Welcome to rtNOW! We are the world’s first respiratory care specific telehealth solution. As an rtNOW agent, you are paving new ground in how respiratory care is delivered.
It is important to our company that our employees understand why we exist. We believe in and live our company passion, “We empower respiratory care.”
The Back Story…
Years ago, there was a staffing company called C.O.R.E. Respiratory Services. This company was owned and operated by respiratory therapists, staffed exclusively respiratory therapists, and garnered a reputation for finding and providing excellent therapists.
One day, one of the owners (Curt) was speaking with two employees in the company (Bryan and Justin). They were discussing the problem of a respiratory therapist shortage and how it affects rural communities. Out of this conversation the idea of an app to connect the army of competent respiratory therapists we had as a resource to the rural hospitals was born. It was named “rtNOW”.
C.O.R.E. Respiratory Services was acquired by Chuck Stadler in 2017 and soon thereafter merged with Vital Nurse Staffing to create CORE Staffing – a healthcare staffing company. Chuck quickly saw how unique rtNOW was, and provided a great amount of support to the company. It is currently still within the larger company of CORE Staffing, but there are plans to move it to it’s own legal entity as well.
Focusing on What is Important
The leadership team meets quarterly to determine long and short-term plans for rtNOW. We publish this information freely to our employees. It is important to us that you understand where we are going. We truly care about both people, and respiratory care, and we have a bold vision for the future.
