New Clinical Workforce Companies Complement Healthcare IT Leaders

Locums Choice offers temporary physician and provider staffing (a.k.a. locum tenens) for health systems, hospitals and medical groups seeking short-term and contract hires to fill staff vacancies. Target specialties for the new firm include surgery, anesthesia, radiology, hospital medicine and IM subspecialties.
Bailey’s partner at Locums Choice is staffing executive, Will Drescher, current CEO and founder of The Crevalle Group, a Salesforce-focused workforce solutions company. The two previously founded Locum Leaders, a successful locum tenens agency acquired by private equity in 2013 and now part of AMN Healthcare.
PAC Leaders is a physician-led, medical management company delivering high-quality, protocol-based patient care in Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF). The company deploys full-time nurse practitioners utilizing clinical pathways and decision support technology to improve outcomes and reduce variability and costs in post-acute care (PAC) settings.
Bailey’s co-founders and partners at PAC Leaders are physician entrepreneurs with deep experience in clinical management solutions, Robert Harrington, MD and Boykin Robinson, MD. Dr. Harrington was the former Chief Medical Officer at Locum Leaders.
Bailey says the combined resources of Healthcare IT Leaders, PAC Leaders and Locums Choice offer health system executives a suite of complimentary staffing solutions.
