Makes the dream work


Our leadership team shares in our mission to place highly qualified physicians in medical facilities on a temporary and permanent basis. This is accomplished through listening and acting upon our client’s needs and specifications, ensuring all placements fulfill the expectations of all parties, creating long lasting partnerships. Through those partnerships, built on trust and success, we create a work life balance for the physicians we place within the communities we serve.


Cofi Jordan – Owner

In 1998 Cofi entered into the physician staffing industry as a recruiter for a large national firm. Within her first 2 years she was inspired to go into management which led her ultimately to become Director of Operations and interim President. Through this experience she gained knowledge and expertise of business and the financial aspects of running a $50M organization. Taking her entrepreneurial spirit into 2006, she partnered with 2 Anesthesiologists, opening a physician staffing agency to enhance their Practice Management Group. After the agency grew to $20M in annual revenue over 4 years, they sold to one of the largest healthcare groups in the country. In 2013 Cofi partnered with Stuart McKelvey in the opening of Lotus Medical Staffing, as a division of Mint. She continues her entrepreneurial experience by owning and managing Lotus Medical Staffing. One of her secrets to success is identifying one’s strengths, putting them in positions where their gifts can enhance the lives of others. Cofi’s initiative is to ensure her staff, clients, and physicians develop a perfect work life balance.


Stuart McKelvey – Owner

In October of 2008, Stuart acquired Prime Staff—a Houston-based locum tenens company. After an overhaul of the business and re-branding to Mint Physician Staffing, the company has since quadrupled in size in terms of both employee count and revenue. As President of Mint, Stuart manages the company on a daily basis. Stuart is a private individual investor to Lotus Medical Staffing and is not affiliated with any other company or private equity investor.
