Physician Search and Consulting

VISTA Physician Search and Consulting provides a full scope of services to help you plan for, recruit, and retain an effective medical staff. Our integrated search services include:

Physician search

No two healthcare organizations are alike, so no two physician searches are alike. We start each search with a comprehensive review of your situation and needs, and then offer a range of services so you get just what you need, when you need it. We make each search a partnership, and base our fees on shared risk, successful placements, and physician retention.

Our services range from "no-retainer" retained searches to staged-payment searches or single-payment searches.

Physician executive search

VISTA Physician Search and Consulting has combined the experience of “in-house”, executive physician recruiters with the plugged-in, far reaching approach of agency recruiters, shortening the time to fill a physician executive post to an average of seven months. We'll vet, interview, and scrutinize candidates, and bring you only quality candidates who are a great potential fit.

Our focused, experienced team works closely with the other VISTA divisions, allowing us to share resources and offer a more cost-effective fee structure. VISTA physician executive searches save our clients an average of $20,000 per search.

We won't nickel-and-dime you on costs and expenses, either. We'll agree to a capped marketing budget up front and deliver targeted products that work. We offer innovative tools that provide extraordinary reach and unmatched focus, including custom recruiting websites and linked email/web campaigns to showcase clients and source candidates; database mining; and job board management.

In-house recruitment consulting

Physician recruiting has become the number-one strategic priority for healthcare organizations everywhere. Has your in-house department evolved to become a resource for all aspects of your organization? Have you tapped the technology, developed the processes, and built the relationships that make your department really effective?

Our Physician Search and Consulting team has decades of experience on your side of the desk. We can help you assess your team, your linkages within your organization, your marketing and sourcing tools, and more to make sure you are as effective as possible. We're very experienced at developing system retention programs as well.

In-house program development

Is your organization just maturing to the point where you need to develop an in-house physician recruiting program? We take an innovative approach to helping you build a program. Based on your needs, our services include recruiting, training, and supporting staff while your program comes on-line, and transitioning a well-functioning program over to your organization when the time is right.

Or perhaps you are faced with a unique physician recruiting challenge, like opening a new cancer center or heart hospital. We can augment your recruiting staff with interim in-house recruiters, agency recruiters, or lead generating sources—whatever your organization needs.

You get the support of a full-service search agency and the integrated approach of an in-house recruiting department. It's an excellent way to pull your administrative team, medical staff, and affiliated physicians into a cohesive medical staff development and retention effort.

Recruitment website development

We will consult with you on the physician portal components of your website and provide recommendations to help the site function most effectively in attracting physician candidates to your open position(s).

In addition, we work with a web development partner that can help you develop your web site from front to back and/or develop a physician portal for recruiting along with other physician-specific areas of interest.

Interim staffing while you recruit

As part of one of the largest physician staffing companies in the country, VISTA Physician Search and Consulting can connect you with Locum Tenens or Extended Placement physicians while you recruit. These physicians can help you ensure continuity and quality of care for your patients, help preserve your referral networks, and generate revenue.

VISTA offers a new, innovative approach to physician and physician executive recruiting. We offer a flexible range of services to make sure that you get—and pay for—exactly what you need, when you need it. We provide consulting and tools to help you make your part of the physician recruiting process as efficient and effective as possible. We base our fees on successful placement and retention. And because we are part of the VISTA family, we can offer immediate staffing assistance through our Locum Tenens or Extended Placements divisions.
