Redefining physician recruitment

Dedicated to
Improving Outcomes

Our Vision

To be the market leader of physician services delivering unparalleled experiences to our partners, clinicians, and patients.

Our Core Purpose

Synergy is dedicated to the success of our partners, employees, and clinicians with actionable solutions and quality care innovation.

We Believe

High-quality patient care is driven by high-quality clinicians supported by experienced clinical executives in efficiently managed hospital environments

Our collaborative and engaged clinician and hospital partnerships are driven by a strong commitment to patient care. We know the importance of listening to our clients’ needs, and strive to make each service line a center of excellence in the local community. We strive to build lasting hospital partnerships to sustained growth and performance excellence.

Scale. Presence. Partnership.

We offer the agility and accountability you need for success


Synergy Health Partners is not a locum tenens agency, and our approach is different than large, national healthcare staffing companies. While we have a national footprint, we recognize that healthcare is delivered locally. We prioritize a regionally customized, ethical approach that’s always centered on exceptional patient care within the specific communities we serve.

With 140+ hospital clients, we have broad access to a nationwide network of superior clinical providers. Our services are scalable, so we can support your organization’s growth and success.

Our Values


Honesty means always being truthful and straightforward in our dealings with healthcare professionals, hospital partners, employees, and ourselves. Honesty demands integrity in our conduct, a true moral compass, and adherence to the highest ethical standards of our professions.


Our obligation to accept responsibility for our actions. It is walking the walk, not just talking the talk, and being able to defend our words with outcomes. Accountability is the act of not just saying “trust me,” but “here is proof that we performed as promised.”


Excellence is committing to the highest standards, to which we hold ourselves and others accountable at all times.

Founded on Experience

Focused on Success

We are physician-founded, and our executive team has decades of experience in hospital-based staffing, healthcare administration, and service line performance management.

Synergy Health Partners is the result of the June 2020 strategic organizational consolidation of Synergy Surgicalists and EA Health.

  • Synergy Surgicalists, one of the nation’s top providers of orthopedic and general/trauma surgicalist staffing for hospitals, was surgeon-founded in 2012.
  • EA Health was physician-founded in 1992, as an innovative provider of specialty physician on-call services. EA Health has served Sharp Health (San Diego) emergency departments for almost two decades.

The consolidation has positioned our organization to provide comprehensive hospital-based performance solutions.



I have been working for Synergy Health Partners for over five years, and it is the best decision of my career. I am able to provide excellent patient care, and have achieved a true work-life balance. When I am on shift, I am able to focus on my patients, their care, and their needs. When I am off shift, I know that my partners are providing the same level of care. This teamwork and partnership allow me to enjoy my time off and return to work ready for another shift. By finding this work-life balance, I believe I now deliver better care to my patients at work, and am a better partner at home.

Synergy Health Partners has provided excellent service to our hospital for many years. As the physician advisor for our hospital’s Synergy Health Partners’ Specialty On-Call program, I rely heavily on the extreme detail and accuracy of their data, the timeliness of their response to questions, and their personal involvement in helping to solve many of our physician back-up issues.
