Locum tenens staffing agency

Locum tenens assignments can be a way to ease into retirement, travel, pay off student loans, or serve as a chance for new providers to sample a variety of career paths.

More than 50,000 physicians work locum assignments each year. And 90 percent of U.S. healthcare facilities contract with physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners annually. SUMO Medical Staffing is proud to specialize in locum tenens placement for temporary and permanent positions across the United States.

What we do

SUMO Medical Staffing matches the most qualified physicians and advanced practice providers (APP) with facilities in need of specialties such as psychiatry, anesthesiology, critical care, pediatrics, internal medicine, hospitalist, family medicine, ER/urgent care, and many more. Our, locum tenens providers play a critical role in healthcare today – and will play an even bigger role in the future.

We can help you identify job opportunities and can assist with contracts, credentialing, licensing, payment, and even housing/transportation. If the idea of choosing an agency is intimidating, you can first check to make sure the agency is a member of The National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations (NALTO). SUMO Medical Staffing has been a member since 2015.

Perfect match

Our goal is to match the right candidate with the right position based on the clients’ needs and the candidate’s skills, goals, strengths, and interests. Simply put, SUMO Medical Staffing wants to create a perfect fit between our clients and locum tenens providers. For that reason, we use a criteria-based matching system to ensure compatibility while promoting long-term relationships.

The best locum tenens agencies are those who get to know you personally and understand facility needs. Once they do both of those things, can successfully connect providers and facilities to make sure patients receive the best care possible – and providers experience the best healthcare has to offer.
