About CT Assist

CT Assist was started to satisfy the nationwide shortage of experienced, talented surgical physician assistants and nurse practitioners. Surgeons know that a PA or NP is integral to the functioning of the surgical program. PAs have shown to improve patient satisfaction, outcomes, and reduce length of stay. Hospitals understand the value of experienced PA/NPs. CT Assist was created to meet the needs of hospitals and cardiac programs, by providing well-trained, motivated, and professional providers. We satisfy the need in with our locum tenens staff as well as our long-term staffing solutions. Our focus is on providing hospitals with some of the best talent available in the industry. Our PAs and NPs can add to the quality of any program in the nation. We are very committed to providing our client’s patients with the best possible outcomes.

In 2010, Scott Yoder founded Physician Assistant Surgical Associates, LLC (PASA). PASA is a Philadelphia based CT Surgery midlevel provider organization providing the services of the best local PAs and NPs. Their commitment to quality and outcomes has allowed them to quickly gain traction in understaffed market for experienced CT Surgery PAs. With a dedicated organization and staff PASA has been able to improve the efficiency of providing mid-level services. Their large pool of experienced clinicians allows PASA to flex staff up and down based upon the caseload. PASA clients are very satisfied with their services, so naturally the next step was to roll out the product nationwide.

CT Assist was founded in 2013 by Scott Yoder and Jairemy Drooger; and seeks to be the premier locum tenens and long-term staffing provider for Surgical programs nationwide. After several years of growth and numerous customers asking us to provide coverage in other advanced practice specialties, in 2017 we expanded our offerings to include Nursing and Allied Health.

Our commitment to quality and service will allow us to reach this goal.
