Empowering Women’s Health: Solving Healthcare Shortages with Innovative Staffing Solutions

Healthcare shortages pose significant challenges across all specialties, especially specialized fields like women’s health. According to the non-profit organization March of Dimes’ Maternity Care Report, 36% of all US counties are designated maternal care deserts (where access to maternity care services is limited or absent). As facilities find ways to provide care amidst increasing patient demand, innovative staffing solutions are instrumental in assuring trusted, quality coverage. LocumTenens.com is equipped with the necessary tools and staff to help facilities build entire departments and receive trusted coverage. 


With provider retirements and a need for call-coverage assistance, one level 2 trauma center was feeling the strain from a critical shortage in its women’s health department. Seeking support for its labor and delivery department, the facility partnered with LocumTenens.com to create an entirely new program. Acting as a bridge to sustain operations until permanent providers were in place, LocumTenens.com took charge of creating the facility's scheduling and call schedule, assigning six providers to ensure complete support.


Taking on the role of the facility’s sole staffer, providers were scheduled for six-month periods to ensure lasting coverage within its women’s health departments. As the leading job board for the locum tenens industry, LocumTenens.com is fully equipped with trusted, skilled providers. More than a short-term solution, we harnesses innovative solutions for facility growth.
