Dear Sycamore Providers and Facilities,
Congratulations - you are one of the earliest adopters of a monumentally disruptive shift in our industry that will forever change how providers and facilities find and work with each other!
I am delighted to introduce myself as the new CEO of Sycamore Physician Contracting. If we haven't met already, I'm looking forward to doing so.
I want to share a few details about why I took this job and where Sycamore is headed.
For the last 15 years, I have worked in product strategy and business development at early stage companies in the software and biotech sectors. Sycamore’s founders and I have been courting each other for the better part of a year now. For me, Sycamore was love at first sight. Having worked in the healthcare/biotech industry, I recognize that there are massive inefficiencies that have resulted in inflated healthcare costs and unacceptable patient outcomes.
Frankly, when I learned about Sycamore, my first question was: "Surely something like this must already exist in the locums industry?!" I was shocked when a rep from a major Locums company blithely told me at a conference that nothing had changed in this industry for over 40 years! My first thought was: "It's about to!"
Two of our core values at Sycamore are Honesty and Transparency - which both, unfortunately, seem to be in short supply in the locums industry. Too many providers and facilities have come to live with the fact that "locums are a necessary evil." Not anymore. Sycamore is a completely open and transparent marketplace designed to remove unnecessary friction for both providers and facilities. We believe the result will be massive savings in both costs and time for all parties.
We have a lot of work to do, but we couldn't be more excited. We know that this revolution in our industry is far, far overdue and a future where locums companies become an unnecessary evil is right around the corner!
Thank you for doing business with us - we look forward to serving you!
