Ardor Health Solutions has received the The Joint Commission’s Certification for Health Care Staffing Services and earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval®! The certification demonstrates Ardor Health Solutions commitment to providing qualified and competent health care professionals.
We underwent a rigorous onsite review in order to achieve this certification. Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with national standards that assess how health care staffing firms determine the qualifications and competency of staff, placement of staff, and how they monitor performance. All certified health care staffing organizations are required to collect data on their own performance.
This certification assures both our clients and candidates that they are partnering up with one of the most highly qualified and committed healthcare staffing companies in the nation.
Healthcare staffing firms place temporary staff in organizations that direct or provide patient care. Established in October 2004, Health Care Staffing Services Certification, awarded for a two-year period, offers an independent and comprehensive evaluation of a staffing firm’s abilities to provide competent staffing services.
“Ardor Health is pleased to receive certification from The Joint Commission, the premier quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation,” said Mike Lamia, CEO and Co-Founder of Ardor Health Solutions. “The Health Care Staffing Certification demonstrates our commitment and accountability to clients and the healthcare professionals we employ. Certification establishes, defines and measures delivery on key functional areas and performance measures across the entire industry.”
