I just wanted to take a second to say thank you to all of our physicians and healthcare providers.
You’re the reason we do what we do. Because of you, and the commitment of locum tenens providers like you in dozens of specialties, Weatherby Healthcare has been able to impact nearly three million lives so far this year. Sharing that number — and our heartfelt thanks — is a great way to kick off our National Locum Tenens Week celebration for 2017.
Hundreds of dedicated locum tenens clinicians bring expert medical care to underserved areas all across the United States. We welcome National Locum Tenens Week as an opportunity to raise awareness about the vital work you do. It’s because of your dedication, adaptability, and professionalism that we can help such a diverse community of patients to get the care they need and deserve.
Supporting our mission of Putting People First, we’ve aligned with the National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations (NALTO®) for the first-ever National Locum Tenens Week, August 14-18, 2017. This annual event will serve as a platform for the healthcare staffing industry to recognize the vital role that locum tenens doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and allied medical professionals serve in bringing care to communities throughout the country.
Every day, our Weatherby consultants tell me inspiring success stories about the work you do. You’re out there being nimble, filling critical needs, and driving healthcare delivery improvements that benefit everyone. As we begin a week dedicated to honoring you, please accept my personal word of gratitude for continuing to show up the way you do. You make a difference and we want you to know how much it matters to us, to your consultants, and to every life you touch.
As medical issues continue to dominate national headlines, I consider myself extremely fortunate to work with professionals like you, who represent everything that’s right with healthcare.
