AMN Makes Foray Into Pharmacies With Acquisition

A North County staffing agency specializing in health care workers made itself a little bit healthier this week with a $17.3 million acquisition.

AMN Healthcare Services Inc., based in the Del Mar area, northeast of where Interstate 15 and state Route 56 meet, announced May 21 that it is acquiring Denver-based Rx Pro Health Inc. and Pharmacy Choice Inc. for $17.3 million, which includes an initial purchase payment and potential additional earn-out payments through 2009.

Rx Pro Health and Pharmacy Choice provide pharmacy staffing, work force technology solutions and online educational services to hospital-based and retail pharmacies and pharmaceutical companies. AMN, founded in 1985, staffs travel nurses and physicians, as well as other allied health care professions.

“Rx Pro Health is an innovator and leader in the pharmacy staffing industry and its addition to the AMN organization fits perfectly into our strategy of continuing to offer the most comprehensive clinical staffing solutions to our clients,” said Susan Nowakowski, president and chief executive officer of AMN Healthcare.

Rx Pro Health will continue to operate under the same brand as well as keep its Denver headquarters.

AMN trades on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol AHS. Its stock closed at $22.01 on May 21, up 50 cents for the day.
