Nationwide Permanent & Temporary Staffing for Pathology & Histology Labs

About Nicklas Medical Staffing | Lab Staffing

We know firsthand how labs work

Why We Do What We Do

We aren't just lab staffing experts — we are experienced lab professionals.

Nicklas Medical Staffing Founder and Owner, Deborah Hills, has a medical career that spans over 20 years, working first as a phlebotomist and later as a pathologists' assistant. During that time, she worked in multiple hospital settings, gaining invaluable insight and experience into the pathology lab industry across the U.S.

Deborah initially founded Nicklas Medical Staffing to market and outsource her own pathologists' assistant services. However, she quickly realized her unique background, network, and expertise enabled her to successfully source and place pathology and histology lab professionals on a national scale.

Today, Nicklas Medical Staffing develops recruiting plans for pathologists' assistants and histotechs at healthcare facilities across the country. We've earned our reputation as an innovator in lab staffing services, developing long-lasting partnerships built on honesty, integrity, and trust.
