Jackson & Coker, a prominent locum tenens and permanent placement firm in metro Atlanta, continues to address issues and concerns relevant to major sectors of the health care community. One avenue of addressing these concerns is through interviewing health care leaders for publication of their insights in the Jackson & Coker Industry Report (JCIR).
“In speaking with our hospital administrators, we gain valuable perspective on matters that are of utmost concern to them,” noted Sandra Garrett, President of Jackson & Coker. “The thought processes of those who serve in key leadership roles are particularly insightful for individuals who are influenced by their decisions and actions.”
Recently Michael Lindsey, Senior Recruiter with Jackson & Coker’s Permanent Placement Division, interviewed Dr. Stephen K. Toadvine for the Healthcare Executives’ Insights column in the JCIR.
Stephen Toadvine, MD, MPH, MMM, serves as Chief Medical Officer of Baptist Regional Medical Center in Corbin, Kentucky. In a Q&A format, the doctor discussed his early attraction to the health care profession, role models who influenced his career choices, and particular challenges he faces in providing executive leadership in his current role.

The new design greatly simplifies navigation within the newsletter and access to other Jackson & Coker resources.
