From our office in lower Queen Anne, we have a 180-degree view of Elliot Bay and an unbeatable office culture. It’s from this rad view that we specialize in per diem staffing, contract assignments, travel nursing, contract-to-hire, and direct hire placements to nursing and allied healthcare professionals.

Ryan Skjonsberg and Adam McKinnon started Axis Medical Staffing back in 2004 in an executive suite that measured just 10×10. The two entrepreneurs saw the opportunity to run a company differently than other agencies at the time. When needs came in, Adam and Ryan would run to the fax (yes, the facsimile) and send nurses’ availability to the hospitals. We were putting in the legwork other agencies weren’t. They visited facilities to ensure they always had what they needed (including the occasional snack).

The first shift booked and worked was on Christmas day, 2004. Today, we’re one of the fastest-growing companies in Washington and we’ll put in that same legwork — and more — no matter what day it is.
