NOTE to RECRUITERS:

This year at North America's biggest healthcare show, Longwoods will provide all 8500 attendees with the HealthAchieve2008 Pocket Notebook. This Pocket Guide will contain important interesting information.

You can add to it. For example, tell our readers ...

  • 5 reasons why nurses, doctors and the allied professions should call you
  • fun facts about your facility
  • great moments in the history of your facility
  • the wonderful amenities and the recreational facilities in your area
  • anything else that will pique prospective employees' interest in your hospital

8500 health care providers and administrators will see it at the convention this November. And up to 250,000 will be able to read it on the Longwoods website. For more information on how to advertise in it click here (PDF)
