WHO WE ARE

We specialize in providing medical staffing services to home health agencies. In addition, we offer placement for temporary and permanent positions within rehab facilities and hospitals as well.

OUR HISTORY

Sterling Staffing Solutions was founded by twin brothers who both served in the US Army and fought for our country in Operation Desert Storm, Freedom and supported other tours of duty. Raised by a single mother, they know struggle and how to stretch the pennies.

Sterling Staffing Solutions started in the Fall of 2011 with one physical therapist, our co-founder Dr. Sterling L. Carter. We began with one home health agency client contract for services and serviced 2 patients twice a week for our first month on the southwest side of Houston…a grand total of 16 visits.

Over the course of the last 5 years, Sterling Staffing Solutions worked to establish itself as staffing powerhouse! In 2016, we heavily invested in developing our own communications and content management software that would allow our staff to communicate seamlessly and more efficiently than our competition. We decreased the time required to supply our clients with quality staff to 1/10th of our competitors’ response time. At the same time, our new processes allowed us to operate virtually in multiple cities without the need to establish a physical presence in those cities.

2016 ACCOMPLISHMENTS

In December 2016, Sterling Staffing Solutions completed over 4,500 rehabilitative visits from the meager 16 visits in September 2011. Expanding from just providing physical therapy to the provision of occupational therapy, speech therapy, social worker services, skilled nursing as well as dietary services. We now operate in Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, Tulsa, and Oklahoma City with plans to expand in to Austin, San Antonio and Indianapolis within the next 60-90 days. Sterling Staffing Solutions services 275 clients which includes home health agencies, hospices, rehab hospitals and outpatient therapy clinics.
