RSC Healthcare today announced it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Health Care Staffing Services Certification. The certification demonstrates RSC Healthcare’s commitment to providing qualified and competent health care professionals.

RSC Healthcare underwent a rigorous onsite review on June 18, 2019.
