About us

We are a group of people passionate about changing the way we do clinical staffing. Our team contains a unique mix of clinical, workforce management, financial and technology expertise.

We were born out of a Navicent Health employee’s idea for an industry led solution to the staffing problems she was seeing each day. Flex Health is the manifestation of that vision and has been formed as a joint venture between Navicent Health and leading healthcare innovators, Fitzroy Health.
