We wanted to create a reward-and-recognition program that shines a light on the vital role the in-house physician recruitment team fills, not only in the growth of the health system, but also in its ability to serve the diverse needs of its community.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 17, 2013
Aymee Quinn, a physician recruiter with Medford Oregon-based Asante Health System, was named a finalist for the 2012 Staff Physician Recruiter of the Year award by the national physician recruitment firm Jackson & Coker.
The award was created to draw attention to the critical and often unsung role in-house physician recruiting professionals play in hospitals across the U.S.
Quinn recruits physicians for Asante Health’s clinics, Rogue Regional Medical Center, Three Rivers Medical Center, as well as the system’s community support efforts. She joined the organization in 2011.
In a recent interview with Jackson & Coker, Quinn said the recruitment of primary care physicians is her greatest challenge, due to a decline in the number of physicians choosing that area of focus. She advises new physician recruiters to pay attention to details and always carry through on promises and commitments made to physicians, especially given the number of practice choices physicians have in today’s market.
“We wanted to create a reward-and-recognition program that shines a light on the vital role the in-house physician recruitment team fills, not only in the growth of the health system, but also in its ability to serve the diverse needs of its community,” said Sandra Garrett, President of Jackson & Coker.
Nominations were made by hospital administrators and physicians through an online survey tool. Ms. Quinn was selected among all nominees reviewed by an independent panel of healthcare executives that included Charles R. Evans, FACHE, President of International Health Services Group, James M. Dixon, President/CEO of HealthSHARE, Donald O’Bryan, CMSR, FMSD, Corporate Director of Physician Recruitment with Mountain States Health Alliance and David Andrick, CMSR/FMSD/FASPR, Director of Physician Recruitment and Relations with Wilson Memorial Hospital. Their decision was based upon the content quality of the nominations submitted, not the quantity of nominations.
In addition to Quinn, Barbara Worthington of Providence Health & Services in Portland, Oregon, Rebekah Driggers of Cone Health in Greensboro, North Carolina and Stephanie Hobson of Scott and White Health System in Temple, Texas were also named finalists.
