Aequor Healthcare Services buys Locum Connections

Piscataway-based Aequor Healthcare Services, a health care staffing and solutions company, announced Wednesday it has acquired Locum Connections LLC.

The acquisition of Atlanta, Georgia-based Locum will help Aequor growth in the physician and NP/APP locum tenens space, it said.

“We are so happy to welcome the Locum Connections team to the Aequor Healthcare Services family,” Manmeet Virdi, co-CEO, Aequor, said. “Sara Gunter and her team have created a high-touch locum tenens staffing platform that has a differentiated service offering and a long history of satisfied clients and physicians. We are looking forward to further expansion of the Locum Connections business.”

Under terms of the deal, Locum will continue to operate out of its Georgia office.

“Aequor Healthcare Services is a powerful Healthcare Staffing platform,” Sara Gunter, director of Locum, said. “By joining with Aequor, Locum Connections can continue not only its growth in hospitalist staffing but further penetrate into other physician specialties, which are becoming harder to harder to staff. In addition, NP/APP demand is growing in the midst of the ever-increasing physician shortage.”

Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

“We are confident that the combination of our two companies is a strong, strategic fit that will better position us to deliver expanded service offerings to our clients and healthcare professionals,” Kamalpreet Virdi, co-CEO of Aequor, said.
