Dear Physician Assistant (PA),
In honor of National PA Week, VISTA wishes to extend a sincere and tremendous thank-you to physician assistants everywhere. From October 6-12th, we’re celebrating National PA Week, which recognizes the PA profession and its contributions to the nation’s health. During PA Week, we hope you’ll have the chance to talk to a PA about what it is they do, and why they're proud to do it.
We recognize even if you haven’t been treated by a PA before, there’s a good chance you will in the near future. There are more than 123,000 PAs working across the country—and according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the profession is expected to grow 37 percent between 2016 and 2036.
As a healthcare provider, you’ve followed your passion to help others, solve problems, improve care and change lives. If you serve as a locum tenens professional, you’re helping fill a critical need across the country—giving healthcare teams support and relief when and where they need it most, and creating meaningful connections with patients along the way. Thank you for choosing this career, for your commitment to your practice and for the positive impact you make!
Without locum tenens PAs like you, staffing companies like VISTA couldn’t exist. We’re honored to connect thousands of locum tenens PAs with assignments every year, and are inspired by the stories we gather from locum tenens PAs making a difference. And lastly, we’re proud of the work we do to find matches between quality healthcare organizations and locum tenens PAs. It’s our job to give hospitals, clinics, labs and other facilities the tools they need to care for communities—and help you reap the rewards of satisfying, flexible locum tenens work.
From everyone at VISTA to all the PAs across the country, THANK YOU. Happy National PA Week!
