About Us

The Orchard Difference

We are passionate about providing a service which far surpasses the industry standard. As one of the nation’s leading providers of nurse case management, we do one thing, and we do it well. Our commitment to hiring and retaining the most talented case managers ensures our clients realize exceptional value, backed by superior outcomes.

Our team members aren’t just registered nurses with credentials, licenses, and extensive experience in multi-disciplinary areas of clinical care. They are enthusiastic and engaged critical-thinkers, coached to discover and illustrate the meaning in the work they perform. Our average STAT assignment takes 14 minutes from the time we receive the initial call to our nurse making contact with the injured worker. Bring us your challenges!
