About Us

At Phillips DiPisa, healthcare and life sciences executive search is all we do and we do it best. Our years of experience, sector focus and national network uniquely qualify us for succeeding on even the most-demanding executive searches.

Our clients benefit from Phillips DiPisa’s rich experience in executive search.  Organizations engage us time and time again because our executive level expertise, personal attention, sharp focus, and national reach consistently deliver the results they desire.

We manage and oversee every step of the process—from designing the position and evaluating executive candidates, to advising on an offer and negotiating its acceptance. We’re large enough to have the resources, network and expertise to find great leaders for your organization, yet we are small enough for our principals to be involved with every client engagement.

Phillips DiPisa’s portfolio of clients include; Baystate Medical Center, Central Maine Healthcare, Hackensack Meridian Health, Trinity Health, Catholic Health Initiatives, Presence Health, University of Miami, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, GWU Medical Faculty Associates, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Weill Cornell, and Ohio State University College of Medicine.
