AB Staffing Solutions Notes Hiring of Healthcare Workers as 20-Year High


One Gilbert company was instrumental in getting desperately needed healthcare workers to the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. On June 13, AB Staffing Solutions is celebrating its 20th year in business with an office expansion and is actively hiring recruiters, salespeople, and administrative staff to meet the needs of a growing national clientele.

AB Staffing Solutions LLC is a nationwide leader in travel nurse, allied health, and Locum Tenens staffing – a solution which assigns its own clinical personnel to address staffing shortages at client hospitals and other medical facilities.

Since 2002, ABSS has been supplying travel nurses, physicians and other health professionals to hospitals and clinics throughout the United States.

The privately held company, which employs 120 at their Gilbert headquarters, has placed thousands of healthcare providers through the years by sourcing, qualifying, and credentialing clinical personnel to meet the varied needs of its healthcare clients and their patient population.

In 2022, the company expanded its headquarters in Gilbert to accommodate dozens of new staff positions in response to increased client demands brought about by a growing shortage of qualified healthcare providers.

ABSS works extensively with Federal Government healthcare facilities, including those operated by the Veterans Administration (VA), Indian Health Services (IHS), and the Department of Defense (DOD), in addition to commercial hospitals nationwide. The firm excels in getting staff to rural and remote medical facilities, many of which provide healthcare to underserved populations.

In 2021, the company was selected to support the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) with COVID related staffing needs. This partnership resulted in the placement of over 700 nurses at medical facilities throughout Idaho and Washington.

When the Covid-19 crisis began in 2020, ABSS worked 24/7 to get healthcare providers to areas hit hardest by the virus.

In the earliest stages of the pandemic, the company sent over 200 registered nurses, physicians, and respiratory therapists to hot spots in New York, New Orleans, and other metro areas in a race to save lives.

To get providers to needed areas quickly, the company worked internally around the clock to expedite the credentialing process which establishes the qualifications of licensed medical professionals.  What would normally take weeks to process was shortened to a matter of days.

ABSS also donated 20,000 KN95 masks to several Indian Health and Tribal clients in Arizona and other states due to the shortage of protective gear at many facilities.

“Our mission is to get providers where they are needed as quickly as possible and our recruiters go the extra mile to make sure our nurses, physicians, and other providers are taken care of during their assignments,” said Lance Schugg, President of ABSS.

“Our goal is to create the best possible experience for our providers, assist healthcare facilities and serve our communities,” added Schugg.

According to Evan Burks, Chief Executive Officer of AB Staffing, “Our entire team answered the call to action during the pandemic and undoubtedly saved countless lives due to their quick action in placing clinical personnel where and when needed.”

Burks added that, “This spirit and sense of duty is a big part of our success over the past 20 years. I couldn’t be prouder of the entire ABSS team as we embark on the next stage of our journey.”
