New starts or unexpected turnover can be difficult to navigate. Quickly draw from a nationwide pool of high-quality, independent physicians who would relish the opportunity to compete for your business.

Build out your bench.

Avoid expensive, last-minute rates by acknowledging locums as a necessity and planning for it. Build out your own roster of independent locums for relief coverage.

Spend less on locum tenens.

Hire physicians directly and avoid the 25-70% markup that agencies typically charge. Sycamore’s transaction fees and buyouts are the lowest in the industry.

Incentives aligned.

The locums agency model is fundamentally flawed. They are incentivized to charge you the highest rate possible while seeking out the absolute cheapest physicians in order to drive up their profit margins. As a result, you typically pay up to 50-70% more than the physician’s hourly rate.

With Sycamore, you hire the physicians directly, pay the physicians directly, and Sycamore charges a flat rate of 10.75%.* You are able to afford high-performing physicians for much less than you’re paying an agency.

Clients may opt-in to Payroll Services provided by Sycamore for an additional 5% fee.
