CHG Healthcare Buys VMS-LocumsMart

CHG Healthcare, the second-largest healthcare staffing firm in the US, has acquired LocumsMart, a vendor-neutral locum tenens vendor management system. The deal was announced Wednesday; details were not disclosed.

Founded in 2008, LocumsMart has ongoing relationships with more than 2,000 hospitals and clinics and nearly 100 locum tenens agencies. The company is headquartered in Atlanta and has 25 employees.

“The acquisition of LocumsMart VMS enables CHG Healthcare to strengthen its delivery of  workforce solutions to its broad base of healthcare clients,” said Amy Chang, healthcare analyst at Staffing Industry Analysts. “As the nation’s largest locum tenens company, CHG is well-positioned to spur the continued adoption of workforce solutions in the physician staffing industry.”

LocumsMart will remain a standalone brand in the CHG family of companies.

Salt Lake City-headquartered CHG employs more than 3,000 people throughout the United States. Its five healthcare staffing companies — CompHealth, Weatherby Healthcare, Global Medical Staffing, RNnetwork, and Foundation Medical Staffing — place more than 15,000 providers worldwide, serving 28 million patients each year.

CHG also acquired Modio Health, a cloud-based credentialing and career management solution for healthcare providers and organizations, in 2019.
