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.
