TeamHealth – Why Work For Us?


TeamHealth was founded in 1979 with a vision of developing the best teams of healthcare professionals. With the relentless pursuit to advance patient care through strong leadership, innovation and teamwork, we're proud to say that 35 years later we have made great strides towards our goals.

The impressive growth of TeamHealth should come as no surprise to hospitals and clinicians aware of our reputation for efficiency and commitment to excellence and collaboration.

Originally founded to provide emergency department administrative and staffing services, TeamHealth is one of the nation's largest providers of hospital-based clinical outsourcing in multiple departments, including Anesthesia, Hospital Medicine, in addition to Emergency Medicine. Although we are a national organization, our operating philosophy is essentially the same as when we started. TeamHealth is committed to a patient-centric model of healthcare delivery with hospitals, physician groups and TeamHealth working collaboratively to deliver compassionate, effective, efficient and safe patient care.

More than ever before, healthcare executives today face enormous challenges, including financial performance, healthcare reform, government mandates, safety and quality, physician relations, patient satisfaction, personnel shortages and the uninsured. They've turned to TeamHealth for help.

Executives know they can benefit from our large pool of resources, infrastructure and best practices while maintaining accountability; clinicians know they can take their career to the next level and do what they do best, focus on patient care. All of this is demonstrated by our 97% average annual client retention rate and 93% physician retention rate.

Most importantly, it shows in what our customers are saying:

"What most impressed me about our association with TeamHealth is that they were truly a great partner. TeamHealth is an outstanding organization with quality people who drive great results."

"I knew we selected the right partner for the job. With TeamHealth's expertise and our mutual commitment to excellence, our operational efficiency and the overall morale in the emergency department are the best they've been in years."

With TeamHealth, physicians and clinicians have a variety of facility options. Choose from fast-paced, high-volume Level I trauma centers; leading academic facilities with teaching opportunities; or slower-paced community hospitals. We also offer a host of practice arrangements to fit your lifestyle—full-time, part-time, locum tenens and directorship opportunities.

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at TeamHealth (Syracuse, NY).


    responding to printed ad, received phone call interview from ER director. submitted application and reported for on sight interview. Received tour of facility, dinner for two (spouse included) and invitation to return for trial run of several shifts before committing to full time position. At the end of the interview I was in the locker room with a physician assistant who had been working here for many years. I asked his advice as to whether I should take the job. It was his reassurance that sealed my decision to take the position.
