In addition to the obvious loss of revenue and costs for recruiting a replacement, a vacant physician position affects additional elements along the healthcare continuum. Overall, this has a significantly negative impact on an organization’s annual operating budget.
In addition to costs associated with a physician vacancy is the cost of recruitment to fill the position. These costs include recruitment firm professional fees, site visits, competitive recruitment incentives, and HR staff and physician recruitment team time.

Implementing retention initiatives and seeking the assistance of an experienced physician recruitment firm that offers alternatives to traditional retained search, is key to avoiding excess costs involved with physician vacancies.
