“We’re excited about the positive outlook for 2013 and future years,” says Susan Salka, president and chief executive officer of AMN Healthcare. “The longer-term trends filling demand for our services include the growing adoption of work force solutions, the increased demand for health care from the aging population, and the addition of 30 million insured citizens and the worsening clinical labor shortage as clinicians and physicians retire.”
