My SHC Story: Finding My Voice

Today, healthcare organizations are paying closer attention to their organizational culture and branding. This is important for several reasons. One reason is that physician staffing carries great costs when it is not successful. Research shows that hiring the wrong physician can cost a healthcare system $1 million or more in lost revenue, reduced efficiencies, and organizational time. Many unsuccessful hires are due to the candidate not being a good fit culturally. These staffing lessons are..

Why It’s Time for You to Find an MSP Solution
The worst position to be in for any healthcare organization, is when more resources are dedicated to hiring and onboarding than patient care.
