The Joint Commission, a provider of healthcare quality standards, recertified AMN Healthcare with its “Gold Seal of Approval” for healthcare staffing services.  Additionally, Staff Care, AMN’s locum tenens division, has been included in the certification process.
“Healthcare organizations that contract with AMN can look to this certification as an assurance that AMN demonstrates a commitment to providing and continuously improving quality services,” said Michele Sacco, MS, The Joint Commission’s executive director, Health Care Staffing Services Certification.

Marcia Faller, RN, PhD, AMN’s Chief Clinical Officer, said, “We always focus on superior quality management to ensure that only the most qualified healthcare professionals are staffed on a consistent basis.  The Joint Commission’s certification independently validates our industry-leading quality processes to both hospitals and healthcare professionals.  Doctors, nurses, and allied healthcare professionals know we are providing quality, competency, and a level of commitment to industry-leading competency standards established by The Joint Commission.
