(Rockville, MD) The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) announced today that AMN Healthcare, a healthcare staffing company, has become an ASHA Corporate Partner.
ASHA’s partnership with AMN Healthcare will offer students and patients with communication disorders greater access to vital services that ASHA members provide. Schools, hospitals, and outpatient home health providers will be able to find the audiologists, speech-language pathologists, clinical fellows, and other clinicians that their communities need.
“Too often, communication disorders go untreated due to lack of access,” said ASHA President Judy Rich, EdD, CCC-SLP, BCS-CL. “At ASHA, we work to ensure that effective communication is available to everyone. Our new partnership with AMN Healthcare is an exciting and promising step in that direction.”
“AMN Healthcare is dedicated to helping all people live healthier lives, and our partnership with ASHA supports our shared effort to ensure that quality clinicians are available when people need them,” said Robin Johnson, Division President, Allied Staffing Solutions, AMN Healthcare. “From filling critical positions with quality clinicians, attracting more people to clinical professions, and helping students and patients access the quality practitioners they need, this partnership provides critical benefits to the communities we serve.”
ASHA members and employers interested in finding ASHA-certified communication sciences and disorders professionals are invited to visit the AMN Healthcare website.
