                  We’re dominating company culture daily. Sounds ominous doesn’t it? BOW DOWN BEFORE OUR TOTAL DOMINATION… but that’s not really what we mean. Let us explain: we believe in dominating this industry with our authenticity, with the wish for the success of every Fusion employee, with integrity, with autonomy for our highly qualified staff, with never settling for second best, and with staying grounded no matter what. And pizza. We believe in TOTALLY DOMINATING PIZZA.

                  What, you think we made it this far by eating tacos all day? Nah. We’re no scrubs. Fusion is all about fostering a culture of health and wellness. Healthy snacks, fitness classes, and staying active really helps fuel our positive attitudes and achievements. And that is spearheaded by our very own leader and mastermind, Scott Wehner.

                        We love Cardio! Cardiology that is. Cath Lab is a beast of its own and deserves a team that knows Cardiology. Soooo... what does Fusion do? Bring in the big guns that live and breathe Cath Lab, obviously! Our experienced Cath Lab Division is dedicated to RNs and RTs who specialize in Cath Lab, Interventional Radiology, and EP. After all, Cath Lab peeps are superheroes. Saving lives and mending broken hearts is the name of their game. Taylor Swift should look at becoming besties with these guys.

                        The Nursing Division (which is so awesome by the way and growing exponentially as we speak) is led by what we call "The Two Dans". Their wives also share a name. No one has ever seen the Dans in the same place at the same time, so YOU DO THE MATH. No really, please do the math because verbal skills are really where our skills lie, and math is hard.

                            We were so used to working practically on top of one another, we literally didn't know what to do with ourselves in a 7,000-square-foot office! For the first few weeks we just sat in the corners, rocking back and forth while burning cubicle walls for warmth. Eventually, we all got used to the space.

                              Travis Mason joined Fusion Medical Staffing as our first internal employee. He is our Hawkeye. Because of the arrows and bullseyes and... okay, look, we just really like Hawkeye. He's the best Avenger in our opinion. Do you guys want to talk about comic books? Why is it so quiet all of a sudden? Anyway, Travis really does hit his mark every time. (Just like Hawkeye.)

                              First office

                              Oh boy, were we ever excited to be out of Basement Land™. Except, well, there was a mysterious noxious odor to our new office. We probably shouldn't have even mentioned it and yet here we are mentioning it anyway. Because that is how we roll. Honesty is very important to us — almost as important as the liberal application of several gallons of Febreze around our exciting new office space.
