Celebrating A Locums Week Unlike Any Other

How 2020 Reshaped the Way Providers Serve Patients

2020 will be a year that changed everything. Not since the Affordable Care Act has there been such a seismic shift in healthcare’s impact. Only this time, it isn’t a law going into effect that is expanding how we think about providers and all they do—it’s a pandemic.

That’s why there’s no better time than National Locum Tenens Week to celebrate all that healthcare providers give to us, our loved ones, and our communities. These healthcare heroes didn’t just answer the call when COVID-19 began spreading, they answered with force—treating tens of thousands across the country.

Now we get a chance to celebrate, thank and praise those who stepped up.

National Locum Tenens Week occurs annually the second week in August. Led by the National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations® (NALTO®), the program’s annual platform provides a forum to collectively recognize locum tenens doctors and the contributions made by staffing agencies to the U.S. healthcare industry.

As Floyd Lee Locums CEO, Natasha Lee, puts it, “There are some of us lucky enough to have not faced a health crisis in the last year. But for those who have—or who have a loved one who has—we know the impact a locums provider has. Whether in day-to-day treatment, consultations or advice, or in those in-between moments, when a provider offers to be a pillar to lean on or a shoulder to cry on.”

These moments are truly something to cheer for. But it’s something Floyd Lee Locums always knew about locums providers nationwide—that amazing people doing amazing things can transforms lives and empower communities. That’s why we join NALTO® in celebrating you, telling your stories, and sharing the incredible ways you impact communities across this country. Thank you and may God Bless you for your sacrifices and service daily on the front lines of healthcare.

Happy Locum Tenens Week!
