Who We Are
Legacy Physicians brings together hospitals and the physicians they need to provide efficient, effective patient care.
Corinne Rao, M.D.
Founder & CEO
Legacy Physicians is owned and managed by board-certified Internal Medicine physician Corinne Rao, M.D. For more than 20 years Dr. Rao has advocated for high-quality patient care as a hospitalist physician and through many hospital administrative leadership positions. Dr. Rao is intimately familiar with hospital physician staffing needs and knows well the impact that appropriate physician staffing can mean for patient care. As the COVID-19 pandemic raged, Dr. Rao launched Legacy Physicians to help hospitals solve their staffing challenges and reduce their high costs related to large staffing and recruiting agencies. At the same time, we choose to empower physicians by finding them opportunities to enjoy practicing medicine and decrease stress, burnout, and fatigue by being able to have schedules with flexibility.
As the Legacy Physicians story begins its hospital partner client roster is growing rapidly and its bench of experienced hospitalist physician providers is deepening. Every day Legacy Physicians is helping more patients achieve positive outcomes.
Whether you need staffing solutions or you are a physician ready for a new challenge, we welcome you to come grow with us.

Hospital Physician Staffing Solutions

As an experienced physician who has worked in many different settings, Dr. Rao understands that hospitals have unexpected staffing needs due to illness, maternity leave, or sabbaticals. Sometimes, temporary coverage is needed while recruiting for a permanent physician, while other times, there is a need to add to existing coverage during patient volume surges.

I am an Emergency Physician and worked with Dr. Rao for several years at Mercy Lebanon where she was a Hospitalist. It was always a pleasure to work with her. Dr. Rao is professional and courteous, I was always glad when she was on because I knew my patients would be well taken care of in the hospital.
