Boca Raton, FL

American Traveler Allied

Our allied healthcare staffing agency has been awarded The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for 2012. As an affiliate of American Traveler Staffing Professionals, we have been continuously certified by The Joint Commission since 2005 and have once again earned the valued Gold Seal of Approval. Addressing the nation's allied healthcare shortage by providing healthcare employers with travel   therapy job candidates, we focus on recruiting skilled candidates to fulfill Physical therapy jobs and occupational therapy jobs.

"Receiving certification time and time again is a testament to our commitment to healthcare employers and patients alike," said Mary Kay Hull, Vice President of Recruitment. “Our attention to detail from application to placement ensures that we staff facilities nationwide with top quality candidates who practice with a high level of integrity and professionalism. We've been certified since 2005 and continue to uphold the standards of this esteemed organization."

Therapist Shortages

With therapist shortages expected to increase nationwide through 2020, southern and western U.S. states will be hit hardest, areas of the country known for record numbers of retiring baby boomers. This continued shortage of qualified local therapists will make it increasingly difficult for healthcare employers of all types in these areas to source, onboard and retain qualified therapy jobs candidates in a timely manner. A problem Hull said her firm is strategically positioned to solve.

"Our national footprint and leading-edge technologies enable us to fill vacancies fast, even for hard-to-find travel therapists in remote parts of the country," Hull said. "In line with The Joint Commission, our goal  is to continuously improve health care processes. To that end, we make it easy for clients to recruit therapists quickly and to enable a high level of patient care."

We are one of 19,000 health care organizations in the U.S. certified by The Joint Commission. To achieve certification, healthcare staffing agencies undergo an in-depth review of qualifications and competency of staff, placement procedures and staff performance benchmarks. Seven years in a row, our agency has excelled in areas of customer service and support, communications and accountability.

"As The Joint Commission fosters excellence in healthcare, we nurture  a proactive staffing environment. We hold candidates to high standards and are committed to meeting the specific needs of healthcare employers of all types," Hull said.
