Save Time and Money
BY STAFFING A LOCUM TENENS PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT
Staffing with a locum tenens provider could save your facility $300,000 in expenses depending on your facility’s location! When you hire a permanent physician assistant, you are forced to pay additional expenses on top of their salary. Some of these expenses include, but are not limited to:
- Signing bonuses
- Health insurance
- Relocation fees
Not to mention the hiring process for a full-time provider takes longer than that of a locum. This means while you are candidate searching, you are costing your facility money via gaps in patient care, interrupted work flow, low employee morale, and cost of lost referrals. When you bring on a locum tenens provider, all you need to worry about is the salary.
