How well are you selling your facility?

I just read an interesting article in Managed Executive Healthcare about ways to improve your methods for finding new healthcare talent. There were a lot of great take aways, including evaluating talent beyond technical skills, understanding the real reasons people are leaving your hospital and interviewing properly. You can read it here, but one area that really stuck out to me was the emphasis on improving your ability to sell your facility.

The need to do this is one of the reasons that we have structured our system to have one dedicated client manager for each hospital. Not only does this help them sell your facility to nurses and allied health professionals better, but even the part of the country you are located in.

The article talks about how being strong in this area can give your facility a real advantage in the healthcare recruiting war. Some simple steps you can take if you work with Medical Solutions is to be sure to send your Client Manager any marketing materials about your facility or the surrounding area so they can convey that to our Recruiters.

Patrick Fuerstenau here. Born in Kentucky, raised in Germany, landed in Nebraska and still here. I've been involved with Marketing and Advertising for over a decade. It all began with an internship at an ad agency in Omaha, followed by a 9 year stint as a graphic artist at the lone major newspaper in Omaha. A friend of mine told me about an opening at her company and said that it was the best gig she's ever had... So I decided to spread my proverbial wings and see what I could do for them and vice versa. So here I am at Medical Solutions and am going on my 3rd year as a Marketing Specialist for a great travel nursing company. This by far has been a major blessing in my life. I love the work I get to do just as much as I love the people who make up this fabulous company. I can see myself here for a long time... As long as they'll have me. Now that we've got the career timeline out of the way... Let me tell you a little about who I am. I am oh so passionate about the game of futbol! I've been playing soccer since the age of 8 and am still playing today. If I couldn't at least kick the ball around, I don't know what I would do with myself. I fear getting old. I also have a strong love for the arts... Music, Visual arts, Film, Design... pretty much anything and everything arty. I'm happy go lucky and am always looking to have a good time. Just ask my manager! And I love writing about travel nursing.
