Who We Are

Our Company

Founded in 1979, CHG Healthcare employs more than 2,500 people in eight offices across the United States. The Weatherby Healthcare division of CHG Healthcare is headquartered in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, with a second office in Durham, North Carolina. Weatherby places temporary and permanent healthcare professionals, including physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners in hospitals and clinics throughout the country. These healthcare professionals provide lifesaving care for communities and facilities that need it, often in remote, hard-to-staff locations. CHG founded the physician staffing industry and today is the largest provider in the United States of temporary physician staffing services, commonly referred to as “locum tenens.” CHG placed more than 7,500 physicians on more than 27,000 assignments last year. Collectively, CHG employees placed more than 12,000 healthcare providers who provide healthcare to more than 25 million people in 2016.

Putting People First

CHG’s defining core value is Putting People First. The company believes that if it creates an employee focused culture and a great place to work, the employees not only take care of each other, but are inspired to take care of its customers (healthcare providers and clients) and the people they serve. This people-first culture is CHG’s competitive advantage and a key reason why CHG provides high-quality service to the healthcare professionals and healthcare facilities with whom it works.
