Provider Spotlight: Dr. Mandel, ER Maverick & Locum Tenens Physician

Re-Introducing Interim Physicians: Celebrating a Legacy, Embracing the Future

The Interim Physicians team is excited to announce the debut of our new website and brand identity. With a renewed spotlight on our unique history and a vision for future growth, our reimagined branding represents who we are and positions us for continued success in the post-pandemic era.

Delivering Locum Tenens

Interim Physicians was born out of a passion for improving healthcare access and delivery. As a pioneering locum tenens staffing firm founded in 1979 by Dr. Ken Teufel, Interim Physicians co-created the locum tenens industry, ushering in a new healthcare staffing model.

Dr. Teufel recognized the need for a flexible staffing solution to meet the demands of a rapidly changing healthcare landscape. His devotion to providing high-quality temporary physicians to American healthcare facilities in need laid the foundation for our pursuit of excellence. Our beloved “Dr. Ken” sadly passed away in December 2021. Still, his visionary leadership and passion for quality care while serving as our medical director for more than 40 years inspire us today.

A Future Past

Our new brand identity visually expresses our embrace of the future while remaining rooted in our past. With an elegant, minimalistic look and feel, our new branding features the smiling portrait of our gentle founder alongside modern imagery and typography that symbolize our contemporary approach to healthcare staffing. Friendly illustrations of physicians throughout our site and in marketing materials evoke a sense of warmth, compassion, and approachability. With these elements, we create a welcoming brand experience that will resonate with both locum tenens providers and healthcare facility clients.

Our “Hire” Calling

This brand identity isn’t just about aesthetics – it also reflects our quality focus. Our new tagline, “Quality Care, Quality Assignments, Every Time,” makes our long-standing adherence to the highest standards of physician recruitment, exceptional customer service, and superior patient care explicit. 

The tagline serves as a reminder of our mission and core values, encapsulating our goal of continuous improvement in every department of our organization. And it guides us in our qualification process in hiring additional staff to our team.

All Systems Go

After notching record business growth in 2022, and solidifying our position as one of the largest locum tenens companies in the country, we have no intention of slowing down; in fact, we’re putting the pedal to the metal.

“Our new brand marks an important moment in our journey,” said Interim Physicians CEO Tim Hand. “As we continue to expand and enhance our services, we are proud of our identity, which reflects our rich heritage and positions us for accelerated growth in the years ahead. Our commitment to providing unparalleled temporary physician staffing solutions remains unwavering, and our refreshed brand signifies our investment in innovation.”

Resource Allocation

Alongside our new brand and website, we’ve expanded our online presence to provide a robust library of resources for both locum tenens physicians and healthcare facilities that rely on their coverage. Our resource center offers valuable insights, industry updates, career guidance, and informative articles, empowering our partners with knowledge to make informed decisions and navigate the ever-changing healthcare landscape.

Building on Our Success

With the launch of our new identity, Interim Physicians solidifies its position as a trusted leader in the locum tenens industry. As we forge ahead, we remain steadfast in our mission to provide quality healthcare where none would otherwise exist without us. Our new brand and website stand as a testament to our dedication to continuously evolving and adapting to the changing healthcare landscape.
