Success Stories 

We had been looking for a solution to help us transition our paper application for our clinical levels program to an online platform.  StaffGarden has been our solution!  It has been a pleasure to work with their team.  They have been so supportive, responsive, and collaborative in helping us during the transition period.  We completely restructured our program, and the software has been able to meet all of our needs.

They were very open to our hospital’s specific needs that were different from others. I am thankful to not have to lug around many clinical ladder binders anymore. The caregiver, mentors and managers can view the clinical ladder content at a glance.They continue to check in and ensure everything is on track. I would highly recommend StaffGarden for implementation of an electronic format for hospitals clinical ladder program; great team, great product.

However, now with StaffGarden and the analytics it provides, we can better leverage our talented Clinical Ladder Nurses to help drive the organization to new levels. As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, the Clinical Ladder program will be one of the major tools we use to meet patient’s expectations and distinguish Hoag as a nationally recognized provider.
