Vighter is a verified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) located in San Antonio, TX. We are ISO 9001:2015 registered and accredited by The Joint Commission in Healthcare Staffing Services. Over the past 15+ years our growth has been fueled by implementing a corporate culture acutely focused on customer service, responsiveness, quality, and trust.
The company was founded in 2005 by Dr. Jeff Lee, a former Special Forces “Green Beret” medic who completed his medical school training at the Uniformed Service University of Health Science. His knowledge of medicine coupled with that of tactical operations in high threat environments led him to provide medical direction and oversight of medics in Afghanistan and Iraq for a government contractor.
In 2012 Mr. Jeremy Calvert joined the firm as a partner to accelerate growth within the healthcare staffing and medical services lines of business. Since that time, Vighter has ranked on the Inc 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies multiple years. When the founder decided to pursue other ventures in 2020, Mr. Calvert purchase the majority ownership and took over as Chief Executive Officer.
In 2013 Mr. Robert Garcia joined the firm as a Flight Nurse on a Department of Homeland Security contract and, due to his ability to lead healthcare providers, quickly progressed through the ranks up to the Vice President level. In 2017 he gained partner status and in 2020 was promoted to Chief Operating Officer when he purchased significant interest in the firm from the founder.
Throughout the pandemic the company has deployed physicians, nurses, and ancillary providers to support clients nationwide. Given the emergency nature of travel staffing in a pandemic, Vighter has created systems to rapidly deploy healthcare providers in a matter of days.
