Search Process

Providence Healthcare Group has a proven track record of recruiting exceptional pediatric specialists for children’s hospitals and practices throughout the United States. Since there are a relatively small number of qualified physicians in a given pediatric specialty, the competition is fierce. If your organization is about to embark on a search for a pediatric specialist, let the experts at Providence help you identify, engage and ultimately hire your desired candidate.

The ability to be “connected” is critical in the successful recruitment of a pediatric specialist. Providence has cultivated relationships with physician leaders in a broad range of pediatric specialties by garnering the trust of these prominent physicians. We pursue highly recommended physicians who will complement your practice.

Providence identifies prospective candidates by conducting a multifaceted sourcing campaign including a customized email sent directly to qualified physicians, advertising on multiple relevant websites, telephone conversations, and remaining in close contact with training programs. We place an emphasis on identifying physicians who have ties to your region and this approach has resulted in a superb retention rate. Virtually all of our sourcing campaigns are successful and enable us to present well-qualified candidates in a short period of time.

If your organization would like assistance recruiting a pediatric specialist, Providence can help for a fraction of the cost charged by retained search firms.
