US-based AMN Healthcare Services has completed the acquisition of Onward Healthcare, Locum Leaders and Medefis from OGH, for $82.5m.

Both firms announced the deal in December 2014. OGH is a healthcare and technology workforce solutions holding company in the US.

AMN Healthcare president Susan Salka said: "In addition to immediately bolstering AMN’s delivery of candidate supply during a strong demand environment, our recent acquisitions also build on the portfolio of innovative workforce solutions we offer in the marketplace.

"Client reaction to our recent announcements has been very positive, particularly as healthcare executives seek consultative solutions that enable the cost-efficient and effective management of clinical labour."

"Onward Healthcare provides healthcare staffing to hospitals, outpatient clinics, magnet facilities, long-term care facilities and schools."
