TactStaff: supporting your healthcare adventure since 1952

A photo of a medical professional jumping.As a travel nurse, your ability to be adventurous and make a real difference hinges on having a team you can count on standing behind you. But you need more from your staffing agency than logistical support.

You need a partner, an advocate you can trust. After all, the way we work together to pursue our goals is just as important as what we achieve. Are you looking for a medical staffing agency made up of experienced, dedicated professionals who share your values? Look no further.

Welcome to TactStaff. We’re here to help.

Who we are

A picture of the New York City skyline.Since our founding in 1952, medical professionals have trusted TactStaff. Today, we are a fourth-generation family business. What does that mean for you? It means you benefit from our experience, deep relationships in the field, integrity, and history.

Our professional values are also our family values. When Maurice Brown founded Tact in Manhattan over 60 years ago, he built the company on integrity. It was a quality that came naturally to Maurice. As an entrepreneur, he always strove to make his customers and staff feel comfortable.

Ever since landing on Ellis Island as a child, Maurice worked hard to define his own American Dream. Over two decades as a cinema-owner, he cultivated his ability to form trusting relationships with his community. Those skills proved essential when he changed directions and created a staffing agency.

The company began by placing blue collar workers. But everything changed one day when Maurice was contacted by a pharmacy. It was the original Duane Reade, and they needed a drug clerk on short notice. From there, Maurice (and Tact!) were drawn into the field of medical staffing. The company began providing staff to hospitals, and the rest is history.

Maurice passed his values — and his company — on to his son, Joseph, who in turn passed both to his son, Robert. Today, Robert runs the company with his son Matt, and what started at Duane Reade is now a national healthcare staffing agency.

We think Maurice would be proud.

What we do

What began over 60 years ago as a small boutique healthcare placement service is now the preeminent placement service for healthcare professionals nationwide.  

We provide highly-qualified healthcare talent to institutions around the country. We foster collaborative, long-term relationships between our healthcare clients and professionals, and our internal staff. And we work to help our medical professionals find the best career opportunities. 

At Tact, we dedicate ourselves to matching medical professionals to the right job. By doing so, we are able to meet the critical staffing needs of our healthcare clients… and help our employees find the most rewarding jobs, careers, and lifestyles at top-tier hospitals and healthcare systems.

Why we do it

Every medical professional knows the feeling of responsibility that comes with being trusted by a patient. We feel the same sense of responsibility towards our medical professionals.

Our deep respect for the resilience and empathy of those who work in the healthcare field is an inspiration for us every day. We strive to reflect those qualities — not just in our work, but in our lives.

Finally, we pride ourselves on building relationships, maintaining a diligent work ethic, and taking advantage of learning opportunities to continue developing both personally and professionally.  The next great idea could come at any time!

Today’s healthcare professionals lead busy lives. That’s why we meet you where and when it’s best for you.

You can count on TactStaff to be your partner and advocate. Why? Because our goal is the same as yours: to make it easier for you to get out there and make a real difference.
