Interim Healthcare Management

Compass Clinical Consulting provides exceptional interim healthcare executives and clinical directors to hospitals and healthcare organizations throughout the country. Our experienced, senior leaders create an immediate impact while our clients take the time needed to find the best possible permanent candidate to join their team full-time.

Senior executives and clinical and departmental directors are a critical team at any hospital. They are the leaders who drive the organization to function and to become better. Unfortunately, there are times when one or more of these executives or directors gets promoted within the system, becomes suddenly ill, leaves to pursue different career options, or is terminated.

Interims from Compass Clinical can fill key leadership positions, allowing your hospital to begin the transition and make forward progress while you start the search for a permanent replacement.

Interim Executives, Clinical Directors, and Managers

We share in our clients’ goals for success, which is why recruit and place only top-tier, ready-to-go healthcare leaders who meet our rigorous standards in order to match the right people to each hospital’s unique situation.

Compass Clinical Consulting places only interim executives or clinical department directors with skills and experience specific to the task at hand. Such specialized knowledge usually allows hospitals to achieve their stated goals more quickly and with fewer complications than it would otherwise. Additionally, we bring in people who can “hit the ground” running, making their presence known, but also working to fit into the organization’s needs.

How it Works

First, we will have a brief discussion focused on identifying the specific needs of your hospital so that we can provide you with the most suitable candidates from our talent pool, according to your timeline. Our candidates are vetted by experienced clinicians and a thorough interview, reference, and background verification process.

Next, we will provide an overview of our pricing and our interim contracts, ensuring that you have all of the information you need to make the best decision for your organization.

Shortly afterward, we will deliver candidates tailored to your needs for your consideration and make arrangements for interviews. Once you choose the candidate that best fits your needs, we assist will all onboarding requirements to get your interim leader up and running in your organization as quickly as possible.
