How Locum Staffing Can Benefit Your Facility

Utilizing Locum Tenens Professionals Comes With Major Perks for Your Organization

When hiring a permanent surgery specialist, healthcare facilities are forced to pay for additional expenses on top of that provider’s salary, including but not limited to, benefits, signing bonuses, health insurance, and relocation fees. However, staffing with a locum tenens provider can save your healthcare organization up to $300,000 in expenses depending on your facility’s location!

The hiring process for full time surgical professionals also takes much longer than that of a locum provider, which means that as you search for a permanent candidate, your facility loses money due to gaps in patient care, low employee morale, interrupted workflow, as well as cost of lost referrals. With a locum tenens professional, your facility only needs to worry about salary, while we handle the rest!
