DRi is an approved member of the American College of Healthcare Executives’ Executive Search Firm Network.
Our firm has delivered executive search services to non-profit healthcare organizations for nearly 20 years. In 2019, we joined forces with the former Managing Director of the American Academy of Physician Assistants’ (AAPA) Center for Healthcare Leadership and Management in order to help these organizations operate at the leading edge of systemic staffing solutions in the ever-changing healthcare system.
Healthcare organizations utilize DRi’s executive search services for three key staffing needs:
1. Medical Leadership at Hospitals and Clinics
The staffing needs of hospitals and clinics have changed markedly over the last two decades, as the Advanced Practice Provider (APP) workforce has transformed Americans’ access to healthcare. As the physician shortage grows to a projected 121,300 over the next decade, and patients continue to demand cost-effective and flexible care, organizations face increased pressure to strategically build and effectively manage their APP workforces.
DRi’s Healthcare Search Practice is designed to help non-profit healthcare organizations stay ahead of these trends and build teams that optimize the deployment of APPs in their healthcare delivery systems and continue to expand the scope of innovation in healthcare delivery. APPs provide high-quality care, enhance patient satisfaction, and increase patient access which are critical to improved healthcare delivery.
2. Healthcare Association Leaders
Associations are a key part of healthcare delivery networks in the U.S., providing support that is directly and indirectly critical to caregivers on the front lines. Healthcare associations:
DRi’s Healthcare Search Practice synthesizes our expertise in association management and the breadth of our healthcare networks to recruit senior association leaders who can mobilize innovation across all of these inter-related strategies. We recruit Executive Directors and senior leaders in all functions, from membership to finance to research.
3. Healthcare Fundraisers
Healthcare fundraising is a unique enterprise that requires delicate relationship-building with a vast range of stakeholders, from academic researchers to grateful patients and their family members. Fundraisers who build these relationships support a wide array of programs, from training opportunities for caregivers to cutting-edge and life-saving research.
DRi’s Healthcare Search Practice identifies fundraisers with the sensitivity, versatility, and passion to support all healthcare system stakeholders, whether they are patients, front-line clinicians, or academic researchers. Our executive search consultants draw on our expertise as development consultants to attract the most talented candidates and deliver nuanced assessments of them.
