ACCS

American Critical Care Services

“Nurturing relationships in healthcare with a faith-based perspective as a local Woman/Nurse owned and operated business.”

IT BEGAN IN 1986…

With the entrepreneurial vision of Carolyn McCrocklin, RN, an ICU nurse at a local hospital, recognized a need for supplemental nurse staffing. With courage, perseverance, and a lot of hard work, ACCS was born. To make a long story short, ACCS has been serving its community with excellence in nursing ever since. ACCS has been a nurse owned and woman owned company since inception and is still going strong in 2022.

Today, Dr. McCrocklin continues to model her company with impenetrable integrity and energy. She has always been sound in her conviction to practice excellence in every initiative she undertakes. She is an experienced and robust nurse leader with an eye for best practices.

As a healthcare company positioned at the epicenter of Covid-19 pandemic, ACCS like everyone, has had to pivot and re-adjust to a different healthcare landscape. One thing continues to ring true though; and that is our steadfast commitment to operate with the core mission to provide the highest quality, best nurses possible to those who need them. In today’s healthcare environment, it takes a village as well as home-grown local experts with an unwavering commitment to their community to face daily challenges head on. That is what sets ACCS apart from the rest.

Over the years, ACCS has certainly left its mark as one of the oldest and most trusted nurse staffing companies in the Commonwealth of Virginia serving not only our Hometown of Richmond, Virginia but also North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.

The ACCS team of experts has always and continues to be wholly and thoroughly committed to every client, every facility, and every nurse in the past, in the present and in the future. No matter the situation that you may find yourself in, or the place you want to go, ACCS can help get you get to the exact spot where you want to be.

Lorie

Director of Clinical Operations

CLINICAL OPERATIONS

My nursing journey began in 1995 as a new graduate RN. Since then, my career has included many important experiences. One over-reaching theme that continues to excite me is being able to help children and their families get the care and information they need to achieve their best life possible through education and knowledge building. I strive to be a resource to all families and to assist folks who may have special situations that require extra coordination. The authorization process and onboarding for private duty nursing can be tedious and complex and I’m here to get it right for each and every step of your journey.

American Critical Care Services is not just a place I work, its my family. Working in the hospital staffing division for the past 14 years, I’ve established close relationships in all the facilities we service. I am highly motivated to interview and place nurses knowing that the facilities will have cream of the crop nurses. I really love hearing the feedback from the hospitals where our excellent nurses give their best to care for their patients.
