Medical Staffing Network (MSN) Pharmacy is going back to its roots by changing the company name to Pharmstaff, a name you may recognize..

For over 30 years, Pharmstaff has provided Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians with a wide variety ofpharmacy career opportunities across the country. The company will continue to be a niche specialty staffing and recruiting firm in pharmacy while incorporating additional benefits offered by its parent company, Cross Country Staffing.

You may recognize the Pharmstaff logos that have been used throughout the company’s successful tenure working with pharmacy professionals.


Pharmstaff was established in 1982 by a Chicago pharmacist who recognized the growing need for pharmacists to secure fill-ins when they needed time off. In 2002 Pharmstaff was acquired by a nationally recognized staffing firm, Medical Staffing Network. The company placed pharmacy professionals in all 50 states by 2005 and the following year, Pharmstaff established an international footprint with its first placement outside of the United States on a U.S. Army base in the Kwajalein Islands. Pharmstaff continued to expand its reach in the United States by placing pharmacy professionals in seven of the top ten pharmacy retailers nationwide.

Over ten years after the acquisition of Pharmstaff, the divisions of Medical Staffing Network underwent a re-branding campaign and Pharmstaff was renamed Medical Staffing Network (MSN) Pharmacy in 2013. This is the name that the company has operated under for nearly two years and the name that you know the company by today.

In 2014 Medical Staffing Network Pharmacy became a member of the Cross Country Staffing family with Cross Country Healthcare’s acquisition of Medical Staffing Network. With this acquisition a decision was made to revert back to the pharmacy division’s original brand name, Pharmstaff, to acknowledge Cross Country’s commitment to the unique and specialized nature of pharmacy staffing and recruiting.

Over the coming months you will begin to see our new transitional logo and eventually the brand new Pharmstaff logo as a member of the Cross Country Staffing family.


Pharmstaff will continue its proud 30-year tradition of matching pharmacy professionals to career opportunities. From temporary, contract, direct-hire and travel opportunities, Pharmstaff works with a wide variety of facilities across the nation including retail, hospitals, non-traditional, industry and government settings.
