Missouri Partnering with Healthcare Company to Increase Hospital Staffing

Governor Mike Parson announced this week that Missouri is partnering with Vizient, Inc. to bring more than 700 hospital staff to assist the state in combating the COVID-19 pandemic. Parson said that the Texas-based company is expected to bring 760 staff, including registered nurses, respiratory therapists, and certified nurse assistants, to increase hospital capacity in the state. The partnership will last 12 weeks, after which it will be re-evaluated. It is expected that the state will pay for at least a portion of this deal with CARES Act funding. During the announcement, Parson again encouraged Missourians to take actions to help slow the spread of the virus.
