Our Philosophy

Taken together, the Med-X team has decades of experience in both healthcare and healthcare staffing. That's just one of the reasons we're the leader in medical job placement in Portland, Oregon, and the surrounding metro areas. 

We take great pride in building long-term relationships with our customers, which allows us to serve their needs even better as the years go on. Contact us today to learn how we can help your clinic meet its staffing needs.  

Our Philosophy

We serve two customers: medical clinics and the medical personnel that we hire and place. We approach all our relationships with these guiding principles:

Serve With Integrity: We are passionate about becoming your service provider of choice. We do this by keeping our promises and doing business the right way.
Serve With a Personal Touch: We believe all of our customers are unique, so we adapt our services to wow them.
Serve with Respect: We are inclusive and collaborative, and Med-X is a place where individuals with diverse backgrounds and talents can contribute and grow.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I have already heard back about the internship I applied through Med-X Staffing, that's the fastest job reply I've ever gotten and it's so much better than waiting weeks to hear back.

Karen, CMPE

I’ll make this quick and easy…you have truly outdone yourself on this one. I can’t imagine a more compatible addition to our staff, and we just completed an excellent 3 month stretch which I partially attribute to having her improve our overall operations. She is a just really a neat person and blends in perfectly with our team.

Scot, MD

My current experience with Med-X Staffing  has been nothing but professional, accurate,  and satisfying to both myself and to the client I am working with

Patrick, Clinic Administrator

The days spent managing healthcare practices can be exhausting.  We must rely on proven resources we can trust.  I have known Paula Purdy for 30ish years and I know without a doubt she is there for me.  I rely on her expertise to help fill open positions in our practice and almost as importantly, I rely on her for my own personal/professional support.  A relationship that will last  a lifetime.  To say Paula is trustworthy understates her integrity.

Kathy, Clinic Administrator

I have worked with Med-X Staffing since its conception. Paula is professional, transparent, kind and responsive. The candidates she sends us are appropriate for the positions and we have found four (4) well qualified staff with her assistance.  Paula has taken time to learn about our practice and its unique needs as well as our desires. I would definitely recommend using Med-X Staffing.

Victoria, Clinic Manager

I am beyond grateful for your work to help me find employment and the support to make a decision that was right for me and my family. I couldn’t be happier with the new clinic.

Carissa G. MA

Paula found a perfect match for me not once, but twice. Paula works incredibly hard, listens closely, and asks just the right questions to find you the perfect job. Paula is also incredibly dedicated to the facilities that need her services. Thank you, Med - X for opening up the next chapter in my career!
