In 1990, Scott Erickson joined our CompHealth team in Grand Rapids, Michigan, as a jack of all trades — he was hired as a recruiting assistant, but also coordinated housing and licensing for providers going on assignment.
Now, Scott is a credentialing specialist who conducts annual audits and handles references, quality management files, and the occasional background screening for traveling occupational therapists, physical therapists, and more. And he knows his work makes a difference.
“It is important that we find providers who are strong clinically and interpersonally that match well to our open jobs,” he says. “Clients look for providers that can fit in quickly and hit the ground running. We ensure it’s a win-win situation for the client, provider, and patients they service.”
And the environment at CHG only helps Scott stay focused on that impact.
“Our culture is energetic,” he says. “The people I work with are great team players that work hard, help each other when necessary, and are happy to make a difference in our communities.”
