Healthcare Services

There’s no easy way to understand the challenges facing healthcare organizations: increased competition, consolidation, system integration, ongoing health reform and regulatory uncertainty, patient safety, changing reimbursement models, and more. Great leaders are the key to confronting these complex issues. But not all healthcare recruiters understand what great leadership looks like. As one of the leading healthcare executive search firms - and the only top ten search firm dedicated to healthcare recruiting - Witt/Kieffer has served as trusted advisors to the nation’s hospitals, health systems, academic medical centers, physician groups and other healthcare enterprises for nearly 50 years. Our experienced healthcare recruiters connect with each client's vision, structure and leadership needs. Our consultants recruit CEOs, CFOs, COOs, physician executives, and many other leaders who inspire passion, champion quality and guide their organizations through turbulent times. Integral to every healthcare assignment we conduct are our Leadership Solutions, rooted in an industry-specific competency assessment model which helps to evaluate an executive’s potential for success. Through our WK Advisors division, we expand our capabilities to support organizations in recruiting mid-level and emerging executives. Our Witt/Kieffer International affiliate provides us with a global presence and enhanced ability to recruit exceptional leaders across borders. Not all healthcare executive search firms are alike. Witt/Kieffer, more than others, knows the industry, understands client needs, and recognizes great leadership. Read more about our strengths and capabilities in healthcare in our practice brochure.
