Immediate Respiratory Staffers is the largest most-respected temporary staffing agency in Arizona, and the largest 'respiratory-only' agency in the nation!  Founded in 1986 in Phoenix, Arizona, and still owned and operated by its original founder, Mark Finkelstein, CRT, IRS was the second for-profit respiratory-specific agency operating in the State, and the only respiratory-only agency still operating today!  In fact, IRS's market share typically exceeds 70% of all outsourced respiratory care in its home area.

We are fastly becoming the premier world-wide provider specializing in respiratory practitioners, and for good reason.  We bring over fourteen years of per-diem and contracted staffing experience with an impeccable record.  With over two hundred employees carefully matched to each facility's needs, our clients have been enjoying fill-rates of over 98% with top notch providers, even in the busiest of winter seasons!

IRS contracts with hospitals and other medical facilities which demand that we meet the same tough JCAHO standards as they do.  And, because we have to have our programs streamlined and ready to meet such a wide variety of nuances within each hospital, our standards often exceed those of individual agencies we serve!

As part of the complete documentation package given to each account, we ensure that this completed paperwork is at the facility long before the practitioner arrives.

IRS was founded upon the philosophy that you should focus on one specialty and do it better than anyone else.  So, while several companies focus on nursing or other ancillary specialties and add a few RCP offerings to add incremental business, we stay focused on just respiratory, which is why we have been voted the best by every survey given to those who have utilized our services...
