MedBest Reaches Coast to Coast


MedBest is a nationwide senior care recruiting firm with 85 years of combined experience in the long-term care industry.

Your business has been our business for decades. Established in 2001, MedBest specializes in securing quality talent for senior care companies across the United States.

MedBest has a full time research team.

No one understands the pressure that senior care companies are under to maintain quality care more than MedBest. Our CEO and recruiters have extensive backgrounds in senior care. Unlike most executive search firms, MedBest has a full time research team. And because our staff has worked in the same industry as our clients and candidates, we have built strong relationships with senior care board members and executives across the United States.

MedBest recruiting fees provided by clients, not candidates.

MedBest recruiters are relentless – reaching far beyond the typical recruiting process. With baby boomers entering long-term care at record rates, staffing has become increasingly competitive. Here at MedBest, we understand the importance of retaining top talent and believe a company’s success is created through established, dependable and committed employees. The MedBest focus always remains on the long-term success of our client and candidate, versus profiting from a numbers game. This is why our statistics boast an above average nationwide placement rate. Please see our industry rankings in the box to the left.

MedBest-Icons-01Why is MedBest an industry leader in successful senior care recruiting?

Our executives have spent decades running senior care facilities before forming MedBest. During our time in your shoes, we realized the lack of excellent recruiting support. We witnessed recruiters consistently missing important details crucial to a successful match. After years of frustration with the hiring process, our founder Julie Rupenski, once a Nursing Home Administrator of the Year for the southeast region, decided to fix the problem and change the senior care recruiting world by starting Medbest.

We place candidates trying to locate C-Suite, and mid to senior level positions on our 24-hour nationwide job board.

MedBest-Icons-03How does MedBest save you money and time?

Senior care facilities must fill their highly specialized positions quickly and efficiently. As former executives, MedBest recruiters have witnessed how open positions can cost a company a tremendous amount of capital. And our experienced staff understands senior care companies are specialized. Searching through resumes and interviewing for a successful hire takes valuable time. Our experts are “senior care matchmakers.” We do the legwork and you reap the benefits of the perfect candidate for long-term success.

MedBest-Icons-04What is our reputation?

The MedBest Senior Care recruiting firm is selective with its candidates. Although we are a nationwide recruiting firm, we focus on quality not quantity.
