Date:11/20/2009

Jackson Healthcare® is pleased to announce its agreement with VHA Inc., the national healthcare network, to deliver multispecialty physicians for locum tenens (temporary substitute) assignments and permanent physician placement.

Alpharetta, GA (Vocus) November 20, 2009 -- Jackson Healthcare is pleased to announce its agreement with VHA Inc., the national healthcare network, to deliver multispecialty physicians for locum tenens (temporary substitute) assignments and permanent physician placement.

Through two Jackson Healthcare-owned companies, Jackson & Coker and LocumTenens.com, VHA’s member hospitals will have access to hundreds of thousands of physicians in every major medical and surgical specialty. Jackson & Coker, providing locum tenens and permanent physician placement, offers a broad range of physician specialties, while LocumTenens.com focuses on the niche specialties in critical hard-to-fill areas. These two companies will work with VHA to improve the clinical and economic performance of community hospitals across the U.S.

With more than 30 years of experience providing clinical solutions, Jackson Healthcare’s combined approach will broaden VHA’s portfolio of services to create valuable products and benefits for their members. In addition to exclusive discounted pricing, VHA members will also have free access to special programs and subscriptions.

For Jackson Healthcare, this agreement will provide support and recommended access to additional VHA members to further service fulfillment, encourage collaboration, share best practices, as well as provide Jackson Healthcare’s physicians with expanded locum tenens and permanent opportunities.

“The VHA collaboration is exciting because our company’s goals and culture closely align with those of VHA and its members,” said Rick Jackson, chairman and chief executive officer of Jackson Healthcare. “While helping VHA hospitals better serve their patients through increased access to quality physicians, I am confident we can deliver the standards of quality and customer service VHA members have come to expect.”
