Develop a Results-Driven Onboarding Process to Accelerate Physician Success

You may meet every recruiting and hiring goal you set. But if you can’t keep the physicians you hire more than a few years, you’ll never be able to out-recruit your losses. It’s not unusual for a hospital to lose half the physicians it recruits over 5 years. As frustrating as this statistic is on the surface, this attrition is also costly. Consider how much your organization spends to recruit and hire a single physician. Add the cost of a guaranteed salary during the new physician’s ramp-up time. Then, consider the loss of revenue an unfilled position creates. This adds up to a number most hospitals can’t afford to bear. To help we created this results-driven onboarding process white paper.
