Health Carousel Announces Acquisition of Vitruvian Medical

January 14, 2021

Health Carousel, a premier provider of healthcare staffing and workforce solutions, announced today that it has strengthened its surgery and anesthesia locum tenens staffing offering with the acquisition of Vitruvian Medical.

Vitruvian Medical, headquartered in Houston, TX is one of the leading Anesthesia-focused locum tenens physician and advance practice staffing companies in the nation. Founded in 2005 by Patrick McDermott, Vitruvian will continue to operate under its own brand in Health Carousel’s growing portfolio of locum tenens brands.

Vitruvian will join the Health Carousel Locum Network (HCLN) as part of its omnichannel offering, where physicians have the option of full-service concierge-style recruiting and placement services, and digital experience options when seeking out temporary assignments. It joins a strong family of HCLN brands, NEXTLocums, Onyx M.D., and Lucidity,  together which are expected to become the 11th largest locum tenens  company in the country, according to the most recent estimates from Staffing Industry Analysts.

“We are excited to welcome Vitruvian Medical to Health Carousel, and to propel our higher purpose of improving lives and making healthcare work better.” With strong leadership, an experienced team, and an attractive culture already in place at Vitruvian, combined with Health Carousel’s investment and the synergy we believe we can achieve through HCLN, we are excited for what we can accomplish together!” - Bill DeVille, Chief Executive Officer of Health Carousel

As longtime leaders in the locum tenens staffing industry, Health Carousel learned how critical it is to understand the specific physician specialty environment in healthcare facilities across the US and the unique talent needs within each specialty.

“Health Carousel Locum Network is designed with a specialty strategy and focus that allows us to deliver staffing solutions specific to the talent needs in each specialty,” said Stacey Stanley, President of Health Carousel Locum Network. “The acquisition of Vitruvian combined with our continued investment in omni-channel staffing solutions further strengthen this strategy.”
