What can you do?
Hospital Executives must balance many demands within their organization beyond just those of their physicians, but lets face it, operations would be challenged without quality physicians and their teams to care for your community. How can you influence your physicians experiences within your organization? Here are the most frequent physician requests we hear:
- Highly effective and efficient operations that improve their workflows
- Integrated technology that improves workflows and eliminates barriers to providing high quality care for the entire team
- Adequate resources and infrastructure
- Transparent communication and feedback
- Collaboration and team work
- Physician leadership within network decision making
Most hospital executives believe they are meeting many of the needs of their physician groups. Are you confident they would leave your organization a tip or a 5 star review?
Not only does your organization suffer the cost to recruit a new provider, typically around $250K in direct costs, there are two other staggering statistics to be mindful of.

FACT: Physicians trust physicians when making transition decisions. What are your physicians telling their colleagues "off the record" about your work environment?
Is your organization known for its great culture, patient, provider, and staff experiences?
Have you explored what your physicians are saying?
