Why Locum Tenens Providers Choose to Work With Barton

Get Access to the Best in the Industry


As a leading locum tenens staffing agency, Barton’s recruiters and staffing experts strive to match your specific skills with facilities that meet your requirements. As a healthcare provider, your skills are in high demand. So, what makes Barton the right choice for you?



Recruiters are vital, especially in the healthcare marketplace. Partnering with a recruiter alleviates some of the pressures associated with searching for a locum tenens assignment on your own, such as:

• Reading hundreds of job descriptions and applying to them all on your own.

• Having someone to advocate on your behalf when speaking to the client.

• Obtaining additional credentialing or state licensing (see below) that positions may require.

It’s your recruiter’s core responsibility to find the best assignment that matches both your professional goals and your personal interests, preferences, and lifestyle.



Obtaining hospital privileges and new state licenses (or reactivating lapsed state licenses) can be a time-consuming and challenging part of the locum tenens experience. Nobody likes spending time with tedious paperwork, especially when time is literally money.

When you work with Barton Associates, you’re not on your own. An experienced locum tenens expert will make the process fast and easy by streamlining the onboarding process including licensing and credentialing.

Unsure where you want to take an assignment? Our team can help you get licensed in multiple states, broadening your options for future locum tenens positions.

All you have to do is keep your paperwork organized and easily accessible.



The ability to travel and see new destinations is a major reason our healthcare professionals choose the locum tenens lifestyle. But it’s no secret: Travel comes with its fair share of issues.

You don’t want to get stuck dealing with these headaches when your future patients are counting on you! Luckily, our in-house travel department handles the planning so you can focus on getting to the facility and seeing your patients.

Barton Associates handles all travel-related details, such as:

• Flights, baggage fees, and rental cars.

• Lodging, including pet accommodations

And, if any problems arise while you’re on the road or in the air, we’ll be right there to help you.



Barton Associates maintains high-quality, comprehensive medical malpractice insurance coverage for all the locum tenens physicians, dentists, CRNAs, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants who practice at our clients’ healthcare facilities and practices — absolutely free of charge.
