Patients can become frustrated when they aren’t seeing progress in their treatment, and they may begin to question doctor’s orders and treatments. Communication can help to manage these expectations and create an environment that allows for discussion and change of direction, as well as a better understanding of possible outcomes.

A Phoenix Rises: The New Soliant.com

 on /

At Soliant, we’ve spent the last 25 years making lives better. Having evolved through our proverbial childhood and adolescence, we have finally achieved adulthood. It’s time our online presence reflected the wisdom and now well-defined personality that that growth entails.

Like the noble phoenix rising from the ashes, a beautiful butterfly emerging from its chrysalis, or the nerd character in an ‘80s teen movie getting a makeover at the mall, Soliant too must transform anew as our next phase dawns. We redesigned our website in order to offer a cleaner, more seamless online experience for you and all our clients that reflects the genial, service-oriented culture that we are so proud to have spent the last quarter of a century building. Welcome to the new and improved soliant.com!

We continually strive to accommodate our clients with a personal touch so as to make their experiences with us as easy and comfortable as possible. Now, soliant.com offers the same level of service. The redesign features improved navigability, including straightforward, easy-to-access search and browsing functions, as well as full mobile-friendly functionality, so you can search for jobs and get industry updates anytime and on the go. It also boasts a warm, bright new look that reflects the friendly, welcoming environment we have worked hard to cultivate over the years.

We couldn’t be more excited about the revamped soliant.com – not just because it looks pretty (although it sure does, if we do say so ourselves). But mostly because we are confident that it will help us connect skilled clinicians with crucial job openings more efficiently and effectively. So please, take a few minutes to browse around, gawk at the shiny new graphics, and bask in the intuitive usability. Once you’re ready to get back to making a difference in your patients’ lives, we’ll be better equipped than ever to support you.
