Aequor acquires Atlanta-based locum tenens staffing firm

Healthcare staffing provider Aequor Healthcare Services LLC acquired Locum Connections LLC, a locum tenens staffing firm based in Atlanta.

“We are confident that the combination of our two companies is a strong, strategic fit that will better position us to deliver expanded service offerings to our clients and healthcare professionals,” said Kamalpreet Virdi, co-CEO of Aequor Healthcare Services.

Plans call for Locum Connections to continue operating out of its Atlanta office.

The deal will enable Locum Connections to continue its growth in hospitalist staffing as well as further penetrate into other physician specialties, according to the companies. And plans call for the Locum Connections brand to remain.

Terms of the transaction were not announced.

Aequor is based in Piscataway, New Jersey. The company sold a majority stake in itself last September to private equity firm DW Healthcare Partners; Aequor founders Kamalpreet Virdi and Manmeet Virdi retained a significant equity stake in that deal.
