutions. USAntibiotics, the country’s only manufacturer of Amoxicillin, marks the newest addition to our family of companies.
