Choose the Industry Experts
The AGA Group™ is a healthcare service firm that provides workforce solutions in the areas of staffing, recruiting, PEO Services, Health Equity, and Professional Training and Development. With employee turnover at an all-time high, it becomes costly to have an employee leave your company. Even if they are not a good fit hiring them really costs you in areas other than their compensation. By working closely with you, we understand the challenges of retaining a productive workforce while controlling costs and remaining profitable. One of the greatest concerns of a business owner is retaining top talent while also minimizing turnover. The AGA Group™ mitigates this risk by assuming the employer’s role for one employee or an entire department. As a healthcare services firm, we will provide the recruiting, on-boarding, all of the background checks and skills test. Our PEO services assume the responsibility for payroll, insurance, workers comp, and unemployment insurance costs for every employee we manage. Our areas of support are in:
- Healthcare staffing and recruiting
- Workforce Optimization
- FQHC Healthcare Training Courses
- Professional Training and Development
- Healthcare Coverage (major medical and dental coverage)
- Skills testing for employees
- Payroll Administration
Whether you are looking for The AGA Group™ to manage an employee for six months or for a year we are ready to support your needs. As a leading healthcare recruiter, we have great relationships established with many area healthcare professionals.
Some of our clients choose to contract the employee and have us manage the costs associated with them until they are ready to make a permanent commitment. If there is turnover and a subsequent unemployment claim you are not burdened with an increase in your experience rating nor the paperwork associated with the claim. Our HR Department takes care of everything and we assume all of the responsibility for paperwork, claims, and Department of Labor responses.

Health disparities, which are sometimes referred to as health inequities, have garnered an increasing amount of attention from physicians and health policy experts, as well as a renewed focus from federal health agencies. As a complex and multi-factorial construct, differential access to medical care, treatment modalities, and disparate outcomes among various racial and ethnic groups have been validated in numerous studies. The antecedents of such differences involve such “drivers” as cost and access to the healthcare system, primary care physicians, and preventive health services.
