DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AMN Healthcare donated $1.1 million to a wide variety of charitable organizations in 2021 through a program to reward AMN healthcare professionals for their outstanding service while supporting health research, community, advocacy, and other causes.
The program was part of an initiative by AMN Healthcare to show appreciation for travel and local staffing nurses and allied professionals who worked 1,000 hours or more in the first half of 2021, signing up to serve at hospitals and other healthcare facilities during the depths of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Each healthcare professional received a $1,000 personal bonus, plus AMN donated $1,000 to a charity of their choice, which included the American Cancer Society, Alzheimer’s Association, DAV (Disabled American Veterans), International Esperanza Project, National Alliance on Mental Illness, National Breast Cancer Foundation, National League for Nursing, American Nurses Foundation, and Direct Relief.
“Our clinicians not only provide amazing care to help patients heal, but they also go above and beyond to better the lives of those in need and support the nursing profession,” said Susan Salka, President and CEO of AMN Healthcare. “Our program rewards their hard work and supports their spirit of generosity and giving. We are very grateful and honored for their service to patients and the community.”
The donations reflect the strong philanthropic culture of AMN Healthcare. The company, its corporate team members, and healthcare professionals give back to the communities they serve in a variety of ways, including corporate sponsorships, charitable giving, volunteering, scholarships, in-kind donations, gift-matching, and grant-making.
