The High Costs of Hiring the Wrong Physician

By Tony Stajduhar, president of Jackson Physician Search

Making a bad hire in any profession negatively impacts finances and employees, but it’s especially painful in a medical environment where continuity of patient care, cost control, medical staff morale, and productivity are paramount concerns. All told, the cost of hiring a physician who doesn’t fit and then leaves can easily exceed $1 million when you consider the expense of recruiting, onboarding, and yet another vacancy and hiring situation.

We recently wrote an article for the Northwest Regional Primary Care Association about how community health centers can overcome primary care physician recruitment challenges. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Considering that more than 70% of our nation’s Community Health Centers (CHCs) report having at least one physician vacancy, already underserved populations may soon be facing a crisis. As you well know, CHCs provide much more than just primary care services – they have become integral to providing comprehensive care services for millions of residents in America’s smaller communities and rural towns. Today’s ongoing primary care physician shortage is threatening this care, requiring CHC administrators to find more creative ways of attracting and retaining physicians.

In years past, CHCs were able to offer physicians quality of life benefits that were exclusive to community health systems, such as no call, no weekends, and student loan reimbursements. But today, these same benefits are being touted by larger systems and metropolitan hospitals. Now, CHCs have to compete with larger systems that can offer higher salaries and larger sign-on bonuses. With a shrinking candidate pool and diminishing quality of life differentiators, the key for CHC administrators is to ensure that every physician hire is made with retention in mind. The best way to accomplish that is to focus on hiring physicians who are a cultural fit within the organization. First, let’s examine how CHC administrators can make sure their organizations are recruitment ready to hire for fit.

Medical Group Management Association and Jackson Physician Search Partner to Improve Physician Recruitment for Medical Practices

By

Englewood, Colo. and Atlanta (Jan. 27, 2020) – Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) and Jackson Physician Search, a firm specializing in the permanent recruitment of physicians, physician leaders and advanced practice providers throughout the U.S., today announced a new executive partnership designed to help medical practices operate more efficiently, while providing optimal levels of care.

As an executive partner of MGMA, Jackson Physician Search will have the opportunity to work with MGMA members by helping them fill key provider and leadership positions within their medical practices and health systems. As a trusted organization of more than 40 years, Jackson Physician Search implements proven recruitment methodologies and an aggressive, digital sourcing model coupled with personalized service – all of which enable medical practices to operate efficiently and provide quality care. This partnership will serve as a valuable asset to MGMA members, providing them with a dedicated firm whose innovative approach to recruiting has propelled it to become the fastest growing, permanent physician search firm in the industry.

Staffing shortages in medical practices often create precarious situations in which physicians and their teams are forced into picking up slack to help ensure high-quality levels of patient care. Over time, this can lead to a culture of burnout and stress, as well as have negative implications on the overall patient experience due to limited appointment availability and/or a lack of timely follow up on test results, messages and other medical requests.

“In today’s healthcare environment of being faced with a physician shortage and a fluctuating employment landscape, it is more important than ever to align with partners that share the same vision for creating positive change for medical providers,” said Halee Fischer-Wright, MD, MMM, FAAP, FACMPE, president and chief executive officer at MGMA. “Our partnership with Jackson Physician Search will provide our members with a recruitment partner that has a proven track record of filling searches quickly and cost effectively.”

“Quickly recruiting candidates who fit the culture and will succeed in the role is a testament to our commitment to be the only search firm to use an all-digital sourcing strategy,” added Tony Stajduhar, president, Jackson Physician Search. “This allows us to make faster physician and leadership placements and enables our clients to benefit from our ‘Nordstrom-level’ of customer service and the transparent recruitment process and fee structure that they have come to trust.”

“It is an honor to once again be recognized by Modern Healthcare and our associates as one of the best places to work in this field,” said Tony Stajduhar, president, Jackson Physician Search. “We have exemplary associates, and we strive to provide them the best tools, training, environment and culture so they are happy at work.

Newest Physician Salary Calculator Customizes Results, Saves Time

By

A physician compensation resource center, featuring an interactive salary calculator, is the newest resource offered by Jackson Physician Search to help doctors save time as they evaluate how to reach their earning potential. No registration or subscription is required to view instant results.

The mobile-friendly, interactive calculator compiles data from five industry sources, plus propriety recruitment data, to enable physicians in 24 specialties to evaluate multiple variables that influence their potential compensation package.

According to Tony Stajduhar, president of Jackson Physician Search, this new resource is an efficient tool physicians can use to evaluate practice opportunities. “Let’s face it: time and money both matter to physicians. So when it comes to exploring a new job, our resource center can save them time as they consider how multiple variables influence their potential compensation package,” he said.

“Even with data in-hand, we also recommend that physicians talk with industry insiders, experts and advisors to understand what is realistic in a given situation,” Stajduhar added. “Experienced physician recruiters can decode some of the reasons for variances and help a physician negotiate a fair, market-driven package,” Stajduhar noted.

Using the new salary calculator, customizable fields encompass the components that are typically included in a compensation package. The results instantly reveal a market-based scenario that breaks out base salary, benefits, hiring incentives and bonuses. The calculator is unique in its design for use with an offer in hand, or if the physician wants to compare how far their compensation would stretch in a different state or type of community.

Physicians considering a new practice opportunity can:

  • Easily access customized physician compensation data, drawn from multiple sources
  • Drill down by specialty, state and type of location
  • Get instant results and/or request an optional written report via email.

They can adjust for benefits, hiring incentives, and bonuses:

  • Benefits
  • Sign-on Bonus
  • Residency stipend
  • Relocation assistance
  • Student loan repayment
  • Future bonuses for productivity and quality

Jackson Physician Search compiles data from salary surveys published by industry leaders including Health eCareers and Doximity, which draws from self-reported compensation surveys of more than 36,000 physicians. They also incorporate proprietary data, including the firm’s physician placement and search data. Actual compensation will vary depending on additional variables such as skills and qualifications in each specialty, and supply and demand in a particular location. The information does not constitute specific advice for any candidate nor does it guarantee compensation from any organization.

 

In addition to the salary calculator, the new and improved Physician Salary Calculator and Resource Center also features relevant physician compensation articles, videos, and other resources physicians can use.

 

Jackson Physician Search specializes in permanent recruitment of physicians and advanced practice providers to hospitals and health systems across the United States. The company is recognized for its track record of results built on their clients’ trust in the skills of their team and the transparency of their process. Jackson Physician Search attracts and retains the most talented and motivated recruitment professionals in the industry.
