MINT PHYSICIAN STAFFING RECOGNIZES NATIONAL LOCUM TENENS WEEK,
IMPACT OF TEMPORARY PHYSICIAN STAFFING ON U.S. HEALTHCARE DELIVERY
Houston, TX: In conjunction with National Locum Tenens Week, Mint Physician Staffing has announced its annual initiative to honor the temporary physicians who provide coverage at medical facilities combating the current U.S. doctor shortage.
Shortly after last year’s inaugural National Locum Tenens Week, the city of Houston and its surrounding areas were severely impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Mint and its roster of local locum tenens physicians played an integral part in the immediate medical response.
As we approach the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Harvey, this year’s National Locum Tenens Week is especially significant as it reminds us of just how important locum tenens physicians are in today’s healthcare industry.
National Locum Tenens Week occurs the second full week in August each year. Led by the National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations® (NALTO®), the program’s annual platform provides the staffing industry a forum to collectively recognize the vital role that locum tenens doctors serve in the delivery of medicine today.
About NALTO® (www.NALTO.org): The National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations® (NALTO®) is the only professional association of temporary physician staffing firms committed to a code of ethics and to maintaining the highest industry standards.
