How we serve our care providers
We believe every one of our care providers is a healthcare hero. You’ve got a whole team dedicated to ensuring you feel valued, appreciated and cared for every step of the way. Our team knows that staffing is about so much more than filling a position—it’s about the people who make it possible.
How we serve healthcare facility partners
We understand that staffing is about more than just filling a position. We make sure that every care provider we send to facility partners have the best training, qualifications and are dedicated to providing care worthy of a million smiles.
How we serve our corporate employees
We work hard to retain top talent through a culture that nurtures success, develops careers, encourages communication, and maintains a high code of ethics.
We’re on a journey…
We began our Journey to a Million Smiles in May of 2021, and smiles have been shared and celebrated by the Amare team every day since the launch. We’re always working to provide care worthy of this “smilestone” and we even have a mascot – Miles A. Smiles
