Healthcare Practice

Since our inception, the Healthcare Practice has been a pillar of our firm, encompassing executive search throughout the different verticals in healthcare. Our team has conducted hundreds of executive search assignments at all levels for healthcare clients, including C-suite & Vice-President searches, physician/nursing executive searches, and board leadership searches.  Buffkin / Baker’s proven, tailored approach and ability to identify existing and emerging leaders for our clients, allows us to deliver outstanding, diverse slates of candidates for each executive search assignment we conduct.

Our specialized teams within the Healthcare Practice conduct executive searches in three different verticals: 

  • Healthcare Delivery: Academic MedicineNon-Profit & For-Profit Healthcare systems/hospitals, and Integrated Delivery Networks
  • Healthcare Services: Multi-State/Multi-Site Nonacute Care Services, Homecare/Hospice, and Senior Care
  • Healthcare Technology: SaaS, Tech-Enabled Services, AI, Revenue Cycle, and Digital Platforms

We are fortunate to have attracted dedicated, experienced teams serving each of these verticals based on their personal backgrounds/expertise. Our Healthcare Practice has a combined 150 years of healthcare search and operating experience, and many of our colleagues have served as healthcare leaders themselves prior to joining Buffkin / Baker.
