I am the Chief Operating Officer of a privately owned surgical practice. Prior to my current position, Fred Newmark and I worked together for 10 years for a national healthcare organization.
Fred was responsible for physician recruitment in 22 of our markets. We had great success working collaboratively hiring providers for the rural communities we served. Fred was among the best recruiters in the organization based upon actual recruiting placements and retention of the signed physicians. He works with a high sense of urgency, develops very strong relationships with the physician candidates, is very detailed oriented and knows how to get deals done. His acumen works well at all levels from the local market recruiter to hospital CEO’s to corporate executives.
Fred has recently served as our lead recruiter for our group. With his help, we have signed an Anesthesia Pain physician and Sports Orthopedic Surgeon.
On a more personal note, Fred is a person of high character and integrity who earned my trust years ago. If your organization needs additional recruiting resources, I highly recommend utilizing his services.
Chief Operating Officer
I had the opportunity to work with Fred Newmark for 10 of my 13 years at LifePoint Health (a national for-profit healthcare system). While serving as Group President Fred had oversight of physician recruitment for the multiple non-urban markets we supported. He was one of our top recruiting leaders in the organization and we enjoyed great success during our years working together.
Among Fred’s strengths are his work ethic, intrapersonal/critical thinking skills, and situational awareness. He displayed a strong ability to work at the corporate level while supporting local market leaders and recruiters. He had oversight of 22 hospitals and assisted with strategy, medical staff planning, and implementation of best practices. Fred frequently interacted with our group leadership team while working closely with physician services, general council, and risk department.
I believe Fred is a great asset for any recruiting endeavor. Healthcare organizations, hospitals, and physician practices will benefit from his years of recruiting experience and overall institutional knowledge.
