CHG Healthcare acquires Salt Lake City-based locum tenens firm

August 25, 2016

CHG Healthcare Services, the second-largest US healthcare staffing firm, acquired Salt Lake City-based Global Medical Staffing.

The transaction closed August 24; terms were not disclosed.

Global Medical Staffing will remain a stand-alone brand. Its CEO, Robert Stringham, will remain with the firm temporarily as he transitions out to his preplanned retirement.

Global Medical Staffing places physicians in locum tenens assignments in healthcare facilities worldwide. Founded in 1994, it initially placed American and Canadian doctors in Australia. The company now staffs doctors in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, the South Pacific, the Caribbean, Canada and the UK. The company recruits doctors from the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.

“CHG and Global Medical Staffing share a commitment to placing high-quality providers who deliver outstanding patient care, as well as a passion for making a difference in the world,” said Mark Law, chief operating officer of CHG. “Bringing GMS into the CHG family allows us to meet the growing need for physicians in the US and abroad.”

CHG operates two other locum tenens companies, Salt Lake City-based CompHealth and Weatherby Healthcare in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. CHG also owns two nurse staffing companies, RNnetwork in Boca Raton, Fla., and Foundation Medical Staffing in Edmond, Okla.

Global Medical Staffing counts an internal staff of more than 50 people in its Salt Lake City headquarters.

CHG employs more than 2,200 people in eight offices in Utah, Florida, North Carolina, Connecticut, Michigan and Oklahoma.
