Many equate interim healthcare management to travel nursing or short-term allied health contracts. And, conceptually, it’s very similar. A hospital or healthcare facility looking for temporary staffing solutions seeks out the help of a medical staffing agency to fill their vacancies to provide continuity of care for their patients.
However, staffing for interim leadership roles at the managerial, directorial, or executive levels carries a larger weight. The candidates who fill these roles are decision-makers. They set the tone and model the culture in your facility. And they serve as mentors for your teams.
Most likely, you’re considering interim leadership as an option because you understand how crucial it is to not rush permanent replacements for critical roles like department heads and executives. In fact, according to a Department of Labor statistic, the average cost of a bad hire could be upwards of 30% of their salary!
That’s where a solution like interim healthcare management can help. A trusted medical staffing agency, like CoreMedical, can provide you with a vetted, experienced leader in the short term while your organization takes the time it needs to find the perfect permanent replacement for the role. Or, if short-term coverage is all that’s needed in a leader’s absence, they can provide a tenured healthcare manager that will keep your department on track.
Even still, you may be wondering, “Why should we partner with a staffing agency rather than looking for interim candidates ourselves?”
