Summit Talent Group Completes Executive Search for Senior Vice President Patient Care Services & Chief Nursing Officer

4/10/17: Summit Talent Group Completes Executive Search for Senior Vice President Patient Care Services & Chief Nursing Officer for the Wyoming Medical Center.

Wyoming Medical Center engaged the services of healthcare executive search firm Summit Talent Group to conduct the Senior Vice President Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer Executive Search

Wyoming Medical Center is Casper’s only non-profit, full-service acute care hospital, located both in the heart of the city and the heart of Wyoming.  As such, the position of Patient Care Services & Chief Nursing Officer was of particular importance.

Although Chief Nurses were not historically a part of the executive team, the role of the CNO has now grown to both develop and be responsible for budgets. The Chief Nursing Officer is now a vital part of the executive team at healthcare organizations.  Additionally, this combined role serves as the voice of patient care to the rest of the organization’s leadership team.

When conducting this executive search for Senior Vice President Patient Care Services & Chief Nursing Officer, the team of healthcare search consultants at Summit Talent Group looked to identify candidates that were more than good on paper. We worked to find someone who had more than just the right certifications. The candidate to finally be placed into the position would need to be the voice for the patient population while leading innovation to push the organization ahead both financially and clinically. This requires highly specialized communication, negotiation, organizational, management, and workflow skills.

In order to assess the effectiveness of the candidates to be presented, our team looked at their past work history but focused on case studies for programs that they had implemented to understand their methodology in setting, planning, measuring, and achieving goals.
