Oconee Medical Center has a long history of making a difference in the lives of families living in the foothills of Seneca, South Carolina. So when Director of Physician Services Susan Hilscher required a new gastroenterologist to round out her facility’s medical staff, she trusted to proven success of The Carlisle Group to fulfill her opportunity. With the help of TCG’s optimized procurement strategy, Oconee Medical Center will soon become the home of an experienced gastroenterologist from California.
“When I took over this position we were working with a different recruiting firm that really wasn’t giving us what we needed,” Says Susan Hilscher, who explained that she searched for a gastroenterologist to her facility for nearly three years without much to show for it. When contacted by The Carlisle Group, Hilscher was at first hesitant to trust another physician recruiting firm. However, that soon changed.
“The referrals I got from other folks about The Carlisle Group said they were very successful and very professional,” she explained. TCG at once got to work on Hilscher’s opportunity, with Search Manager John Collmer immediately conducting a site visit for the facility and community.
He found that Oconee Medical Center uses the latest technology and treatment protocols combined with a commitment to quality and compassion to provide health care for the residents of Seneca, a town with a long history and beautiful lakes. “John was very professional, meeting with all of the critical people he needed to meet with,” Hilscher described. “They were all very impressed.”
Soon, The Carlisle Group procured a physician who was in search of a new opportunity and had immediately fallen in love with Seneca, South Carolina. TCG was able to locate the gastroenterologist for Oconee Medical Center in less than five months. Hilscher credits The Carlisle Group’s optimized procurement strategy for successfully fulfilling her facility’s physician placement needs. “It really does work for us,” she explains. ”TCG’s Procurement has been surprisingly effective for what we need. We look forward to a continued relationship with them.”
