Physician Recruitment & Medical Staff Development

OR Efficiencies Helps You Meet the Challenge of Physician Recruitment

One of the greatest challenges for hospitals wanting to sustain and increase market share is the ability to recruit and retain physicians with the skills, training and personality to attract patients and develop patient confidence. As surgery evermore becomes a minimally invasive discipline, patients’ expectations are that your hospital will have highly trained specialists that are comfortable performing procedures in a minimally invasive manner. Young and growing families settle for nothing less than the finest perionatal, obstetrical, neonatal, and pediatric care.

Most hospitals’ centers of excellence are founded on orthopedic, cardiac, neurosurgery and oncology / oncological surgery and health and wellness programs. Further, a correct balance of highly trained medical specialists, with confidence in a hospital’ surgical staff, is required to generate referrals to surgeons.

For many years, having well trained physicians has been fundamental to garner market share. Today, however, and specifically for hospitals’ surgical programs, the ability to balance anesthesiology staffing with surgical case potential is an ever increasing challenge.

The American Society of Anesthesiology continues to affirm that there is a sizeable shortage of anesthesiologists and CRNAs to staff hospitals’ and ASCs’ programs. Regardless of a hospitals excellence in medicine and surgery, a shortage of anesthesia staff can and does restrict a hospitals’ ability to grow the business.

In efforts to continue supporting our clients’ business development OR Efficiencies, LLC is aligned with a pioneer in physician recruitment and health and wellness programs. The Stanton Healthcare Group (SHG) has continued to be an industry leader since 1972 and is available to assist your hospital’s physician recruitment, medical staff development planning needs and the development of “Health and Wellness Centers of Excellence”.
