Healthcare Starz Reviews
I happily spent the last 15 years of my career in travel nursing & had the opportunity to compare multiple agencies. I worked in the States & in the Virgin Islands for Monte. I can tell you without hesitation, I would trust my kids with him. He is one of the most honest businessmen I know. It is as simple as that.
From first contact, he listens to what is important to YOU in a travel assignment.... & the things that are in his control.... like housing, salary, location: he delivers. He expects the same. If there are issues, he addresses them & no BS doublespeak when it comes to what he tells you his role is. In short, he walks the talk.
I have referred many friends to Monte over the years especially 1st time travelers! & guess what? They are still my friends ;)
I just retired from 40 years in ER Nursing. (Still feels strange to say that). I've known Monte for 15 years. I think the old saying "Truth stands the test of time" could be applied here.
Thank you Monte, for some AMAZING travel gig adventures!!!
Feel free to email me. Travel nurse stories are the best!!!
I'm new to the travel industry and am on my second assignment. Monte Kasten of Healthcare Starz came highly recommended to me from an RN on my first assignment. I can't say enough about Monte! Choosing Monte Kasten with Healthcare Starz was by far the best decision I could have made. Monte is a true professional in this industry and was able to get me the exact assignment that I was looking for! Monte goes above & beyond to get his clients the best rates, accommodations, and contracts based on one's particular skill set. I've talked to many different recruiters in the industry and I've found personally that Monte isn't just another recruiter out to meet a quota. Monte is the "real deal" and cares about my personal needs and circumstances. If you want a recruiter who really takes a personal interest and one that you can trust, it would be Monte Kasten. Monte is a good Christian man whom I've found that I can trust that he will do everything he can for me, and I've found that this is a man whom I can call my friend! How many recruiters out there in this industry would take their own personal time to talk to you beyond regular work hours even late at night to discuss any professional or personal concerns you have? Monte Kasten is not just another healthcare recruiter. He cares about his people and he means a great deal to me!
Monte at Healthcarestarz is amazing!
Came highly recommended and he has lived up to all my expectations. After interviewing multiple companies, Healthcare starz was hands down the only choice. Monte is knowledgeable, trustworthy, and caring. He takes the time to get to know his travelers, to find them the best positions with the best compensation. He is easy to contact and goes the extra mile for his staff. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Monte and Healthcare Starz!!
Thank you Monte for all you do for us!
It took Monte 3 yrs of calls for us to finally get the chance to work together on a travel assignment. Monte does what he say's he will do and he has been available when I needed him. I feel that I have found not only a partner for traveling but also a friend. I would recommend to anyone from 1st timer to veteran traveler that Monte will do his best to make the experience as smooth and rewarding as possible.
Thanks Monte for your time!
I have been an RN for longer than I care to remember. Besides having nursed in South Africa, the UK , Israel and all over the USA with many different recruiting companies in the US, I found that many companies offer an array of enticing benefits etc. The test of a really good recruiting company is when things go belly up whether they will back you up. Monte and I go back a long way. He saw me through some difficult times and gave me the benefit of the doubt. There is no other company that will go the extra mile to support you. Monte and Todd epitomize professionalism and integrity -something which is often very hard to find in the industry. There are many travel companies out there, so be careful. You want to find a company that has your back - no matter what. It is reassuring to know that wherever your travel assignment is, Monte is just a phone call away and that is something you cannot put a dollar value on!
I have been a RN for 25+ years. I have traveled with Monte for 10+ years on and off. Monte has always been very trustworthy to always take care of his RN's. Healthcare Starz always works hard to find the assignment you want and does not change the game plan in the last hour of negotiations. He genuinely cares about the people he works with.
I've worked exclusively with Monte Kasten a number of times. Compared to other agencies that I've worked with there is none better than Monte. He always tells the truth and has the best benefits. As far as I'm concerned there is no one better.
Monte was the first travel company I traveled with- I wanted to go to the Virgin Islands but he wisely advised me to get a "traveler's skin" first- I quickly learned what he meant and have always been thankful he directed me elsewhere for my first travel assignment. After several contracts with him, Monte advised me to get telemetry certified and provided a position where I could do an internship thus making me more marketable- Monte has always been a man of his word and worked to get me the best pay possible. When a hospital in Florida suddenly let over 200 travelers go with only 2 weeks warning- he had me another job within 4 days very close by- Monte has always given all benefits as promised- unlike another travel company I once tried- After I had to stop traveling to care for my mom- Monte still called just to check on me! I tell everyone I meet that is interested in doing travel nursing to call Monte first- you won't find a better company to work for!!

Good Day Everyone:
If you are new as a traveler RN or and experienced traveler RN; Monte will match your dreams, ambitions and experience to the best location and facility. He has contacts all over the world to satisfy your bucket list as a traveler RN. I have worked for and been in contact with Monte for 10+ years. He's like your best friend who you haven't been in touch with for awhile; you just pick up where you left off! There are a ton of travel RN recruiters out there, be an educated traveler, interview them!!!!
I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience working with Healthcare Starz over the past year! Monte Kasten has been incredibly professional and efficient in connecting me with awesome assignments and following up throughout the process. Monte is reliable, patient, thoughtful, personable and always works hard to find the best options to match your individual needs, interests and skill set. I began working with Healthcare Starz following the recommendation of a friend. In turn, I would also absolutely recommend healthcare Starz to friends and colleagues in healthcare!
Monte is truly the best!! He made me and my family feel valued before, during and after my assignments. Monte brings quality, competent and ethical business practices to his clients. It's a pleasure working for him and being his friend
Monte and Todd were awesome . I used them years ago and went to St. thomas. They knew the area , kept me well informed, checked in with me frequently and answered any and all questions.
I have worked with Monte Kasten on and off for the last 12 years. He has always treated me with respect and as a professional. Great communication and follow through. I know I can always count on Healthcare Starz to meet and/or exceed my needs and travel desires. I highly recommend Monte and Healthcare Starz!
I have had the privilege of working with Monte for 6+ years. The process of picking an agent is challenging as you would like to partner up with someone who has your interests foremost. Right from the starting process of talking with several agents, trying to decide whom to go with, all I had to go on was Monte's initial phone call. He came forth with a caring tone and a willingness to help me. We have never had a negative interaction with our relationship and he worked to get me good assignments based on the criteria I gave him. He has always been accessible and timely in his efforts being sure all went well from the start and he followed up through each assignment. All that he said he would do got done and was done well. I have never felt a need to look elsewhere for a travel agent. I would highly recommend him, and I have, to any therapist or nurse looking for an agent they can trust and enjoy working with.
I have traveled with Healthcare Starz for many assignments and have always been more than satisfied with services provided by them. They screen the assignments before they are offered so that my needs are met. I am always contacted frequently during the assignment to ensure that all promises are being kept. If there is a problem, it is handled promptly and efficiently. I would recommend this company completely for first time travelers and for seasoned travelers who are getting tired of all hype and no substance.
I have been a RN for over 22 years but am new to traveling as a RN. Healthcare Starz has been amazing to work with. Monte Kasten is an amazing recruiter who really works with prospective clients to get the best rates, compensation, and pay for healthcare professionals. I feel truly blessed to work with a great company as Healthcare Starz.
