Case Study

Locum Tenens Coverage Keeps Facilities Running Through Thick & Thin

Two facilities. Five weeks to staff. One hurricane. D&Y covered it.


D&Y was presented with the opportunity to staff two Florida facilities within a very short five week window. It was essential that these departments were staffed appropriately to ensure they would remain open.


Staffing requirements mandated four physicians per day at each facility to secure uninterrupted coverage. D&Y recruiters worked diligently through our extensive database of qualified physicians. Seventeen physicians were presented to the client within 10 days of first being notified. D&Y’s team worked closely with the client to ensure all credentialing requirements were finalized in time for start date.


A few months into the contract, these facilities were faced with the threat of Hurricane Matthew. Ultimately, D&Y’s physicians remained committed to the shifts needed resulting in no loss of coverage for either location throughout the event.

36 days

Time elapsed from date of contact to placement


D&Y’s close partnership with our client ensured that all information received was communicated accurately and quickly to all involved, resulting in timely fulfillment of the required staffing needs. In the six months following the start date at these hospitals, D&Y locum physicians have covered a total of 180 shifts, and we continue to staff their locum needs.
