"Hospitals generally don’t focus on recruiting Advanced Practice Providers-that’s our niche. We have a Human Resources team that recruits highly-skilled, expert practitioners. With our outsourcing model, we’re putting them on our payroll instead of the hospitals’ so they save money by partnering with us."
Greg Flanagan, Chief Operating Officer

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a question about AP Health? See the list below for our most frequently asked questions. If your question is not listed here, then please contact us.

  • What types of practitioners work for your company?

    We employ a range of practitioners to work in a hospital’s perioperative care continuum: Physicians (MD or DO), Physician Assistants (PA), Nurse Practitioners (NP), Certified Surgical Assistants (CSA) and Registered Nurse First Assistants (RNFA).

  • Why choose AP Health to improve our hospital’s perioperative services – versus doing it on our own?

    While your hospital may be an exception, this is a new, advanced, perioperative approach for the vast majority of hospitals which simply do not have the in-house resources to manage and execute. This includes the Clinical Perioperative Staffing, Information Technology, and Perioperative Process Improvement services needed. As a third-party we can bill separately for our Advanced Practice Providers (that are deemed medically necessary according to strict compliance rules) and therefore save you money.
