AMN Healthcare has reached an agreement to acquire Advanced Medical Personnel Services for $200 million, with up to $20 million more to be paid based on the performance of AMPS. The Dallas-based healthcare workforce solution and staffing services company is looking to add therapist staffing services to make it a more comprehensive force in the medical staffing marketplace.
AMPS places therapists and nurses in hospitals,, skilled nursing facilities, home health, positions on a contract basis, and has set itself apart with its ability to serve a wide number of schools with telehealth capabilities.
“We are thrilled that the innovative team at Advanced will soon be part of the AMN family. Advanced will provide AMN the opportunity to enhance our offerings in some of the fastest growing and most important care settings. In addition to the attractive nature of their growing footprint in schools, we are excited about the potential of the recently launched telehealth platform for delivery of speech therapy to children across the country,” said Susan Salka, President and Chief Executive Officer of AMN Healthcare via release. “This acquisition also expands our talent network of healthcare professionals and increases our placement capabilities where we have the most significant imbalances of talent supply and demand.”
Jennifer Fuicelli, CEO of Advanced added via release, “We are pleased that AMN will further accelerate the unique position Advanced has developed in healthcare staffing, particularly in school services and technology to deliver therapy remotely. Under AMN’s leadership, Advanced will continue to flourish in providing innovative solutions in the constantly evolving healthcare landscape.”
If the acquisition receives regulatory approval, it is expected to close by June of this year.
