LocumTenens.com Launches New Neurology-Focused
Veteran Recruiter Alison Westemeier to lead the team
Alpharetta, Ga., March 21,
2013-LocumTenens.com, a full-service locum
tenens staffing agency and leading industry job board, has
launched a new team focused on helping connect neurologists with
healthcare clients in need of a locum tenens provider.
Although the company has placed neurologists since 2009, the new team will focus specifically on the specialty. The Neurology team will be led by Alison Westemeier, vice president and a staffing veteran who has been with LocumTenens.com since 2004. In 2007, Westemeier was named Recruiter of the Year by Locum Life Magazine. Prior to this role, Westemeier served as director of the company's psychiatry division and also helped to launch AdvancedPractice.com, another Jackson Healthcare agency and job board that focuses on the recruitment and placement of physician assistants and nurse practitioners.
"Demand for neurologists continues to grow, and the American Academy of Neurology estimates that supply will fall 20 percent below demand by 2020," said R. Shane Jackson, president of LocumTenens.com. "Having an established talent pool of neurologists who work as locums physicians will be critical to ensuring patients have access to quality care. Alison and her team will continue to dedicate themselves to connecting neurologists with the hospitals and healthcare facilities that need their services."
Like other LocumTenens.com divisions, the Neurology team will offer personalized service and attention to physicians. Each LocumTenens.com associate will handle all the time-consuming details of working as an independent contractor, allowing the physician to focus on patient care. LocumTenens.com provides healthcare facilities access to thousands of neurologists across the country, and with one of the most stringent credentialing processes in the industry, only the highest-quality neurologists are placed in open positions.
