American Surgical Professionals, a surgical staffing company, announces the launch of two additional services for the operating room; Outsourcing Solutions and Locum Tenens.

“A common theme we continue to hear from facilities’ managers and administrators is the tremendous pressure to reduce the cost of care,” said Tom Kirk, CEO, American Surgical Professionals. “In addition, they frequently reference the challenge of finding qualified ancillary personnel to staff the operating rooms. This customer input was the impetus for making the investment in establishing these new professional services. ”

Outsourcing Solutions can reduce operating costs by 25-40% without sacrificing the quality of care. The savings are achieved by transferring the mid-level hospital staff to American Surgical Professionals who can generate efficiencies by leveraging staff, improving flexibility to adjust to changes in case volumes and simplifying administrative procedures. Mid-level staff includes Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners and Surgical Assistants.

Locum Tenens is a commonly used term in healthcare and addresses short term staffing needs for circulating nurses, surgical technicians and scrub nurses at hospitals throughout the United States. American Surgical Professionals helps fill vacancies with highly trained and skilled professionals.
