Loyal Source’s Travel Nursing Division Awarded Health Care Staffing Services Certification from the Joint Commission

Staffing agency meets ever-growing demand for travel nurses with an independently verified standard of excellence

ORLANDO, Fla., June 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Loyal Source, an Orlando-based staffing agency providing elite contracting staffing services worldwide, today announces it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Health Care Staffing Services Certification for its travel nursing division. The certification demonstrates Loyal Source’s commitment to providing qualified and competent health care professionals in the travel nursing field.

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.

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, and is considered the gold standard in evaluation for the staffing industry.

“Loyal Source has demonstrated its commitment to providing quality health care staffing services to health care organizations as evidenced by its achievement of Joint Commission certification,” said Patrick Phelan, executive director, Hospital Business Development, The Joint Commission. “We recognize and commend Loyal Source for its efforts to provide a safe, high-quality standard of service.”

“Earning certification from The Joint Commission is a badge of honor for our travel nursing division, and demonstrates our commitment and accountability to clients and the health care professionals we employ,” said Steve Lockwood, president of travel nursing at Loyal Source. “Our travel nursing division continues to grow, and we’re proud to adhere to an independently established and verified standard of excellence.”
