Englewood, Colo. and Atlanta
(Jan. 23, 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 United States, 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.”
