Whether due to a scarcity of candidates or hoops those candidates and their prospective employers have to jump through in order to meet state regulations, it takes a long time to bring a new healthcare provider on board. In fact, according to an article newly published by Becker’s Hospital Review, only employers in consulting, finance, and engineering have to look longer than the 59.5 days (median) it takes to hire a new provider. Bringing a new manager on board is only marginally faster (57.7 days, median). And if you need a new human resources professional, you can expect to make a hire within 50 days. Locking into an efficient process and knowing what you’re looking for will surely help. To that end, read How to Hire Your Next Urgent Care Manager in the JUCM archive.
