CMS was founded in 2001 by nursing leaders who worked as agency nurses and believed there was a better way. They recognized that agency nurses were a critical part of healthcare and that continuous improvement was imperative for the highest quality patient care. They also experienced poor agency advocacy, inaccurate pay, inadequate assignment preparation, and lack of clinical support. This context ignited their passion to create an organization capable of delivering extraordinary experiences for healthcare professionals and for the facilities they serve.
Today’s healthcare administrators are compelled to consider alternative delivery models, while continuing to demand high standards of clinical and professional excellence. Anticipating this challenge, CMS was acquired by American Surgical Professionals in January, 2018, establishing the American Medical Staffing network. This partnership created a broader range of capabilities & service models, expanded geographic access, and increased investment in the technologies that benefit clients and healthcare professionals.
Two decades later, CMS remains an industry leader, proactively anticipating change and implementing staffing solutions. The constant in this evolution has been its values and quality standards under the continuing leadership of the founding nurse.
I couldn’t be happier working with Reen to obtain my first travel assignment! I am admittedly a very particular person and can be difficult to deal with. I was looking for something very specific in my first agency contract. I found myself apologizing to Reen often. Reen was extremely patient with me and willing to listen to my wants and needs to help obtain the exact contract I was looking for, and we just signed! I had even declined several contract offers that she had lined up for me because they didn’t meet my expectations or wants for my first contract. I couldn’t recommend her more!
