The Delta Companies Honors Healthcare Providers During National Locum Tenens Week

Posted on: 15 Aug 17

DALLAS, Aug. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Delta Companies (TDC), a leading staffing firm for healthcare professionals nationwide, announced its participation in NALTO® National Locum Tenens Week, which recognizes locum tenens providers throughout the second week of August. The week was initiated by The National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations® (NALTO®) to provide the healthcare staffing industry with the opportunity to recognize the important contributions of contract medical providers.

“Locum tenens providers are vital to the economic, physical, and mental health of patients, healthcare providers, hospitals, and communities around the country. Locum Tenens Week is a wonderful gesture and a great reminder of the contribution by these healthcare providers,” said Ty Chambers, Executive Vice President, Delta Locum Tenens. “In 2016, about 6.9 million patients received access to healthcare from the providers we had on assignment. Additionally, multiple hospitals opened new service lines with dedicated staffs, and understaffed and overworked departments were able to achieve manageable workloads.  Locum providers make a difference in the lives of so many. We appreciate the opportunity to work with such talented providers and applaud the difference they make."

As communities around the nation face a physician shortage, locum tenens providers are vital to ensuring the continuity of patient care. From underserved rural areas to high-density metros, locum tenens professionals make a difference by contributing their time and expertise to healthcare providers, facilities, and patients.
