About Healthcare Executive Search Firm Summit Talent Group


Summit Talent Group is one of the top boutique healthcare executive search firms in the United States. Because our leadership team comes from the healthcare field, we think like our customers. We understand the intricacies that healthcare organizations face on a daily basis, and this knowledge allows us to recognize the qualities that will make certain individuals an ideal fit for an organization and its mission to complete engagements quickly and effectively.

Because our team of healthcare search consultants has fully embraced white glove service and a six-step proven recruitment model, we take on a limited number of engagements at a time. This allows our leaders to head the searches, unlike other firms that delegate important search tasks to less experienced team members. Our team also takes the time to conduct a deep discovery with our clients so that we can have a full understanding of their mission, team, strengths, and opportunities. It is this in-depth discovery that allows us to create a leader persona with detailed competencies to identify the leaders who are not merely qualified on paper, but who will be a perfect cultural fit.

In cases where there is an urgent vacancy, Summit Talent Group offers interim leaders who are subject matter experts to fill in the void while the search for a permanent leader is conducted. These leaders do more than simply “fill in”. Interim leaders supplied by Summit Talent Group are problem solvers and will work with your department to prepare for the arrival of your new talent.
