TEMPORARY CLINICAL STAFFING:
The need for health care continues, even when doctors and nurses leave to pursue other opportunities. To continue delivering care, health centers often need to enlist temporary help.
Staff Care, which finds temporary placements for more than 7,500 physicians each year, provides NACHC members with temporary physician staffing.
AMN Healthcare provides temporary nurse staffing, on a contingent basis.
The relationship with NACHC lets AMN Healthcare and Staff Care offer their services at preferred prices. Fees are not due until the temporary clinician begins billable work.
