Interesting.... Being a healthcare worker myself I see your point. I was going to point out that there is sort of a hierarchy within professionals and as you go up on the ladder the healthcare professionals become more specialized or "knowledge workers" and less easily replaceable. I was glad to see you acknowledged that.

The front line labor being a "commodity" is exactly the reason there are numerous staffing agencies for various healthcare professionals, however, in order to be successful at it you need to create a specialty niche for your company otherwise you will get lost in the shuffle... as "just another staffing agency". Great post!

Just curious to hear your thoughts...how do you feel about healthcare specialty staffing agencies? At that point does the specialized healthcare worker then become a commodity?
