Happy National Healthcare Recruiter Day

It has been 30 years since Congress declared the first Tuesday in June National Healthcare Recruiter Day. Now, all these years later, we are still seeing new ways healthcare staffing is transforming to serve patients and communities.

At no time has this been truer than during a pandemic. The Floyd Lee Locums team has seen up close how impactful it can be to connect physicians and advanced practice professionals to facilities in need. That is why we work night and day to ensure critical gaps are filled and the care continuum is preserved.


Healthcare consultants like our very own Erica Breeden are leading this charge. Take one of her most recent 5-star endorsements on her support to a provider, which read:

“Erica was warm and personable. I found it easy to be open with her regarding my personal/professional needs for a future assignment. I feel confident in her ability and look forward to working with her in the future.”

Erica and the recruiters like her work whole-heartedly for healthcare providers and facilities alike because it is in their DNA—and the DNA of the Floyd Lee Locums culture. We believe in offering a concierge staffing experience to deliver best-in-class service. Our veteran team of locums experts is why we were named the “Best Staffing Firm to Temp For” in 2020 and 2021.

Credit for that goes to our amazing healthcare recruiters. Our clients feel something different when they work with us. Just take feedback recently received from a provider on our Healthcare Consultant, Ben Russell:

“My experience with Ben Russell has been top notch. Ben checks on me regularly, gives me great advice in this new travel role, and always has my best interest in mind when negotiating on my behalf.”


We know we are lucky to have such a talented and dedicated group of recruiters. The feedback and kudos they continue to receive from clinicians and facilities humbles us. We invite anyone and everyone to take a look at the kind words said about this team on Great Recruiters alone.

In the meantime, we want to repeat our thanks and recognize these outstanding individuals on National Healthcare Recruiter Day. We appreciate you:
