LocumTenens.com Honors Two Physicians for Charitable Service with MedicalMissions.org Physician of the Year Awards

ALPHARETTA, Ga., Feb. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LocumTenens.com announced today that Dr. Darius Maggi, a retired OBGYN from Denison, Texas, and Dr. Todd Crump, an emergency medicine physician with Lexington Medical Center in Columbia, S.C., have been selected from more than 150 nominated physicians as the company's second annual MedicalMissions.org Physicians of the Year for international and domestic service, respectively.

More than 150 physicians were nominated for the annual awards program that honors physicians who donate their time to help underserved people in the United States and abroad gain access to critically-needed healthcare services. As part of the award, LocumTenens.com will donate to the West Africa Fistula Foundation on behalf of Dr. Maggi and to the Free Medical Clinic of Columbia, S.C. on behalf of Dr. Crump.

Dr. Darius Maggi was selected for his work with female fistula patients in Bo, Sierra Leone, which began in 2002. Since then, he has made 39 trips to the country to help women suffering from a debilitating and painful gynecological condition that occurs after periods of long, obstructed childbirth because cesarean sections are unavailable. The women are usually shunned from their villages and families as a result of the condition, which makes them incontinent. Through the West Africa Fistula Foundation that Dr. Maggi founded in 2004, more than 1,500 women have been helped through corrective surgery, as well as giving them a place to prepare for surgery and recover. The clinic also teaches women to sew, giving them a skill that can help them support themselves upon recovery. To learn more about the West Africa Fistula Foundation, please visit the website.

Dr. Todd Crump began volunteering with the Free Medical Clinic in Columbia, S.C. in 1997 while in medical school at the University of South Carolina. He regularly volunteers at the clinic which serves more than 7,000 uninsured patients who would otherwise go without care. Dr. Crump serves as the medical director of the Free Medical Clinic and also assists with fundraising activities. To learn more about the Free Medical Clinic, please visit the website.

"Dr. Maggi and Dr. Crump are shining examples of the special work physicians are doing around the world to help patients gain access to care," said R. Shane Jackson, president of Jackson Healthcare and LocumTenens.com. "Dr. Maggi is helping women who have been cast aside by society, and Dr. Crump is helping in his own backyard to make sure that uninsured patients in Columbia S.C. don't go without needed care. We are happy to select them as 2014 MedicalMissions.org Physicians of the Year, as they perfectly represent the work physicians are doing across the country, often without recognition, to help patients who need care."

LocumTenens.com has made a commitment to supporting medical missions work and increasing healthcare access in underserved areas, sponsoring and recruiting physicians for several medical brigades annually, and also by operating the website medicalmissions.org, which helps connect trained medical volunteers with organizations sponsoring medical missions all over the world. In 2013, more than 21,000 mission opportunities were posted by thousands of mission-focused organizations from around the world. More information about the 2014 MedicalMission.org Physician of the Year honorees is available on the LocumTenens.com website.
