“The fourth quarter of 2010 appears to be the nadir of the most challenging period in our Company’s history as our revenue expectation is for solid sequential growth in the first quarter of 2011,” said Joseph A. Boshart, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cross Country Healthcare, Inc. “I continue to believe our strategy and operating discipline has put us in an attractive position relative to our major competitors. In particular, our early and internally-developed entry in 2003 into the managed service provider (MSP) delivery model has paid significant dividends for us, especially during this recent demand constrained environment,” he added.
