Date:12/29/2009

SOMERSET, N.J., Dec. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TeamStaff, Inc. (Nasdaq: TSTF), a leading healthcare and logistical staffing provider serving the Federal Government, today announced that it has reached a definitive agreement to sell certain assets of its travel nursing and allied healthcare subsidiary, TeamStaff Rx, Inc. to Advantage RN, LLC. TeamStaff Rx is located in Clearwater, Florida. The transaction is structured as an all cash purchase which is expected to close on or about January 4, 2010. The effective date of the transfer of employees was December 28, 2009. Other terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

TeamStaff's travel healthcare subsidy will be accounted for as discontinued operations when the company reports fourth quarter and fiscal year end results. The company plans to file an extension with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K and expects to report fourth quarter and year end results on or about January 13, 2010.

Commenting on the transaction, Rick J. Filippelli, TeamStaff's President and CEO, said, "The divestiture of TeamStaff Rx will allow the Company to focus on its core business, TeamStaff Government Solutions ('GS'), which provides human capital solutions to government agencies. TeamStaff plans to use the sales proceeds to help fund the development and expansion of GS."

Commenting on the acquisition, Mathew Price, Advantage RN's President and CEO added, "We believe our acquisition of TeamStaff Rx, which includes a strong presence in the Allied segment of Healthcare Staffing, will provide synergy with our Travel Nurse and Locum Tenens divisions to support our vision of providing our hospital clients with a complete solution to their supplemental staffing needs. Additionally, we feel that the industry knowledge, management talent, and existing hospital relationships at TeamStaff Rx will complement our internal team at Advantage RN to meet the industry challenges of 2010 and continue our strong historical growth rate as the US economy improves."
