Tony Stajduhar, President of Jackson & Coker Permanent Placement, commented: “Jackson & Coker is honored and thrilled that CHA has chosen our firm as its preferred provider for permanent physician placement services. We look forward to offering an innovative recruitment approach as part of our contractual relationship with hospitals throughout Colorado concerning such an important endeavor as physician recruitment.”
“This partnership will allow CHA to provide a full range of physician recruitment and placement services for our member hospitals and health systems,” said Steven J. Summer, CHA President and CEO. “Colorado is an attractive state for physicians, and having the ability to conduct a strategic national search will allow our members to match key positions with top-notch talent.”
The partnership will enable Jackson & Coker to make information available on recruitment strategies to CHA members and otherwise help to inform in-house hospital recruiters on successful strategies for identifying highly qualified physician candidates for full-time positions.
“Having lived in Colorado for 21 years, I couldn’t be more pleased to partner with such a great organization. CHA has demonstrated consistent expertise and service to its members, and access to products and programs that add value to their business operations -- all of which help to make healthcare more affordable and hospitals more efficient,” Mr. Stajduhar mentioned.
