Founded by Ruddy Polhill and Rhonda Polhill, HCP has 41 employees and makes physician placements in 14 specialties across 24 states. The Polhills will remain with On Assignment and continue to lead the growth of HCP.
“On Assignment, and its physician staffing division, VISTA, is widely regarded as one of the leading professional staffing companies in the nation,” said Ruddy Polhill, CEO of HCP. “Rhonda and I have known the senior management team at VISTA for many years, and we are excited to become part of On Assignment.”
