About the Company
Barton Associates is a leading national recruiting and staffing firm that specializes in placing healthcare providers on temporary assignments across the United States.

Temporary healthcare staffing, which is already a 2.7 billion dollar industry, is predicted to grow even further over the next decade as demand for healthcare services is at an all-time high.

About the Industry
The term locum tenens is Latin for “to hold the place of, to substitute for.” In the medical industry, locum tenens physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners are healthcare providers who provide temporary staffing support to hospitals, private practices, and companies.
The locum tenens industry was started in the early 1970’s in Utah to help physicians provide medical health to rural areas of the country. The model proved successful and locum tenens agencies began placing temporary healthcare providers in hospitals private practices, and companies all over the country.
The locum tenens industry continues to grow today. The Affordable Care Act and the aging population have increased demand for medial services. So much so that in 2013, 90% of healthcare organizations used a locum tenens provider at some point during the year to maintain their staffing levels.
At the same time, tens of thousands of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, dentists, and others work locum tenens assignments, taking advantage of the freedom, flexibility, and earning potential that comes with being an independent locum tenens provider.
With so much interest and demand for locum tenens providers, now is a great time to be a part of this rapidly growing industry!

Other benefits - unplanned dress down days, annual holiday party, summer cookout, fitness room, etc.Cons
There can be a divide between the sales staff and support staff, although this issue is known and is continuing to be improved upon. Also, technology is not exactly where it should be, but with a new IT staff, improvements are being made and we are beginning to see some changes in the right direction.Advice to ManagementAdvice
