We don’t want to be the biggest, we just want to be the best.

Maxim Healthcare Staffing has been an industry leader for over thirty years. In 1988, Jim Davis and Steve Biscotti opened our first office in Towson, Maryland to provide healthcare organizations with qualified candidates during a nationwide nursing shortage. Following the launch of our home healthcare division and opening new offices in 1989, the business flourished.

After being certified by the Joint Commission in 1996 and achieving accreditation from the Accreditation Commission for Health Care in 2007, Maxim grew to become one of the largest healthcare staffing companies in the US. We’ve expanded our offices into 32 states, and have since been honored with multiple Health Ethics Trust Compliance Best Practice awards.

In 2022, in order to better serve our communities, Maxim Staffing split from our home healthcare division. We are proud to offer a number of services to our clients and continue to build meaningful relationships with our healthcare professionals.

Since 2010, Maxim Staffing has seized opportunities to grow and establish our footing as a trusted organization. Our approach to support a national footprint with a local presence allowed us to more greatly impact and better respond to our community’s needs.

Maxim’s expanding clinical team is a powerful force in the success of our business. While developing training programs for education modalities, nurses, and clinicians, they continuously bring valuable research and awareness to our company, with the goal of supporting Maxim, our healthcare professionals, and our clients. New courses and foundational programs supported by our Training and Development team serve as a backbone for our employees’ success, while our Center of Excellence serves as a hub between Field Support, Recruiters, and Business Development managers- allowing collaboration on finding novel ways to maximize growth potential while keeping up with continuous improvement initiatives.

By dedicating ourselves to the highest standards of quality, we can fulfill our goal of serving our clients and candidates, and connecting them to work that matters.

Maxim Staffing has also been a catalyst for career growth. Embracing change and adopting a promote-from-within culture has opened doors to numerous career advancement opportunities for both employees and healthcare professionals.

One of the keys our continued success over the years is creating an environment where every voice is heard. Initiatives such as our Diversity Equity and Inclusion Board with employee affinity groups like Multicultural, Pride, and Women in Leadership ensure that all team members feel valued and a part of a work environment that consists of mutual trust and respect. Fostering a workplace where people bring their different experiences to drive our mission and vision is the core of what makes Maxim Staffing so unique. Above all, our continuing commitment to our people benefits our team members, clients, and customers.

We believe that no matter the changes in the healthcare marketplace, we will always lead with our people.

From mailing and filing paper timecards, to physically handing candidate profiles to employers, we’ve come a long way to automate our process and make information accessible to everyone.  Maxim Staffing is committed to embracing modern strategies while developing technologies to provide efficient, effective solutions for our clients and healthcare professionals. Our suite of technology-driven products like MaxView, Timeclock, and our MSP partner Sunburst Workforce Advisors have been built in short time frames, allowing us to quickly alleviate stress for our clients, and streamline the recruitment process.

We understand that creating meaningful relationships with customers and healthcare professionals are key when it comes to providing long-lasting solutions. Recently, we launched our own career site designed specifically for quick screening and onboarding, so candidates can get connected with a recruiter and started on their career path right away.

Our goal is to continue innovating efficiently while keeping the human connection still intact- enhancing the experience of those working closely with us, to ensure everyone is meeting their goals.
