AMN Healthcare Services, Inc. was incorporated in the state of Delaware on November 10, 1997. It operates as a healthcare staffing company in the United States. As a nationwide provider of travel nurse and allied staffing services, locum tenens (temporary physician staffing) and physician permanent placement services, it recruits physicians, nurses and allied healthcare professionals, its 'healthcare professionals,' nationally and internationally and place them on assignments of variable lengths and in permanent positions at acute-care hospitals, physician practice groups and other healthcare settings, including rehabilitation centers, radiology imaging facilities, dialysis clinics, ambulatory surgery centers and pharmacies throughout the United States. The Company also offers a managed services program in which it manages the multiple clinical vendors for client, as well as recruitment process outsourcing services, where it provides recruitment for permanent clinical positions for its clients. The Company's hospital and healthcare facility clients utilize its temporary staffing services to cost-effectively manage both short and long-term shortages in their staff due to a variety of circumstances such as a lack of qualified, specialized local healthcare professionals, attrition, leave schedules, new unit openings, and to identify candidates for permanent positions. The Company's staffing services are marketed to two distinct customer groups: healthcare professionals and hospitals, physician practice groups and other healthcare centers. It uses distinct brands to market its differentiated services throughout the healthcare staffing spectrum. The healthcare staffing and recruitment industry is highly competitive. It competes in national, regional and local markets with full-service staffing companies and specialized temporary staffing agencies for both healthcare professionals and hospital and healthcare facility clients. Some of its competitors in the travel nurse, allied and locum tenens staffing sectors include Cross Country Healthcare, CHG Healthcare Services, On Assignment and Jackson Healthcare Staffing. The healthcare industry is subject to extensive and complex federal and state laws and regulations related to professional licensure, conduct of operations, payment for services and payment for referrals.
