Delta Locum Tenens

As demand for locum tenens grows so will demand for quality service providers.

Health organizations across the country are facing critical shortages of medical professionals, driving demand for locum tenens firms. But not all medical staffing agencies are the same. Choose the wrong healthcare professionals and it could harm patient care and thus the bottom line. It’s important to contract with a reputable agency that adheres to strict ethical standards. That’s where choosing a firm that is a member of National Association of Locum Tenens Organization (NALTO) becomes crucial.

Why Work With A NALTO Firm?


The relationship between physicians, healthcare facilities, and locum tenens companies can be precarious. Without honesty, professionalism, and integrity it can quickly sour. Recognizing that, NALTO set out to create a set of ethical principles for the locum tenens industry to abide by. NALTO member companies and the medical professionals they represent are required to follow a code of conduct that ensures agreements are reasonably fulfilled, confidence regarding business practices is preserved, and relevant information is disclosed to the physician and client. Working with a non-member firm could mean that company does not follow the same ethical practices The NALTO Ethics Committee is charged with reviewing complaints and violations to ensure member companies meet the highest ethical and quality standards.


The healthcare marketplace is in a state of flux, particularly as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to ravage communities across the country. Rules, regulations, and best practices are ever-changing. Staying abreast of it all is made easier as a NALTO company. NALTO provides its members with training and professional development. It has been a cornerstone of the association for the past two decades and is even more important amid the coronavi­rus. NALTO provides member companies with virtual training throughout the year designed to improve the quality-of-service member firms provide. Through NALTO’s twice annual confer­ences, members get access to thought leaders and industry execu­tives, walking away with deep insight into industry trends and issues impacting the healthcare market to better support clients and healthcare facilities.


Locum tenens play a critical role in our healthcare system, meeting physician shortages that are only projected to get worse. A bad situation is further exacerbated by potential new rules involving worker classification. If locum tenens physicians are no longer treated as independent contractors, it will have a drastic impact on staffing companies, physicians, and the patients they serve. For several years now NALTO companies and the associa­tion have been at the forefront of efforts to highlight the impor­tance of locum tenens to the healthcare system and the need to protect their status as independent contractors. NALTO and its member companies are committed to protecting the industry from regulations that are harmful and hinder the growth of locum tenens staffing.

Your customers are too important to hire just any medical staffing firm. By choosing a NALTO member company you can rest assure you’re getting the highest quality service, provided by a team of ethical professionals. NALTO is recognized around the world for its industry setting standards and focus on progressing and protecting its members. As the shortages of qualified medical professionals gets more profound, NALTO member locum tenens companies will continue to play a critical role in caring for America.


Created twenty years ago, the NALTO’s mission is to develop and enforce stringent industry standards and best practices for locum tenens agencies. When working with a NALTO-member organization you get honesty, integrity, and competency.

We represent short-term and long-term opportunities nationwide that align with healthcare providers’ schedule, skills, and location preferences.
