As a locum tenens staffing and recruiting company, part of our mission is to equip healthcare organizations with the resources necessary to improve the lives of their patients.

What does this mean for your IHS (Indian Health Service) facility? Read on to learn more about our IHS staffing experience and solutions.


Barton Associates has extensive experience in staffing for IHS tribal facilities, and is therefore familiar with the unique challenges that you face. Barton is able to help facilities like yours who have the following challenges find and retain healthcare talent:

  • Facilities with chronic staffing shortages, who lack adequate coverage to provide care to communities with high levels of chronic diseases. 
  • Clients in a wide variety of areas, who serve tribal patients who have limited access to other options for quality healthcare.
  • Clients who need a provider who will fit their culture — providing great care to children, elders, and everyone in between.

When it comes to staffing for the American Indian and Alaska Native populations,  we understand the importance of new employees fitting in with your culture. When your dedicated account manager chooses candidates for your review, you can be sure that clinicians are qualified, and have been extensively pre-vetted to be sure that their values, and expectations are an appropriate match for your facility.

Consider this quote from a recent IHS tribal client:

“As a rural, tribal healthcare organization, finding healthcare providers who are mission driven and are passionate about working for the underserved population is a challenge to say the least. Taking this into consideration, the team of recruiters at Barton carefully selected and presented clinicians who fit our mission and values.” 

-Sophia V., Human Resource Manager/ Credentialing Coordinator

Ultimately, Barton Associates understands the importance of partnering with the IHS to uphold the Federal Government's obligation to promote Indian people, communities, and cultures. It is our honor to help protect the inherent sovereign rights of Tribes.
