Extensive specialties

Hayes is more than just a physician recruitment agency. We recruit physicians and advanced practice clinicians in more than 50 medical specialties, including but not limited to, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and certified registered nurse anesthetists.

Dedicated team

While your dedicated consultant is your main point of contact, our entire team is committed to developing long-term relationships, delivering exemplary levels of service, and working to find the right candidate to meet your needs:

Specialty-Specific Team Recruiting

Hayes consultants work on dedicated specialty teams, becoming experts in their field. Each team creates strong relationships with current healthcare providers and searches for new candidates daily.

Risk Management

Our experienced quality assurance team conducts a detailed review of each candidate to ensure the physicians and advanced practice clinicians we offer are of the highest caliber in their field and the right match for your facilities. Unlike many healthcare recruitment agencies, Hayes also has a licensed risk manager who provides feedback and works directly with our physicians and clients should any adverse event take place on an assignment.

Credentialing/ Licensing

Our credentialing and licensing teams support your processes, assist in handling paperwork, including Provider Enrollment and serve as liaisons between state medical boards, your credentialing team, and the healthcare providers.


From flights to rental cars, housing and beyond, our in-house travel team ensures everyone arrives on time and ready to work. We take the time to understand each candidate’s preferences, so the time spent at your facility is a smooth and comfortable experience.

Hayes Locums made the process and travel extremely easy and even enjoyable - and are always available to help should any issues arise. I have since recommended using Hayes Locums to my junior fellows and general surgery residency friends.

Vascular Surgeon

My consultant has been amazing to work with. He is responsive, always available, and truly works towards my best interest.

Pediatric Gastroenterologist

Everyone at Hayes has proved to be both helpful and honest. When dealing with employees at other locums firms, the sense is often the very opposite.


My consultant is wonderful to work with. She is responsive, helpful and cheerful without being intrusive or pushy. I am so appreciative of all her hard work to get me placed!

Hayes will under promise and over deliver 99% of the time.

Physician Recruiter

Hayes is easy to work with. Good recruiters who know how to recruit and are informed of your needs. Not pushy.

My contacts at Hayes have all been responsive and attentive—and kind. Each one of them has made sure I never was left waiting or wondering, often working with me after hours or through a hurricane or within days of having a new baby. Their professionalism and humanity are inspiring.

Pediatric Gastroenterologist

My consultant has really made my experience working for Hayes great. He is incredibly motivated and goes above and beyond to help me find the positions I am really looking for and makes sure that every step of the process goes as smoothly as possible.

I have had nothing but positive experiences working assignments through Hayes in the past few years.

Hayes is very easy to work with and they go above and beyond to make sure we have coverage when needed!

Practice Manager

A medical recruitment agency is sales. In order to make a sale, one has to be persistent, often proactive and sometimes aggressive. I'm an MD and am just as aggressive in identifying people I want to work with and weeding out those I don't in the locums world. People who complain about getting calls and emails may or may not realize the nature of the work that goes into making a sale from the other side. My personal experience with Hayes has been exemplary, but it is indeed very dependent on whom you work with and what you're looking for in this line of work. The people I have worked with at this company to secure an assignment are professional and courteous; they follow through tirelessly (from recruitment, licensure, credentialing to travel) and go out of their way to make sure I have a positive work experience. There is an insane amount of preparation and paperwork and follow-up that go behind the scene just so I can walk into the hospital and turn on my pager on day one. I have talked to probably close to a dozen companies; some recruiters come across as glorified used car salesmen, some keep banker's hours and are nowhere to be found past 4pm, and some try to save a buck by asking me to pay for my own licensing fees when they would take a 30% cut if I went on assignment with them. All in all, it is a highly individual journey as a clinician who navigates through the locums world. The folks at Hayes have provided the best consumer experience and exceeded my expectations. So, they deserve 5 stars from me.

Neurologist Physician
North Carolina

I have greatly appreciated all of the hard work Hayes, especially my Consultant, have done to help with all of the credentialing, making the travel arrangements to fit my schedule, and just being available to listen to my goals/desires for employment. All of these choices maximize my experiences and job satisfaction. I can't say enough good things about my experience with locums and with my consultant and Hayes.

Obstetrician Gynecologist

I could not have asked for a better first Locums experience. Hayes had contacted me years earlier when I was a military intensivist and kept in regular, polite contact once or twice a year while I focused on my military career. After leaving active-duty service, I had a gap of several months before starting a teaching position. I reached out to Hayes and they placed me at a wonderful community hospital in Western NC. Everything about working with Hayes was great; from the prompt, personable care provided by my Senior Consultant to credentialing and day-to-day logistic care. When I had to leave the hospital to get to work at the University, I was sad to leave the assignment and sad not to be working with Hayes any more (at least for the moment). I would recommend Hayes without hesitation to any colleague looking for the best in a locums relationship.

Overall the Hayes team has done an excellent job. I never feel pressured to take an assignment, and when I do accept an assignment they do an excellent job arranging travel and lodging.
