Allied Health History
Allied Health Services has an extensive reputation for being a quality provider of Nurse Staffing and Health Care Personnel for hospitals all over the Greater Houston area. It was founded by Helen J.

The initial staffing focus was on providing Specialty ICU nurses who supplemented the staffing in Critical Care units of several major hospitals in the Houston Medical Center. In 1988, Allied Health Services expanded services to provide additional health staffing in other nurse specialties (Pre-operative, Operating Room, Post Anesthesia Care Unit, Medical Surgical, Telemetry, and Emergency Room).
Since 1987, Allied Health Services has continued to grow as one of the most reputable staffing agencies in the city for hospital, clinics, and outpatient surgical centers.
