Federally Qualified Health Centers

Providence Healthcare Group recognizes the mission of Federally Qualified Health Centers to provide high quality medical care for patients in need. We understand that FQHCs compete in the physician recruiting marketplace without the huge recruiting budgets found at large hospitals and healthcare systems. Providence addresses this issue with a deeply discounted fee structure for these facilities.

We recruit highly qualified practicing physicians as well as residents from excellent training programs to FQHC facilities throughout the United States. We not only target the National Health Service Corps scholar pool, but we also heavily recruit non-scholar physicians as well. Each year, we identify the providers that are in need of student loan repayment and view the FQHC as an ideal practice setting. Providence also targets the residents and practicing physicians that have ties to the state where the FQHC is located. In short, we have positioned ourselves as an ally to Federally Qualified Health Centers seeking assistance with recruiting in the following areas:

  • Primary Care Physicians
  • Mental Health Physicians and Providers
  • Physician Assistants
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Allied Health Providers

Providence Healthcare Group is proud to support the FQHC mission to improve the health of the nation’s underserved communities and vulnerable populations. By assisting in recruiting top quality physicians and providers, we enable patients to access comprehensive, culturally competent, quality primary health care services.

Advanced Practice Providers

Since 1995, Providence Healthcare Group has successfully recruited Advanced Practice Providers (APP) throughout the United States. APPs have become an integral part of the healthcare delivery system. By the year 2025, it is estimated that there will be a shortage of over 150,000 Advanced Practice Providers throughout the United States. Providence is committed to meeting the needs of our clients in this crucial area.

Our APP fee structure is well below the national average and our replacement guarantee is among the best in the industry.

APPs not only provide exceptional patient care but also afford many practices an outstanding revenue source. Our search consultants can assist in determining whether your practice will benefit from an Advanced Practice Provider.

Healthcare Executive Search

Providence Healthcare Group has extensive experience recruiting superior healthcare executives throughout the United States. Our search process encompasses the most effective aspects of a fully retained executive search for a fraction of the cost. Unlike other search firms that charge a percentage of the signed candidate’s starting salary, Providence charges a flat fee. This allows our clients to cap their costs and also adjust the starting salary without affecting the search fee. Our executive search agreement is simple and there are no additional fees or hidden costs.

Providence recognizes that many healthcare organizations are fully capable of conducting their search internally. Unlike other healthcare executive search firms who will not work in conjunction with in-house recruiters, Providence offers a “hybrid” fee structure that provides assistance with the time-consuming aspects of the search such as the screening of initial candidates. This allows an organization to manage the search internally and streamline the recruitment process.

Our leadership team has over 50 years of experience performing a broad range of executive searches. Our experience and expertise enables us to recruit the best candidate for your opportunity in the shortest time frame possible. In addition, the vast majority of executives placed by Providence are still employed with the same organization.

Our search process includes:

  • Working with senior leadership or hospital board of directors to determine search parameters.
  • Conducting multifaceted sourcing campaign aimed at generating qualified candidates in a timely manner.
  • Accessing an extensive network of highly qualified healthcare executives who will consider making a change for an exceptional opportunity.
  • Assisting with identifying and evaluating prospective candidates.
  • Performing a “pre-screening” questionnaire to eliminate marginal candidates which saves our clients time and money.
  • Assisting with negotiations and finalization of a contract.
