Staff Care Releases 2014 Survey Results of Temporary Physician Staffing Trends
Use of Locum Tenens Rising
Each year, Staff Care, the nation’s leading provider of locum tenens staffing
services and a VHHA Services’ preferred provider, conducts a survey examining
the use of locum tenens physicians nationwide.
Staff Care’s 2014 Survey of Temporary Physician Staffing Trends tracks the
number of hospitals that have used locum tenens physicians over the previous 12
months, why they have used them and what types of physicians are most in demand.
The survey also looks at why these physicians choose to work temporary
Last year, Staff Care’s survey indicated that some 75 percent of hospitals
and medical groups had used locum tenens physicians during calendar year 2012.
By comparison, the 2014 survey shows that 90 percent of hospitals and medical
groups used locum tenens physicians in calendar year 2013 to fill gaps created
by turnover, maintain services while facilities seek permanent doctors and
provide coverage for physicians on vacation or CME.
