Cumming, Georgia, October 19, 2023 — PHHI, a leading healthcare staffing company in the United States, is proud to announce the recent appointments of Ralph Henderson and Brett McClung to its Board of Directors, further strengthening its governance structure as part of its ongoing institutionalization process. Both executives bring a wealth of experience and expertise in the healthcare staffing industry and in integrated healthcare delivery systems, making them valuable additions to contribute to the continued success of PHHI.

Mr. Henderson, with more than 35 years of experience in healthcare and commercial staffing, joins PHHI as the Chairman of the board at a pivotal time for the company to continue cementing its growth trajectory as it expands into new and adjacent markets. Mr. Henderson retired as the President of AMN Healthcare in 2020 after 13 years of continued revenue and profitability growth for the company.

“Ralph is a proven and visionary business leader in our industry, well known and respected for all his work in flexible labor within healthcare”, said Mr. Eales, PHHI’s CEO. “He will undoubtedly play a key role helping PHHI expand its product offering nationwide”, he added.

Additionally, Mr. McClung joins PHHI’s board with over 30 years of experience in the healthcare ecosystem with a proven track record of success leading healthcare delivery systems, as well as health ventures that improve clinical and operational excellence through collaborative strategies producing better health and healthcare. He has held key leadership positions in some of the most respected healthcare organizations in the country, including Texas Health Resources, where he spearheaded initiatives that resulted in market-wide strategic alignment, operational excellence, and recognized employee partnership and retention.

“We are thrilled to welcome Brett to our Board of Directors,” said Chris Eales, PHHI’s Chief Executive. “His deep knowledge of healthcare delivery, in addition to operating models that anticipate emerging market issues, will be extremely beneficial in guiding our group’s strategic direction and helping us continue to provide top-quality nurse staffing solutions to our clients.”

Both executives expressed their enthusiasm for joining Premier Healthcare and contributing to its mission. “I am excited to be a part of PHHI and to work alongside its dedicated team,” said Mr. Henderson. “I believe that together, we can make a significant impact in addressing the critical nursing shortages faced by hospitals and healthcare facilities across the nation”, said Mr. McClung.

Ralph and Brett join PHHI at an important time, as the demand for skilled nurses remains high, and hospitals seek innovative staffing solutions to meet patient needs effectively.

Premier Healthcare looks forward to benefiting from Mr. Henderson’s and Mr. McClung’s expertise as it continues to provide outstanding healthcare staffing services to hospitals and healthcare institutions across the United States.

We are confident that their perspectives and experiences will have a positive impact on PHHI’s growth. Please join us in extending them a warm welcome.
