Survey reveals competitiveness of recruitment
It wasn’t long ago that only rural facilities had serious problems recruiting physicians. Professional recruiters served more as redistributors helping to move physicians from larger, saturated markets to smaller communities and rural areas that had trouble bringing physicians in, says Jim Stone, managing partner at Medicus Partners, a Dallas-based physician recruitment firm.
Now, physician recruitment is becoming competitive in all settings, and a snowballing physician shortage will make it even more difficult for practices and hospitals in the near future.
