Favorite Physicians, a division of Favorite Healthcare Staffing, joins their family of healthcare staffing services to offer locum tenens staffing nationwide. Favorite Physicians provides a full range of locum tenens services with dedicated placement consultants, as well as 24/365 support for both physician and client needs.
Specializing in the areas of Family Practice, Hospitalists, Internal Medicine and Psychiatry, Favorite Physicians provides locum tenens contract assignments ranging from one week to a year or longer. Client partners include regional healthcare systems, rural hospitals and clinics, private group practices, and government medical agencies.
A privately-held company, Favorite Healthcare Staffing currently provides a broad range of healthcare staffing professionals and services. According to Kathy Perry, President, the time seemed right to add Favorite Physicians to complete the full menu of services Favorite can provide to client facilities. “We are excited,” said Perry, “ to have Favorite Physicians join our family of offerings. Along with Favorite Healthcare Staffing and Favorite Managed Services, we are able to provide a complete spectrum of healthcare staffing services to our client base.”
The American Medical Association (AMA) News reports that as baby boomers age, the nation will experience a critical physician shortage. In fact, the AMA projects that 78 million baby boomers will begin to cross the 65 year threshold beginning in 2011. Wanda Dearth, Vice President of Favorite Physicians, notes this shortage is especially evident for rural Family Practice needs. According to Dearth, “Locum tenens staffing is an excellent option for doctors choosing early retirement due to cuts in insurance, Medicare and Medicaid. Instead of full retirement, locum tenens contracts allow physicians to semi-retire or continue practice without the headaches of maintaining a private practice.” Dearth continues, “It’s a great way for physicians to travel, seek new career positions, explore new locations, and turn their jobs into careers with adventure!”
Some of the benefits Favorite Physicians provides its doctors include generous pay, customized travel and accommodations, short and long-term contract options and occurrence liability insurance. Clients enjoy the benefits of securing their revenue streams, covering vacations, CME, FMLA and other leaves of absence, advantages in recruitment and much more.
