MANILA, Philippines - Despite massive layoffs threatening overseas Filipino workers (OFW) all over the world, a well-known US-based health care employment provider will be arriving in January to interview selected Filipino applicants who wish to work in US hospitals.

According to recruitment consultant Emmanuel Geslani, Cambridge Healthcare from Maryland, which is connected with 260 world-class facilities all over the US, is in urgent need of 600 registered nurses, and physical and occupational therapists who will be deployed immediately to hospitals all over America.

However, only those selected by manpower agency St. Georges Recruitment International, Inc. will be given the opportunity to work in US hospitals connected with Cambridge Healthcare.

Under the agreement with St. Georges, selected health care professionals will be able to work within three to six months in the US with H-1B visas under a non-cap exempt status, meaning their positions will not fall under the retrogression period for H-1B visas, which is a longer process.

According to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services, the H-1B visa is “a nonimmigrant classification used by an alien who will be employed temporarily in a specialty occupation or as a fashion model of distinguished merit and ability."

Aside from immediate departure to the US, selected applicants will receive extra benefits from Cambridge Healthcare, Geslani said in a statement.

Some of these benefits include a relocation bonus, assistance and housing allowance, a 36-hour week with 12-hour shifts, lucrative overtime pay, US standard benefits and options, paid legal, licensing and testing fees and the option of being joined by one’s spouse and two children under 21.

Geslani also said that the minimum salary is $48,192 or almost P2.4 million a year or higher, depending on the experience and qualifications of the selected applicant.

Nurses or therapists with at least one year experience currently working or are on volunteer duty and have worked in a 100-bed capacity hospital are qualified to apply for the limited slots available.

Passers of the National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nurse (NCLEX), International English Language Testing System (IELTS), and National Physical Therapy Examination are preferred but not required.

This is because the employer can assist the selected applicant in taking the NCLEX, visa screen, state licensure, etc., Geslani said.

Meanwhile, he said that the screening of applicants is currently on-going and interested applicants may still apply for evaluation.

They can send their resumes via courier, e-mail or walk-in at St. Georges Recruitment International at 7844 Makati Avenue, Makati City or call 899-0557. Email address is

Applicants must bring complete documents like IELTS, passport, diploma, transcript of records, employment certificates, and curriculum vitae with detailed job descriptions.- Kimberly Jane T. Tan, GMANews.TV
