RALEIGH, NC: Medstaff National Medical Staffing is honoring locum tenens providers in recognition of National Locum Tenens Week, August 14-18.
National Locum Tenens Week occurs annually the second week in August. Led by the National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations® (NALTO®), the program’s annual platform provides a forum to recognize locum tenens providers’ contributions to the U.S. healthcare industry.
This year NALTO®’s Locum Tenens Week is more than an annual celebration of healthcare providers. It’s also an opportunity to support them and the future of our industry by urging Congress to pass the Healthcare Provider Shortage Minimization Act. Currently there are over 52,000 locum tenens providers who care for 7.5 million Americans every day in our country. Locum Tenens Week offers a national stage for us to come together with a unified voice to champion this legislation.
Start now by sending a message to Congress https://bit.ly/3oV7QA3 and protect the rights of locum tenens providers to practice as independent contractors, ensuring that millions of Americans will continue to access healthcare services vital to our communities.
