Recruiting A Difference Maker for Your Rural Hospital

Host: Peter Goodspeed – VP of Executive Search, HTS3 Executive Recruiting
Date & Time: April 3, 2020 at 12pm CT

Rural hospitals, just like their urban and academic counterparts, require strong clinical, financial and operational leadership. In some of these locations, bear and elk can outnumber the people. There may not be a Costco, Starbucks or cardiac surgeon for 100 miles. Because of these and other unique challenges many executives may not choose to work in a rural or community setting. 

In this webinar, we will provide an overview of critical access hospitals (CAHs) and rural healthcare in the U.S. We will discuss a process that allows an organization to showcase their position in the community, collaboration with the board and physicians, and how that impacts care provided. This process leads into identifying candidates that can be a fit well beyond their skill set; they would be a cultural fit. They will be a difference maker.


Upon completion of the webinar and through personal stories of our host, participants will understand:

  • The key attributes required in a rural hospital executive
  • How you know if an executive will “fit” in a rural environment
  • How to overcome the instinct of many qualified executives to avoid the challenges of a rural hospital
