The Recruitment of Strong Physician Leadership Drives Integration
Integrating physician leadership roles and incentives with hospitals and health systems may be the most important factor in transforming the nation’s healthcare delivery system. Dedicated and experienced physician leaders will be one of the most important factors in improving standards of care, taking costs out of the system, and driving clinical innovation.
Witt/Kieffer has an impressive track record in finding experienced chief medical officers (CMOs), chief clinical officers (CCOs), clinical department chairs, medical directors, and other physician leaders on behalf of hospitals, health systems, integrated delivery systems, physician group practices and other organizations.
