Medicus Healthcare Solutions is honoring locum tenens providers and joining healthcare staffing agencies from across the industry in recognition of National Locum Tenens Week, August 8-12.

Bob Dickey, CEO, shared, “Medicus is thankful for locum tenens healthcare providers. Locum tenens have become an essential part of our medical workforce as many healthcare facilities face provider shortages and burnout.” He shared, “It is inspiring to work with locum tenens providers who are ready to travel whenever a health facility needs their support. It is not easy to adapt to a new work environment – but our providers make it look easy.”

Medicus’ mission is to provide innovative solutions for the gap that exists between patient demand and healthcare services. As the healthcare needs of our population increase, the availability of medical providers continues to decline. Medicus is the bridge to ensure that no patient is left unseen.  Bob said, “Medicus is grateful to have created lifelong friendships with our locum tenens providers and clients. They are the reason we come to work each day and love what we do.”

National Locum Tenens Week occurs annually during the second week in August. Led by the National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations® (NALTO®), the program’s annual platform provides a forum to collectively recognize locum tenens doctors and the contributions made by staffing agencies to the U.S. healthcare industry.
