LocumTenens.com Expands Service Lines to Include Primary Care
Date:7/8/2009

Physician recruiting firm expands into specialties of internal medicine, family practice, pediatrics and hospitalists.

Alpharetta, GA (Vocus) July 8, 2009 -- Physician recruiting firm LocumTenens.com has announced its expansion into the high demand specialties of internal medicine, family practice, pediatrics and hospitalists - specialties often referred to collectively as primary care. Traditionally a niche agency specializing in physician and CRNA staffing for anesthesiology, psychiatry, radiology and surgery specialties, LocumTenens.com has added the primary care specialties to better serve client needs.

According to the US Bureau of Labor and Statistics primary care represents over 35% of active physicians, comprising the largest category of physician specialties. Despite the relatively large population of doctors, this is also the area with some of the greatest need for more physicians.

Leaders from the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the American College of Physicians (ACP) and the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) recently reported to Congress that the number of medical school graduates choosing a primary care specialty is at an all-time low of 17% - at a time when demand for primary care is growing rapidly.

Recognizing the increasing need for supplemental primary care staffing, LocumTenens.com has expanded its service lines to include staffing and recruiting for primary care in order to better meet the needs of hospitals and healthcare facilities nationwide.

"LocumTenens.com's strategy is to build specialty teams that provide unparalleled levels of service in their area for our clients. Due to the success of our existing service lines, our customers have asked us to expand into these new service areas. We will take the same focused approach to the primary care specialties as we have to our existing four specialties," said Shane Jackson, president of LocumTenens.com.

"As our nation is considering reform to our healthcare system, it is clear that the shortage of primary care providers must be addressed. LocumTenens.com works with our customers as strategic partners and our primary care division will allow our customers to utilize locum tenens staffing services as a strategic tool in solving their primary care needs, just as we do in our existing specialties."

Don Robb, a veteran healthcare staffing executive, is heading up the new LocumTenens.com primary care division which will be headquartered in Dallas, Texas. Robb brings over 15 years of experience in healthcare staffing.    

"(By adding primary care) LocumTenens.com is not only working to meet the growing needs of the industry, but also deepening the relationship with our existing clients," said Robb.

LocumTenens.com is currently recruiting and staffing for its primary care needs, including internal medicine, family practice, pediatrics and hospitalists. For more information, please call 1.800.562.8663.
