Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 10, 2012 Barton Associates, a national Physician and Nurse Practitioner locum tenens staffing agency, announces plans to establish dedicated Pediatrics staffing teams in four national staffing centers located in Boston, Massachusetts, Hardwick, Massachusetts, Enfield, Connecticut, and Jupiter, Florida.
Barton Associates is excited to announce the creation of dedicated locum tenens Pediatrics staffing teams. These teams will serve clients nationwide and will be staffed with a mix of experienced primary care recruiters and account managers, as well as new hiring beginning in January 2012. Barton Associates forecasts significant growth in the Pediatrics staffing market due to a variety of factors, including the Physician shortage and federal health care reform.
The national Physician shortage is expected to have a substantial impact on Pediatrics and related sub specialties, especially in rural areas. The number of Pediatricians and Pediatric subspecialists completing training is not increasing at the rate needed to meet demand. Barton’s Pediatrics locum tenens team is in agreement with the commonly held view that the shortage will peak in 2020.
National healthcare reform will result in millions of newly insured Americans beginning in 2014. It is expected that this reform will increase demand for preventative and acute care Pediatric services from those who may have otherwise visited an Emergency Medicine Physician or urgent care (walk-in) healthcare clinic.
“Barton Associates recognizes that Pediatric locum tenens staffing is a specialized, unique, and growing market,” said Robert Indresano, President & COO, Barton Associates. “We are very excited to have the opportunity to develop dedicated, highly skilled Pediatrician staffing teams that will allow us to provide the level of service our clients demand and help the market manage increased demand for Pediatricians and Pediatric Nurse Practitioners.”
Barton Associates is committed to being a leader in the Pediatrician locum tenens staffing industry and to providing high quality, fast, and efficient services throughout the United States. Barton Associates provides locum tenens staffing solutions and locum tenens jobs across many medical specialties, including Anesthesiology, Dermatology, Emergency Medicine, Hospitalist, Internal Medicine, Internal Medicine Subspecialties, Neurology, Pediatrics, Primary Care, Psychiatry, Radiology, Surgery, and many more.
