Recruit Quality Physicians and Allied Health Professionals with Two Key Partnerships

 

Recruitment of a qualified workforce is essential for the health of CHCs and the communities they serve.  It is also consistently reported as a top challenge for CHCs in Region X.  In this regard, NWRPCA is piloting two recruitment partnerships with firms that have proven success in community health settings nationally: Jackson Physician Search and The Delta Companies.

 

Jackson Physician Search

All NWRPCA members receive exclusive, discounted services through Jackson Physician Search (JPS), a data-driven recruitment firm with extensive experience working in rural areas, and an excellent placement and retention track record. Let Jackson Physician Search be your partner in recruiting your future physicians.

 

This new partnership opportunity, brought to you by NWRPCA, offers the following discounted services:

  • An initiation fee of $2,000 (50% off for NWRPCA members): The initiation fee kicks off the search for top physicians by posting the available position at your health center across multiple job boards and online platforms. Physical mailings are not included in the initiation fee.*
  • Sourcing, advertising, and marketing the position: This per-month fee enables the available position to be assigned to a specific recruiter committed to finding the perfect candidate for the job. On average, health centers would spend anywhere between $3,000-$3,500 for this service, but with JPS, you only pay $2,500 each month.*
  • A 30+% discount off the placement fee (originally $22,000), the compensation for successfully hiring a physician and ending the recruitment process for the respective position. This fee is $15,000.*

*Original price points are competitive with market rates.

 

To learn more about this opportunity, contact Rosa E Mitsumasu Scotti, NWRPCA Development Specialist, at rmitsumasu@nwrpca.org  or at 206.519.5049.
