Why Elwood Healthcare

Elwood Healthcare operates a “non-prescriptive” model when it comes to service design and delivery. This guarantees that you will never get an “off the shelf” response from us and so your specific services needs become the architecture of our design brief and therefore you dictate the exact nature of the underpinning service you receive. This compliments both your own visions and values, cascading a shared ethos through real partnership and collaboration, integrating new staff in as seamless a fashion as possible.

In a changing landscape Elwood Healthcare are able to protect its clients “status quo” through providing a fully flexible and fluid service portfolio which can be engaged and disengaged at will. Given our enormous catalogue of client’s, we are permanently recruiting and therefore our compliant workforce reservoir is for ever expanding. Providing diverse and layered care, training and recruitment solutions across a suite of services and disciplines, simply means that we are “uniquely” placed to provide a genuinely consultative service and an array of optional outcomes designed to meet a sensible budget.

Collaboration is an absolute tenant of our service; we invest heavily within communication and never assume anything. We are therefore never embarrassed to ask the obvious or for the obvious to be asked of ourselves. This creates a common currency of language which enables efficient fulfilment, induction and candidate attraction when promoting your service as the company of choice. We understand that initial decision to take a different route away from the comfort of familiarity, can quite often be a very daunting prospect and appear too risky? Well rest assured that you don’t have to rely on faith as Elwood Healthcare seasoned team have a pedigree built on over 3 decades of delivering “best in class” service solutions to hundreds of clients just like you.
