Executive Search Best Practices: Selecting a Healthcare CEO

Leadership transitions are inevitable in healthcare and related fields which have seen tremendous tumult in recent years. When the board of a hospital, health system, medical center or other organization determines that it needs to recruit a new chief executive officer, it must follow an established, proven recruiting process. Such a process increases the likelihood of selecting the right person for the job and lends credibility to the chosen candidate, providing an essential foundation for his or her tenure.
