Merritt Hawkins: Maintaining Physician Recruiting Efforts in the Wake of Coronavirus

SDAHO Enterprises endorsed business partner Merritt Hawkins provides guidance to hospitals and health systems on maintaining physician recruiting during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The coronavirus pandemic is putting an unprecedented strain on America’s healthcare providers, hospitals, medical groups, and other healthcare facilities.

Amid the many challenges the virus creates is how to recruit the physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other professionals that health facilities continue to need now?

Among its many other negative effects, the virus is causing travel restrictions and challenges that are hindering candidate interviews. Whether the recruiting organization is restricting unnecessary outside visitors, the interviewing candidate’s current employer is restricting their travel, or their family is simply not comfortable traveling at this time, travel challenges are likely to affect most ongoing search efforts.

There are, however, some options to address these challenges.
