Healthcare Executive Search and Talent Solutions

Hospitals, health systems, and physician groups across the country face daunting challenges in a period of unprecedented change. When executive vacancies occur, Nagle & Associates can guide you through the process of leadership selection and development, and help to ensure long-term retention. The competition for outstanding leaders is fierce and growing more so. Healthcare organizations, including large physician groups, need the right leaders to integrate with their organization’s culture and to communicate effectively with the senior leadership team to move strategic and operational imperatives forward. We believe a laser focus on senior leadership culture via an evidence/data-based assessment is absolutely essential to the search process and paramount to ensuring cultural fit. Leaving culture definition to perception is a gamble that may negatively effect selection and clearly may stand in the way of longer-term retention which could well be a strategic differentiator in the marketplace of the future.

Nagle & Associates provides comprehensive search and talent solutions on a national basis. Our team is a veteran one with each of our professionals possessing 25 or more years of experience in the healthcare industry primarily focused on hospitals, health systems, and large independent physician groups. Our mission is to help outstanding professionals align their career goals with an organization’s culture and strategic imperatives creating very impactful, long-term matches. Nailing the culture and professionally coaching the new hire in the new role is foundational for long-term success. A commitment to enabled leadership at all key levels maximizes an organization’s potential for long-term success.

“We continue to explore new ideas pertinent to executive search and to focus on executive level talent acquisition but often as part of a larger talent solution. I believe that bringing talented professionals on board is a good start, but an unwavering focus on an evidence-based cultural fit and commitment to coaching the new hire for several months within the context of culture will most certainly be strategic differentiators for successful healthcare organizations particularly in this era of a completely changing, and increasingly complex, fluid delivery environment.”

Our Approach and Beliefs

Our focus is unrelenting, positioning our clients as our number one priority. Our process is robust from beginning to end, including an evidence-based definition of the senior leadership culture early in the process, and providing executive coaching for the chosen professional once the search process is complete. Philosophically, we believe this approach is the soundest way to ensure executives enjoy longer tenures at the organizations with which we work. Thus, our search fee includes the culture definition and coaching component at no additional charge and our fees remain very competitive and, for the most part, performance-based.

Our Practice Leads To Results

Our capabilities range from senior executive leadership to selected director level searches which many other retained firms avoid. Our company is the size it is by design. Our off-limits list allows us to cast our nets farther and wider than many firms practicing in our niche. Our commitment is finding the right candidate to best suit your specific needs which differs from assignment to assignment depending on the requirements and challenges that are unique to the position and culture that exists in your organization.
