Sound Physicians, a national hospital staffing firm based in downtown Tacoma, has leased space in a new building on Pacific Avenue.
The Tacoma office employs about 150 people to support more than 2,000 workers across the country. Sound Physicians manages hospitalist, critical care and skilled nursing care for nearly 190 hospitals and close to 100 skilled nursing facilities working in conjunction with these hospitals in 34 states, according to a news release.
The company, founded in 2001, will be moving from its current offices at 1123 Pacific Ave. to the Umpqua Bank building, at 1498 Pacific Ave. It signed an 11-year lease, said the news release, dated Friday.
“Downtown Tacoma is becoming a more vibrant city with a nice mix of local offerings for our colleagues with shorter commute times and lower costs than in Seattle — it has been a great place to grow our organization,” said Dr. Rob Bessler, CEO, in the release.
Sound Physicians also has affiliate businesses supported from its Tacoma location, the news release said, including Echo Locum Tenens for interim provider staffing, Resonant Physician Advisory Services for secondary case review for hospitals and The Intensivist Group, providing critical care physician services and management to Intensive care units within hospitals.
