FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Drew Haig
(PHILADELPHIA, PA) – Go4, a nation-wide platform for hiring per diem healthcare providers, has hired Kim DeLaney, RN, BSN as a Nursing Advisor. DeLaney will join forces with RN Community Manager Amanda Kammes, MSN, BSN, RN to expand the Nursing division. DeLaney has over two-decades of experience navigating the world of Human Resources, most recently as the Director of Enterprise Talent Acquisition at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).
Since 2017, Go4, formerly Go4Ellis, has been the leading marketing place for per diem work among athletic trainers, serving as the National Athletic Trainers’ Association’s preferred per diem partner. The app-based platform allows healthcare providers to connect with short and long-term jobs, as well as gain access to a community of peers and educational resources.
In November of 2021, Go4 launched a Registered Nursing division after initial success was seen in a small sample of nurses previously engaged to staff NCAA COVID-19 testing protocols in the spring of that year.
Kim DeLaney is a proven entity in the nursing and recruiting world. After spending 15 years as a staff nurse at CHOP, Kim helped elevate the talented nursing staff at CHOP, the first hospital to specialize exclusively in pediatric medicine, and now a world-renowned network of hospitals setting the standard in children’s patient care.
Over the next 20 years, DeLaney worked her way up to a leadership position, earning the Director of Enterprise Talent Acquisition title in 2016. While leading the TA function and a talented team of HR recruiters she was dedicated to optimizing the Talent Acquisition Experience. DeLaney was also brought in to assist with C-suite hires and was a sought-after career coach for the entire network.
“Kim is a colleague that makes an instant impact here at Go4. Expanding to provide connections for a new Healthcare Provider (registered nurses) has its challenges, but Kim’s experience and connections help bridge any transitional gaps. We have years of success in the per diem athletic trainers sphere, and we’re excited to have that same impact for nurses. Per diem jobs that meet their pay-rate and schedule needs, right on an app. This is where healthcare is going. And Kim is helping us get there with nurses!” said Andy Hayes, CEO of Go4.
At Go4, Kim will take her recruiting experience to the world of per diem positions, focusing on recruiting nurses who are looking to gain experience in jobs outside of the acute care hospital setting. To do this, she will create a community where nurses can network, support and interact with one another in a dependable environment. With nurses leaving the hospital setting in droves following unsustainable working conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic, DeLaney knows this is the perfect time to provide an option to pivot, rather than leave, the nursing profession.
“A platform like Go4 provides a nurse with options in a non acute hospital/ inpatient setting,” said Kim DeLaney. “Whether it’s a nurse towards the later part of their journey who wants to create an exit strategy, a student nurse who is already an RN but continuing their education for a masters or doctoral degree, or a travel RN who has a break between travel assignments and wants to pick up per diem shifts, the Go4 app provides options and opportunities that match a nurses skillset, experience and interests. Nurses are needed in the non acute care hospital settings, such as camps, schools, outpatient settings, research and more. I couldn’t be more excited to join this creative solution. There is great potential and benefits for nurses and employers; this is part of the future for healthcare . . . the way you hire and get hired!”
