Health Carousel Locum Tenens

The Health Carousel Locum Tenens is a locum tenens staffing solution that delivers easier, faster access to a nationwide pool of highly qualified physician and advanced practice providers. Our clients have access to a full suite of locum tenens specialties, dedicated specialty recruiting teams and technology-led recruiting, credentialing, verification and onboarding programs.

What is Locum Tenens?

Locum tenens providers hold the place of a regular physician while they are absent -- derived from the Latin phrase “to hold a place”. Locum tenens physicians and advanced practitioners are highly trained, temporary healthcare professionals. They  move around as needed, cover for other physicians and ensure all patients receive care when healthcare facilities are experiencing staffing shortages. At Health Carousel, we offer physician staffing solutions to provide your patients with top-quality care.

Why Work With a Locum Tenens Staffing Agency?

Better Patient Care
Hospitals and healthcare facilities can offer a broader range of services to patients and ensure optimal, consistent patient care. Locum tenens increases  service delivery, reduces patient time and improves patient care experiences. 

On-Demand Staffing
Healthcare facilities have access to a pool of qualified locum tenens specialties across the nation who can be outsourced to any healthcare facility during a shortage or crisis. 

Overcome burnout
Working as a healthcare provider is a demanding job that often leads to burnout. Using locum tenens providers to cover temporary assignments helps healthcare facilities avoid physician burnout by allowing healthcare staff to take the much-needed time off to practice self-care and relax. 

Provide Business Flexibility
By incorporating locum tenens into the healthcare facility, administrators have the flexibility to assess and restructure service delivery before making permanent changes. 

Flexible solutions

Unlike other top 10 locum tenens companies, we offer our clients flexible physician staffing solutions — full tech, self-service staffing, full-service concierge, or a hybrid — designed around our client and provider’s unique needs.
