Alpharetta, GA (Vocus) July 2, 2010
For the third year in a row, Christa Scollard, a Surgery team recruiter for Jackson & Coker, has been designated as among the top “Recruiters of the Year” by LocumLife magazine. The June issue of the magazine showcases Christa and other 2010 awardees, all nominated by locum tenens doctors in major medical specialties who regularly accept temporary assignments.

“We are pleased that Christa has won this distinguished award again,” Sandy Garrett, the firm’s president, mentioned. “Christa exemplifies the dedication and commitment to customer service that is a hallmark of Jackson & Coker’s mission to serve the health care community with the highest performance standards.”
Each year, the editors of LocumLife invite physicians working with locum tenens firms to nominate the recruiters who have exhibited exceptional customer service throughout the preceding year. Christa received the most nominations from Jackson & Coker’s provider pool in the 2010 competition.
“I’m very honored to have received this award once more and excited that my doctors believe in me enough to submit a nomination,” Christa remarked. “It certainly gives me a sense of professional satisfaction to be involved in all aspects of their recruitment and placement — including credentialing, privileging and scheduling. The doctors definitely appreciate being kept in the information loop and knowing what to expect as the process unfolds,” she added.
Prior to recruiting for Jackson & Coker’s Surgery team, Christa originally worked in the Accounting Department and then marketed for the Oncology and Surgery teams.
“Being well-rounded as Christa is certainly contributes to her success as a senior recruiter,” said Jeff Weir, Vice President of Surgery. “Having worked in different roles for Jackson & Coker enables her to speak comfortably with clients and providers on any matter related to a locum tenens booking,” he noted.
Along with her professional responsibilities, Christa also derives satisfaction from her community and charitable involvements.
On a personal note, Christa remarked: “I am a certified volunteer dog trainer for Canine Assistants, which is an organization that provides services dogs to people with physical disabilities and for seizure response. My mom and her husband train dogs for police work (including drug and bomb search); so working with dogs is something I've always been interested in doing. This is a local organization that allows me to give back to my community through many fundraising events (like organizing “Pumpkin Patches” and helping with golf tournaments) in addition to helping train the service dogs.”
