Locum Tenens Urgent Care Physicians & Advanced Practitioners
Many of today’s health systems are including on-site and stand-alone urgent care clinics in their short and long-term plans, reflective of the drive for convenient, patient-centered care that also keeps non-emergency cases out of the ER. Thus, urgent care physicians, nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs) are increasingly in demand, and employers are seeking to fill temporary locum tenens urgent care jobs to keep their walk-in clinics running smoothly.
Statistics from the American Academy of Urgent Care Medicine show1:
- There are currently 20,000 physicians in urgent care settings;
- There are approximately 9,300 walk-in, stand-alone urgent care centers in the United States;
- Urgent care clinics are undergoing a growth spurt, with approximately 700-800 new clinics opening every year;
- Only 29% of primary care physicians have after-hours coverage, so these walk-in clinics fill an important void; they can also save money and lessen patient wait times compared to an ER visit for non-critical cases.
