A Strategic Approach to State-Wide Rapid Crisis Response
AMN HEALTHCARE’S RAPID FACILITY RESPONSE SOLVES A MAJOR STAFFING CHALLENGE
Staffing healthcare facilities with executive leaders, physicians, nurses and other professionals can be a challenging endeavor.

Layer on the emergence of COVID-19 and the needs become greater.
A dramatic example of a recent rapid crisis need is illustrated by a major Midwestern state’s Department of Health and Human Services.

This was a project of unprecedented scope and complexity.
