The Need for Strong Physician Leadership

Integrating physician leadership roles and incentives within hospitals and health systems may be the most important factor in transforming the nation’s healthcare delivery system. Dedicated and experienced physician leaders are one of the most important factors in improving standards of care, taking costs out of the system, and driving clinical innovation.

Witt/Kieffer has a long track record of finding experienced chief physician executives, 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. Our search professionals with clinical and administrative backgrounds understand what healthcare organizations need in physician leadership roles.
