[City, State] – [Date]: [Agency Name] is proud to join the National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations® (NALTO®) in celebrating National Locum Tenens Week from August [dates], 2024. This week is dedicated to honoring the temporary healthcare providers who play a crucial role in delivering medical care across the United States.

“Locum tenens practitioners are the backbone of our healthcare system, providing essential services wherever they are needed most,” said [Agency Executive Name], [Title] of [Agency Name]. “Their dedication and flexibility ensure that patients receive high-quality care, regardless of location.”

Today, more than 52,000 physicians participate in locum tenens assignments each year, serving approximately 7.5 million Americans. These healthcare professionals are instrumental in bridging gaps in care, particularly in rural and underserved communities.

“We are committed to supporting these incredible providers, ensuring they have the resources and opportunities to make a significant impact,” added [Executive Last Name]. “We are proud to celebrate their contributions during National Locum Tenens Week.”

This year also focuses on legislative efforts to address the nation’s physician shortage. The Healthcare Provider Shortage Minimization Act (H.R. 5208), currently under consideration in Congress, aims to expand Medicare-supported medical residency positions by 14,000 over the next seven years, enhancing healthcare access nationwide.

“As we observe National Locum Tenens Week, we acknowledge the vital role of locum tenens providers in improving healthcare delivery, especially in underserved areas,” said [Executive Last Name]. “We express our deepest gratitude for their unwavering commitment to patient care.”

National Locum Tenens Week is observed annually during the second full week of August. Led by NALTO®, this week serves as a platform to recognize the contributions of locum collectively tenens physicians and the critical role of staffing agencies in the U.S. healthcare industry.

Promotional Ideas

​​Build Relationships with Physicians and Clients

  • Tell your story
    • Talk about the impact your locum tenens providers make at medical facilities needing coverage to meet the increasing demand for care.
    • Reinforce your unique identity. What differentiates you from other healthcare staffing firms? Have you been recognized for the customer experience you provide or the culture you’ve created at your company?  
  • It’s an opportunity to thank your physicians and the facilities at which they provide coverage for their loyalty to your business. 
  •  Introduce locum tenens staffing solutions to a broader audience by incentivizing permanent placement business units to present you to new clientele as a trusted source for locum tenens coverage.
  • Choose from the logo suite and incorporate a new design into your advertising campaign. Grab attention with the official NLTW mark, then drive home your firm’s message and distinct brand equities.
