The National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations (NALTO) has announced the appointment of Joseph Matarese, CEO and Founder of Medicus Healthcare Solutions, to its board of directors. Matarese has over 23 years of experience in the healthcare and information technology services industries.
“It’s an honor to be elected to work with NALTO. I’m excited to work on advancing the locum tenens industry and its high standards,” said Matarese.
Matarese founded Medicus Healthcare Solutions in January of 2004 on the principle that there had to be a better way to deliver consulting and staffing services to healthcare clients. His innovative approach to providing physician staffing and operational consulting services to hospitals and clinics has revolutionized the industry. Matarese is a frequent contributor to industry conferences and often speaks at industry-wide events on various healthcare and staffing topics.
Formed in 2001, NALTO primarily serves to educate the healthcare industry on the benefits of locum tenens staffing and to establish a set of service standards among locum tenens companies. The association also provides a system for sharing resources among member organizations, offers a formal dispute resolution process through an arbitration committee, and aids all members in cultivating market growth.
