Frequently Asked Questions
Who We Are
Is Premier a Staffing Agency?
Premier is a department within Memorial Hermann Human Resources that operates similarly to a staffing agency, with flexible schedules and the ability to work part time, per diem and even on long-term full-time contracts. However, unlike a staffing agency, working at Premier you can cover any of our hospitals and clinics as a Memorial Hermann employee - getting all of the hours you want and only using one documentation system while enjoying the perks of our valued employees.
What is the difference between an agency contract and a contract with Premier?
Premier is part of Memorial Hermann, and our employees are Memorial Hermann employees. This allows you to work as many shifts as you want using a single documentation system while truly being a part of our system. Additionally, Memorial Hermann does not utilize external staffing agencies for per-diem staffing – meaning that if you would like to work part time/per-diem for Memorial Hermann, Premier is the department you need to go through.
Do you only staff Memorial Hermann hospitals?
We staff any facility operated by Memorial Hermann, including hospitals, clinics and home health.
Hiring Process & Requirements:
Where do I apply with Premier?

How long is orientation?
Orientation is approximately 4-5 shifts and includes one day at the Premier office, then documentation (Cerner/Care4) training, followed by a skills day at the hospital you will primarily be working at and two shadow shifts. We encourage new employees with limited availability to please plan for this time to maximize training effectiveness.
Why do I have to have two years of experience?
Premier employees are eligible to work at any of our locations across Houston. The expectation is that once orientation is complete, our employees can “hit the ground running” with limited training. Our research has shown that employees with a minimum of two years of experience are best positioned for success.
Why do I have to take an assessment?
All Memorial Hermann clinical new hires are required to take an assessment as part of the hiring process. This is done through Prophecy, an online tool that helps us determine competency levels to best match candidates for placement within our system.
