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. Variables from local emergencies to seasonal census changes add an element of unpredictability that often makes staffing needs both difficult to project and to fill. 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. In March 2020, the Department faced a daunting task: Stand up two field hospitals totaling over 1,000 beds to accommodate projected patient overflow from area hospitals caused by the pandemic. This was a project of unprecedented scope and complexity.

Download this success story of how AMN Healthcare utilized their Open Talent Marketplace technology and assembled a team of experts to build a strategic plan responsive to the Department’s goals, timeline, and leadership and clinical needs.
