The Story Behind Heroes for Healthcare and Founder, Laura Hanoski
Laura Hanoski’s passion for healthcare and people started in middle school when she became a candy stripper at a local hospital. She knew she wanted to devote her life to helping people. Laura went into nursing school after high school and spent six years at Aurora St. Luke’s and six years at Sports Medicine and Knee Surgery Center.
Laura was blessed to find a husband to be her partner in life and in business. Fifteen years ago they started Premier Medical Staffing Services. Premier is an industry leading staffing firm with a national presence. Premier Medical Staffing Services proudly supports our Federal Medical institutions with staffing support as well as offer job opportunities to our military spouses through the MSEP program (Military Spouse Employment Program).
While working with the Department of Defense and Veteran facilities over the past several years she discovered that having a health care job in the service does not get you a health care job in the civilian world. Licensures and certifications do not match up. While organizations want to employ these talented and skilled men and woman Laura has realized they can’t unless they are compliant, this is where the “Gap” is. So, Laura and Heroes for Healthcare is dedicated to bridging that “Gap” to support our veterans and to help them obtain gainful employment in healthcare.
