Thursday, October 15th, 2020
Southwest-Georgia based Asa Healthcare Solutions has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Health Care Staffing Services Certification by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a healthcare organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.
Healthcare staffing firms place temporary staff in organizations that direct or provide patient care. Organization founder Tracy St. Amant stated “This Health Care Staffing Services Certification demonstrates Asa Healthcare Solutions’ high level of commitment to healthcare staffing. We are proud to work with healthcare professionals who see themselves as healers. Our partners also place a high value on quality care. This Certification is a sign of our work to ensure how qualifications and competencies of staff are determined, how staff are placed and how their performance is monitored. Many staffing agencies do not pursue this Certification, but we believed it was vitally important to our agency’s values and our partners to hold ourselves to a high standard.”
“Health Care Staffing Services Certification recognizes healthcare staffing firms committed to fostering continuous quality improvement in patient safety and quality of care,” says Mark Pelletier, RN, MS, chief operating officer, Accreditation and Certification Operations, and chief nursing executive, The Joint Commission. “We commend Asa Healthcare for using certification to strengthen its program structure and management framework, as well as to enhance its staff recruitment and development processes.”
“Asa Healthcare Solutions has grown quickly in a very short time,” said St. Amant. “We believe our growth is due to the amazing partnership we have with our partners, and we are honored by the trust they place in us. We know this trust is earned every day by our nurses and healthcare providers. The name “Asa” is a Hebrew name meaning “healer” and exemplifies our commitment to hiring healers.”

Asa Healthcare Solutions was founded in 2017 by industry veterans who followed their passion to create a medical staffing agency that gives you, as a medical professional, the opportunity to provide the compassionate and quality care that led you to this career in the first place. The population of southwest Georgia is often economically challenged, aging, and underserved creating a multi-layered and complex healthcare environment. While we have a need for a rural, critical access level of care, we also find a significant need for critical care, emergency medicine, and behavioral health clinicians. Since opening, Asa Healthcare Solutions has quickly grown into a trusted source for high quality healthcare professionals.
