Why Onyx M.D.?


Onyx M.D. is a leader in locum tenens and permanent placement staffing for physicians, mid-levels, and advanced nurse practitioners.  Hospitals and other forms of healthcare delivery systems across the country have responded by becoming increasingly reliant on temporary staffing solutions as both a means to fulfill stop gap coverage and finding a permanent fit. Onyx M.D. was formed to respond to this growing demand and change the industry trend of commoditization of physicians and advanced practitioners.  With healthcare utilization rising at unmatched levels and the onset of the Affordable Care Act in 2014, the physician shortage will only exacerbate, causing extreme imbalance between the demand for services and actual physician workforce supply.


Founded by a Physician 

Onyx M.D. was founded by a physician for physicians.  This gives Onyx M.D. a unique perspective about the challenges that hiring organizations and providers face in finding and retaining quality healthcare providers.  On the other hand, physician leadership means Onyx M.D. is the company with a primary focus on the physician perspective which is too often neglected in the healthcare debate.  Physicians often align with organizations that have their best interest at heart -- We Are That Organization.

Every staff member, regardless of their position at Onyx M.D., has been professionally trained and mentored by a physician, giving our entire team a deep understanding of both Client and Provider needs.


The Onyx M.D. Difference


 1.  Onyx M.D. is the only locum tenens staffing firm founded by a physician for physicians with nationwide reach.


 2. Privately held.  Much of the industry competition is publicly held.  Although there are benefits to being publicly held, we believe that true service cannot be met to the fullest potential with the constraints of the public parameters.  Click here to learn why remaining private matters to our service commitments. Private vs. Public Companies


  3.  Single point of contact.  There is one Onyx M.D. point of contact that manages and directs all staffing needs, requirements, and inquiries.  This may not seem like an advantage on the surface. However, our commitment to the E.L.I.T.E. (enthusiasm, loyalty, integrity, teamwork/trust and ethics) principles to service is fully realized by simplicity, accountability and clarity. Multiple points of contact can cause service challenges and often cause problems when measuring customer satisfaction.


 4.  Business model & culture.  Onyx M.D. operates four departments to fulfill its service commitment and E.L.I.T.E. brand. They include a client, recruiting, account manager and operations departments.  This creates an environment of accountability and team focus as well as a culture defined by our mission and principles. Our strong service oriented culture was recognized in Brad Smart’s newest edition of Top Grading published in August of 2012. “U.S. Physician Staffing Company Onyx M.D. Makes Bold Decision to Restructure”
