Quoting Management: “While our fourth quarter revenue was in-line with our expectations, our results were affected by a variety of factors that combined to result in a loss from continuing operations. Excluding the impact of the aforementioned professional liability expense, our successful efforts to improve our gross margin sequentially, primarily in our nurse and allied staffing segment, delivered results more rapidly than we had expected,” said Joseph A. Boshart, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cross Country Healthcare, Inc. “Currently, open orders for our travel nurse staffing services are significantly above the level of a year ago. Reflecting the stronger demand environment, bill rates increased in the fourth quarter, which aided in the expansion of our bill-pay spread,” he stated.
