The shortage of healthcare professionals in the United States is well documented. As our population continues to age, it has become extremely challenging to find all the healthcare professionals we need to provide the care that Americans need and desire.
The healthcare reform measures passed recently are expected to exacerbate that problem. Our leadership has over fifty years of combined healthcare experience and ten years experience in the recruitment of foreign health care professionals.
Therapy Services International, Inc. was established by an experienced healthcare team with expertise in the recruitment of foreign health professionals to provide unique solutions for healthcare providers that are just not able to recruit all the staff they require in their locality.
We are not a temp or staffing agency. We are professional recruiters who provide a seamless solution for facilities that are in need of Physical and Occupational Therapists and other health care professionals to serve their patients. Our leadership has over forty years experience in healthcare administration and foreign recruitment. We have an exclusive relationship with a top notch immigration attorney who is on retainer to us to serve the needs of our clients. We provide our professional and dedicated service efficiently and passionately. We have fully staffed offices in the Philippines and India to manage your recruit through every step of our accelerated process.
If you are unable to find all the Therapists you need, we can show you how our solution is a cost effective way to have a foreign therapist working full time in your facility for you in nine months or less, in most cases.

The cost to bring a recruited therapist from a foreign country to the USA involves the payment of a professional fee, various expenses to assist the healthcare professional in meeting the qualifications to obtain a visa, and airfare to the USA. The total cost is approximately $17,000.00 Seems like a tremendous amount of money until you actually examine the cost of NOT recruiting a foreign professional to meet your needs.
The following case study is from an actual employer that we helped this year:
Case Study: Chicago, Illinois. Client: Skilled Nursing/Rehab facility. In many markets today health care employers are using staffing agencies to meet their physical therapy and occupational therapy needs. One recent client was paying a staffing agency $61.00 per hour for a physical therapist to work full time in their facility. The physical therapist was being paid $33.00 by the staffing company. Through our efforts, at a one time cost of approximately $17,000 (all inclusive), they now employ their own physical therapist at $48.00 per hour, including fringe benefit costs. Their first year savings is $10,000.00. and their annual savings beginning in year 2 is $27,040.00. The savings reflected go straight to the bottom line.
It’s not just about cost savings—it is about quality of care.
