November was a busy month for LocumsMart. Bob, Keitha and I spent lots of time on the road meeting face-to-face with customers around the country.
Bob, Keitha and I all went to the first Northwest Staff Physician Recruiters (NWSPR) meeting. We love being in Seattle. We don’t get many chances to go to the Pacific Northwest, so despite the tornado-like conditions on the ground, we had a wonderful time! The feedback was positive from everybody on the show—from exhibitors and attendees alike. We really enjoyed spending time with this group, and look forward to deepening our relationship in the future.
LocumsMart’s footprint in the Northwest has been increasing a lot lately. Keep an eye out for future announcements regarding new Facilities from the Western Region coming on board with LocumsMart in 2018.
Keitha also went to Illinois to attend the Illinois Critical Access Hospital Network (ICAHN) conference. ICAHN has been a client of ours for a number of years, and we have a great relationship. I’m glad that LocumsMart had the opportunity to support ICAHN with their conference this year, and on the personal side of things, I’m glad Keitha and Carrie Galbraith had the opportunity to meet face-to-face.
Carrie works really hard helping the ICAHN hospitals fill needs in locales that often struggle with recruiting full-time staff. I think that ICAHN as a group represents an excellent opportunity for LocumsMart Member Vendors to not only make money filling needs, but feel good knowing that they are providing a critical link in the medical delivery chain, and helping ensure that this population has access to care. We look forward to continuing to support Carrie and ICAHN for many years to come.
Karl and Keitha recently met with a new, large customer that will be coming on board with LocumsMart in 2018. They laid out a plan for onboarding their network of Facilities, and Keitha, Bob, and I will be hitting the road in January and February to get all their Users trained. Keep your eyes peeled for new details about this exciting new LocumsMart Member HCO in the coming weeks.
