My name is George Rhoades and I have been working in the Healthcare industry for the past 9 years. I have a passion for what I do and get complete satisfaction when I'm able to help someone out with the career goals. I grew up in Tucson Arizona and I'm married to my beautiful wife Brandi. We have two awesome kids (Hayden and Greysen) which keeps life fun, busy and exciting!!
I started in the industry with Maxim Healthcare as a recruiter and quickly moved up and received a promotion to Account Manager. I was with Maxim for 7 years but left Maxim to pursue a different Managerial career in the Semiconductor and Solar industries. I decided to leave the Semiconductor and Solar industries to get back into the healthcare industry which I surely missed.
I started with Concentric Healthcare back in March of 2014 as a recruiter and within this timeframe to date, I have received a promotion to become the Travel Recuitment Manager for the travel Division!

I serendipitously met George through another employee at Concentric, who gain my interest on an amazing offer in Gettysburg Pa. I quickly got to know George as he expedited ordinary procedures, in helping me to start my second travel assignment. He has guided me well through the beginning process and alerted me on all my compliance requirements. No time wasted, he follows through on all types of questions and response to concerns... this is the type of recruiter a travel nurse needs. I have to say... I was confronted with four travel recruiters, all with great offers and perks. However, George beat them all... due to his "grit" in offering the best deal, which is why chose to remain with Concentric. In order for this to be possible, it requires a recruiter to know their nurses staying power. This is Mr. George Rhoades true ability.

George is one of the most amazing recruiter. I have been doing this over 16 years and he really is the best I have worked with.
He goes out of his way to make the process as easy as possible and has even walked this techno-challenged nurse through setting up for my health benefits .
I would refer any new traveler to this recruiter.
I stumbled into travel nursing somewhat inadvertently this year while searching for new career opportunities online. Honestly, travel nursing was hardly on my radar at the time; as the wife of a firefighter/paramedic who works 60-80 hour weeks, and the mother of an energetic little boy about to celebrate his first birthday, I didn’t see how traveling could be feasible. I half heartedly entered my information into the recruiting site I was on, thinking that if had the spare time during my searching, I wouldn’t mind learning a little more about the industry. I was immediately and intensely regretting the decision to do so as I attempted to navigate my way through the applications in front of me while the barrage of texts and calls continued without pause. “No, thank you for the call, but I was only trying to view some of the opportunities on the website, I’m not interested in traveling at this time.” Five minutes into speaking with George Rhoades, I knew I wanted to work for Concentric. From that initial phone conversation to now, working my first travel assignment, he has ensured that every aspect of the process flow quickly and seamlessly. One would be hard pressed to find another individual better suited for their position and line of work than George is to his. His commitment to the success and wellbeing of the nurses he recruits is remarkable. I have yet to have even one small interaction with him during which his affable disposition and genuine good nature weren’t apparently obvious. It is easy to tell that he cares about what he does; he has gone above and beyond every expectation I had as a nurse new to traveling. Not only does his personality reflect positively on the organization, but his knowledge and expertise continue to impress. I have heard many travel nurses suggest that it is necessary to work with multiple agencies simultaneously in order to negotiate pay rate/contract details. While the barrage on my phone has slowed down, I still get a phone call or two most days from other travel nursing agencies and I kindly turn each of them down due to the fact that there is no recruiter out there who could compare. I have no doubt in my mind that George truly does have the best interest of each nurse he works with at heart. AMAZING recruiter and an AWESOME person!!!
George has been great to work with! I’m grateful for all he has done for me. He’s always available when I need him and takes care of business quickly and efficiently. Thank you George!
As a new employee with Concentric, George has been phenomenal!! He has always been available with any questions and was AWESOME with making a smooth start with Concentric. He has always been honest which has helped establish a fun and professional relationship. He knows his job well and has been an outstanding recruiter.
BEST RECRUITER I'VE HAD in any of my Travel Nurse Assignments!!
I Louethel B Campbell (MS.LU) is writing to give George the Ultimate Praise. Since I been with Concentric I can truly say I enjoy communicating with him in all that may come up in my assignment. He is so jovial and professional. Its truly hard work at SouthEast Medical, but with all that said and done if I need some advice and need to talk he is truly the best Recruiter I dealt with. Thank You George for being the BEST Recruiter I've ever had.
To Whom It May Concern,
I would like to share my appreciation for my recruiter, George Rhoades. I have been a traveler off and on since the 80's and have worked with numerous recruiters and agencies through everything from Hurricane Andrew, Nursing Strike actions to computer charting conversion contracts and I have never been more pleased with Concentric Healthcare and George.
Of all my experiences over the years I have never felt more well taken care of than I have with George. We connected because of a Nurse I met who sang his praises for getting you to working fast and sure enough, I was working less than three weeks after our first conversation.
But more important than the business expertise is the personal touch of someone who truly cares. My big brother passed away last November and I was blindsided with grief. I called George and he not only advanced a check for me but he also sent a condolence card to my 91 year old Mother. He took care of everything to the point that I was able to get through the headache of traveling across country with my son for a funeral in the middle of a travel contract without worrying about my employment status on my return.
I want everyone to know how much I appreciate his efforts to take care of the Nurses he represents! I have been recommending him to every Traveler I meet!

I have had the pleasure of working with George Rhoades for almost 2 years while I’ve contracted in California. He has always made himself available to listen to my concerns and he has earned my trust.
George rocks! My experience has been smooth as silk, no hassles, no problems. It's all good!
