It is with great pleasure that AmeriStaff Nursing Services announces the addition of two very valuable staff members. Please join us in welcoming Christine Andrews as the Director of Nursing (DON)and Marjorie Bennett as the Assistant Director of Nursing (ADON). Their addition to our team gives us the expertise and support needed to continue our legacy of quality, while leading the industry in patient care.

She has directed over 15 start-up home care agencies in the implementation of Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP) standards. She was previously employed as a DON and is knowledgeable in multiple aspects of health care from administration and billing to clinical and med-surg patient care; all while staying actively involved in continuing education. Chris has been a certified home care coder since 2010. She enjoys treating and educating clients and their families about their medical care, while helping ease the transition from the hospital back to the community. Accepting the position of DON is a task that Chris has undertaken with dedication and capability during this period of growth at AmeriStaff Services.
Our ADON, Marj, comes to AmeriStaff Nursing Services with 25-years of experience in the health care field and 15-years as a Registered Nurse (RN). Marj started out as a Certified Nursing Assistant, then earned her Licensed Practical Nursing degree and later achieved an RN degree.

Looking to the future we are delighted to have Chris and Marj on board here at AmeriStaff. Please feel free to stop by or call the office and say hello to our new AmeriStaff team members.
