Interim Physicians Reaffirms Locum Tenens Leadership with Second Consecutive ‘Best of Staffing’ Diamond Award

Interim Physicians, a trailblazer in temporary physician staffing since its inception in 1979, has once again been honored with “Best of Staffing” Diamond Awards for outstanding service to our providers and healthcare facilities in 2023.

Diamond Award-winning healthcare staffing firms earn special recognition by ClearlyRated, an independent research firm, for securing industry-leading satisfaction scores for five or more years in a row. ClearlyRated utilizes a Net Promoter® Score survey program to help staffing firms measure their customers’ service experience.

In 2023, Interim Physicians received outstanding satisfaction scores of 9 or 10 (out of 10) from 91% of its clients, significantly higher than the industry’s average of 52%. For the second year running, we received zero detractor responses out of more than 100 clients surveyed. Interim received satisfaction scores of 9 or 10 from 73% of placed locum tenens candidates, compared to the average of 50%.

Client Praise for Interim

Client testimonials highlighted Interim’s commendable teamwork, exceeding expectations, and swift credentialing, making us a preferred choice over other agencies for our reliability and efficiency.

  • “Interim Physicians is so easy to work with, especially the credentialing department. I receive frequent updates, and they are on top of all needed items.”
  • “The account management team is amazing! Realistic expectations are always set and often exceeded.
  • They are always available when needed, and the team goes above and beyond to ensure we are covered.”
  • “Interim Physicians is a locum company I would recommend to any facility. Their team always presents the most qualified providers. The credentialing team has always made miracles happen and can get files presented and completed to our medical staff offices in a very timely manner.”
  • Our relationship with Interim remains stronger than ever. I cringe at the thought of working with any other locum agency outside of Interim Physicians.”

Provider Shoutouts

We received so many outstanding provider shoutouts — 100, in fact — that the only way to truly represent the common themes among them was with a visual. In the word cloud below, words that appeared more frequently in provider testimonials appear larger. That’s the Interim way — always working, always responsive, always prompt.

Setting the Bar High in Locum Tenens 

Reflecting on winning both prestigious Best of Staffing Diamond Awards back to back for the first time in the agency’s history, Tim Hand, CEO of Interim Physicians, commended the Interim team for always striving to deliver the best possible service for our staffing partners.

“This recognition affirms the dedication and hard work of everyone on our team. It’s more than just an accolade; it’s a testament to the impact we strive to make in healthcare staffing — to provide healthcare to patients where none may currently exist if not for our providers. The appreciation from our clients and providers is deeply gratifying. As the healthcare sector evolves, this award helps motivate us to continue innovating and maintaining the highest standards in the locum tenens industry.”

Shawn Mullen, President of Interim Physicians, shared his enthusiasm, stating, “These awards demonstrate the commitment to excellence and the personalized approach we take with each of our providers and clients. Our team’s dedication to service is unparalleled, and it’s heartening to see this effort recognized. We pledge to keep setting the bar higher, ensuring the best possible service in the healthcare staffing industry. There are two sets of customers in physician staffing: the client facilities and the providers.  We are proud to be a solid partner for both.”
