Founded in 1973, your peace of mind is in trusting hands_

Relief Medical Services is one of the oldest and most prestigious hospital staffing and private duty agencies in the Chicagoland area. We are one of only a few agencies that provide both of these services. Family owned and operated since 1973, we are very proud of our many years of experience, excellent staffing coordinators, support team and over 5,000 nurses on our database.

Our field staff provides high quality medical and non-medical care to hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, and private duty patients. Our managers pride themselves on the personal attention we give to each and every client as well as each and every employee. We are in the office 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. You will not reach an answering service, answering machine, or voice mail system when you call us. Our clients can always count on a prompt, effective response from our staffing team.

Because of the strong relationships we have developed over the years, hospitals have come to depend on us for last-minute needs. A large portion of our business is done on a late call basis.  Staffing needs are frequently met within 4 hours of a request. Delivering in a pinch is something we take great pride in and has become our, "Hallmark”.

Our nurses are part of an elite group of healthcare professionals working at over 100 facilities in and around the Chicagoland area. Each nurse we hire must undergo stringent screening and meet hiring criteria that goes above and beyond Illinois Department of Public Health requirements.  All staff receive a complete orientation before beginning work at any facility or private duty client. 

Relief Medical Services was one of the very first agencies to provide per diem hospital staffing. Over the many years, despite market changes, recessions, nursing shortages, and tremendous agency turnover, we have grown and adapted to meet the ever-changing market. We also offer opportunities for long-term assignments and contract staffing.

For more information about opportunities at Relief Medical Services, please call 312-464-0001 for hospital staffing inquiries or 847-679-6065 for assisted living, long term care, nursing home, hospice or private duty. You may also email us at
