Thomas McKeever to Spearhead Jackson & Coker's National Accounts Division

Firm Responds to Market Demand for Single-focused Staffing Solutions

Alpharetta, GA (Vocus) June 14, 2009 -- "Thomas McKeever has been selected by Jackson & Coker ( to spearhead our expanded national marketing thrust--introducing a more streamlined approach to physician staffing at prominent hospitals and large health care organizations across the United States," mentions Sandra Garrett, company president. "We're finding that many longstanding clients are asking for a singe point of contact with whom to coordinate their projected temporary (locum tenens) and permanent staffing needs," she adds.

As a full-service vendor of physician staffing, Jackson & Coker concentrates on medical specialties that are in great demand. These include Anesthesiology, CRNA, Emergency Medicine, Primary Care (including Hospitalists), Psychiatry, Radiology and Radiation Oncology, and Surgical Services. Using a robust provider database developed over three decades, the firm's recruiters have access to an expansive pool of candidates who are open to discussing either locum tenens or permanent practice opportunities.

In addition, the firm has put in place a creative marketing plan--including linking with 15 leading physician job boards--to reach passive job seekers who might not otherwise make connection with Jackson & Coker's clients who seek to hire "the best and brightest" in every medical field.

"One of the chief challenges in handling National Accounts clients is to address all their staffing needs promptly and with 'kid glove' customer service treatment," Mr. McKeever commented. "Our experienced staff of locum tenens recruiters and retained search consultants knows what is involved in maintaining loyal clients in a highly competitive market strongly influenced by the current economic downturn."

Mr. McKeever's experience stems from years of industry knowledge in physician job [physician recruitment while specifically working within, and understanding, the unique needs of multi-facility national organizations.

Jackson & Coker's expansion of the National Accounts division is also in response to current economic conditions impacting the health care industry.

"Simply put, health care organizations are looking for the most for their money--both in terms of quality of providers, thoroughness of in-house credentialing, and any value adds that marketers can bring to the table," Ms. Garrett explains. "A principal point of contact can focus company-wide efforts on making sure that clients are constantly receiving 'best value' procurement of services sought that offers a sizeable return on investment--that's the key," she emphasizes.
