LocumTenens.com Announces Winner of Best Places to Practice Locum Tenens Contest

Alpharetta, Ga., Feb. 11, 2015—Sanford Health, the nation’s largest rural, not-for-profit healthcare system, has been named the winner of LocumTenens.com’s Best Places to Practice Locum Tenens contest. As the winner, Sanford Health will receive a donation to the charity of its choice.

The company asked physicians to nominate up to three facilities that made a positive, lasting impression during locum tenens assignments. Nominators were asked to rate a facility based on training and onboarding processes, organization of operations, friendliness of staff, technology available, as well as other attributes. Joseph Cree Taylor, M.D., FACS, a urologist from Pollock Pines, Calif., nominated Sanford Health based on his experiences there.

“Sanford provides a complete package of services for physicians,” said Dr. Taylor. “Equipment, staff and the working environment are excellent. The EMR is easy to use and up to the standards required by federal mandate. My work takes me throughout the States and I experience all manner of staffing and equipment, so my opinion is based upon a broad base of different systems. Sanford stands among only a few that meet the standard of excellence in health care.”

"Physicians who practice on a locum tenens basis are in a unique position to share best practices on what makes a healthcare organization great since they visit, work and observe so many different settings," said R. Shane Jackson, president of LocumTenens.com and Jackson Healthcare. "We look forward to using the overall feedback to help our clients get locum tenens physicians up to speed more quickly. We believe this feedback will ultimately help these physicians to be more productive and offer better patient care while serving on locum tenens assignments."
