AMN Healthcare (NYSE: AMN), the leader and innovator in healthcare workforce solutions and staffing services, and BJC HealthCare, one of the nation’s largest nonprofit healthcare integrated delivery organizations, were recognized for outstanding collaboration with the 2017 HRO Today Services and Technology Association Award for Partnership in Recruiting Excellence.
The award honors the high-achieving BJC HealthCare and AMN Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) partnership, which reduced contingent labor costs and improved recruitment efficiency to fill critical nursing needs at the healthcare provider.
The talent acquisition partnership is led by Andrea Lampert, VP Talent Strategies at BJC HealthCare, and Chris Scowden, who leads the RPO division at AMN Healthcare.
“We strive to be a national model for patient advocacy, clinical quality, medical research, employee satisfaction and financial stability,” Lampert said. “Talent drives all of those outcomes, and it is a critical priority to have the right staff in the right place to deliver and support exceptional patient care.”
AMN Healthcare’s recruitment services focus on the client’s most pressing workforce needs to create a customized solution that delivers the right outcomes cost effectively. For BJC specifically, AMN was asked to fill high-need nursing positions so that BJC could focus on strategic organizational initiatives such as clinician retention, productivity, community outreach, and, most importantly, patient care. The partnership resulted in the placement of more than 350 nurses across 10 health care locations in its first year.
“We are honored to be recognized alongside BJC HealthCare for our recruitment partnership,” said Dan White, President of Strategic Workforce Solutions at AMN Healthcare. “Providing a quality patient experience requires balancing hiring needs with budget guidelines and organizational goals. We are excited to be supporting BJC HealthCare in recruiting quality healthcare talent so that they can focus on promoting the health and well-being of the patients and communities they serve.”
