Interim HealthCare’s story starts in 1971 formerly known as The Salo Organization; the vision of one man with big ambitions. At the age of 58, this man took a big gamble that would result in the largest franchise of Interim HealthCare Inc.

New Beginnings

This man’s name was Eino ‘Arthur’ Salo. With an impressive background in finance in the precious metals industry, he joined Medical Personnel Pool (now known as Interim HealthCare Inc.) in 1971 and became one of the first franchise owners for the company. With his wife Nina, they opened four offices in Columbus, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Milwaukee..

With little more than a vision to pioneer healthcare in America, and the will to learn, Arthur and son Harry Salo, learned the business. With guidance from MPP’s co-founder Al Sorensen, the model for Interim HealthCare was founded– bringing care to patient homes.

Harry was able to expand the franchise massively, with the guidance of Arthur and Al, throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania, and open our Morgantown, WV office by the mid-1980s.

In 1992, Medical Personnel Pool changed its name to Interim HealthCare Inc. as the company continued to offer services within our diverse lines of business, all under one banner.

From the Salo family that founded our organization to our leaders today, Interim HealthCare has been led by some incredible people over the years.
