Davie, Florida – January 27, 2014 – SBG Healthcare (SBGH), a national healthcare staffing and recruitment firm, announced today the completion of the acquisition of National Locum Tenens (NLT).
SBG Healthcare is a national healthcare staffing and recruiting firm that helps staff physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and healthcare executives. SBGH was first a division of Sanford Barrows Group, which was founded by Drew Seder and Paul O’Keefe. As the healthcare division started to grow, Sanford Barrows Group split the healthcare division off and formed SBG Healthcare, LLC.
SBGH was founded on its core values of Quality, Integrity, and Service. SBGH provides staffing solutions for employers of physicians and advanced practitioners. These core values have helped SBGH build a solid reputation and form a partnership with their candidates and clients. SBGH has focused on quality over volume. They focus on helping candidates seek their full potential in their medical career.
National Locum Tenens was a national physician staffing and recruitment firm that aimed to be the “gold standard” in the industry. NLT created the 5 Star NLT Service program to provide its clients and candidates with the best service.
“NLT was founded to put client services at the center of its business. For more than a decade, I have built my career on first-class client service and meeting the unique needs and requirements of healthcare organizations and physicians across the country. The synergy that SBGH and NLT have had in the past, will help provide SBGH’s and NLT’s clients and physicians with quality and service that is unmatched in the industry,” said Jonathan Simon, Former President of NLT, and new Director of Business Development forSBGH.
Christopher L. Tribe, President of SBGH said, “The partnership that NLT and SBGH have had make this acquisition not only great for SBGH but for all of our candidates and clients. This acquisition promises to keep providing SBGH’s and now NLT’s clients and candidates with SBGH’s core values of quality, integrity and service!”
The American Medical Association (AMA) estimates that there will be a physician shortage of between 85,000 to 200,000 physicians by 2020 if current trends continue. The Locum Tenens industry works to fill those gaps, whether temporary or permanent solutions are needed. At any given time, 30,000 physicians are working as substitute or “Locum Tenens” physicians. A 2011 Survey of Temporary Physician Staffing Trends reported that 85% of healthcare executives have hired a Locum Tenens physician. National Locum Tenens was formed to address these staffing needs – and with both physicians and hospitals in mind.
“We recognize that physicians and hospitals both have unique needs and requirements – and our expanded team has the experience and knowledge to help them fulfill those unique needs,” said Jonathan.
SBGH said it is actively seeking physicians for new temporary and permanent positions across the U.S. and across all medical specialties. The firm promises to deliver “Five Star Service” to physicians and healthcare facilities, which includes 24-7 access to recruitment consultants.
The firm’s offices are located at 7665 Davie Road Extension, Suite 201, Davie, Florida 33024 and further information is available on the company’s website at www.SBGHealthcare.com.
