            Inc 5000 Fastest Growing Companies – 3x in a row

            You know what they say: third time’s a charm! Except, we were successful the first two times also, so… we must be pretty darn charming. What is it? Our smile? Our genuine demeanor? Our humble attitude? You tell us.

          • July 2017

            Staffing Industry Analysis' 40 under 40, Sam Wageman

            He’s done it again! This time, he kicked it up a notch by making it national. Sam Wageman’s authenticity and leadership landed him another 40 under 40 award, just under the wire. We think he’s just trying to collect as many of these as possible before his under-40 status is up.

            • October 2016

              Entrepreneur’s Top Company Cultures 2016

              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.

              William M. Kizer Light of Wellness Leadership Award, Scott Wehner

              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.

            • September 2016

              Midland Business Journal 40 under 40, Sam Wageman

              A big part of our success is driven by terrific people at the helm. Sam Wageman has proven himself as a top entrepreneur and leader in Omaha. (It probably helps that he’s under 40 too.)

            • August 2016

              Inc 5000 Fastest Growing Companies – 2x in a row

              Oops, we did it again! Yeah… we know that song isn’t really that relevant now, but Fusion sure is. And we just keep on getting bigger and better. What’s next, a Grammy?

            • May 2016

              Finalist in Best Places to Work in Omaha

              And here we are again. Ok, perhaps this year, we didn't win. But just like we learned in kindergarten, it's good to share.

            • March 2016

              Staffing Industry Analysis' Best Staffing Company to Temp For

              No, no, no really. You shouldn't have. Us? Oh! You're too much. Two nominations, and now the win. That's just how we roll. Thank you, thank you, thank you! No really… thank you!

              Doubled in size

              Remember when Oreo came out with Double Stuf Oreos? Mind blown. Basically, same thing here: Fusion just doubled up on their growth. How is this even possible? We have no idea — except for the awesome. The awesome from all of you, and the awesome from all of us. Here's to more awesome — and be on the lookout for Triple Stuf Oreos soon!

                That's right. Recognize. Recognized as one of Entrepreneur’s Top Company Cultures for 2015 in the Medium Enterprise category. As you may have guessed, we're all about a great culture… and it's paying off with all the recognition. Got 99 problems, but awards ain't one!

              • August 2015

                Inc 5000 Fastest Growing Companies

                Fastest growing companies. Best place to work. Best Staffing Firms to Temp For. Yeah, we’ll take all of that. What else you got for us, universe?

              • March 2015

                Staffing Industry Analysis' Best Staffing Company to Temp For – Finalist 2x in a row

                Best Places to Work Omaha – 2x in a row

                You can't make this stuff up, you guys! We're going nuts around here with excitement over our recent recognition as one of the Best Places to Work in Omaha two years in a row! This award "recognizes those employers in Greater Omaha that have created truly great, engaged places to work." Yep, that's us.


                • March 2014

                  We're very excited and honored to be considered as a finalist for this award. We take a lot of pride in taking care of our travelers. A LOT. If we could tuck them into bed at night with cocoa, we totally would. Thank you, SIA!

                  OMG! We won 1st place! We know! We're not surprised either! Er...we mean… we humbly accept this award. Thank you to The Greater Omaha Chamber and, of course, to the entire Fusion team. We kind of knew we were the best, and now everyone else does, too.


                  • November 2013

                    Launched: Cath Lab Division

                    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.

                  • April 2013

                    Launched: Nursing Division

                    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.


                    • January 2012

                      Launched: Lab Division

                      It's just like Breaking Bad, but without the uh...okay it's nothing like Breaking Bad. It's a mobile lab division run by two of the coolest dudes you'll ever meet — Chad and Corey. In fact, they should have their own show! They could call it "Breaking Chad."


                      • March 2011

                        Our new office

                        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, but sometimes a loud noise will send Sam running into the supply closet to "feel the okay feelings again."

                      • February 2011

                        Joint Commission Certified

                        So many high fives this day! And hugs... And poppin’ bottles, or whatever the kids say about champagne and parties these days.


                        • March 2010

                          Our first internal employee

                          If Colleen was our Wonder Woman, then Travis Mason, Senior Account Executive, is our Hawkeye. Because of the arrows and bullseyes and... okay, look, we just really, 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.)

                        • February 2010

                          Our 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.

                        • January 2010

                          Our first traveling therapist

                          Like the moon landing or the day the Berlin Wall came down, everyone remembers the day we hired Colleen Mooseman. Fusion's first traveling physical therapist, Colleen was (and still is) like a superhero or a goddess — or both! Like Wonder Woman. Colleen Mooseman is Wonder Woman is what we are trying to say.

                            In the beginning

                            If you've seen The Social Network (the Facebook movie), you basically already know the story of Fusion Medical's inception. Granted, there are a few discrepancies. For instance, instead of working from the privileged confines of a Harvard dorm room, Sam and Scott toiled from a heatless, barebones basement in Nebraska. And instead of creating Facebook, they built a business that, you know... contributes positively to the healthcare of human beings. And they are not bajilliontrillionaires. Yet. Other than those few things, however, it's totally the same story.
