The Value of Critical Access Hospital Experience

Being a recruiter in the critical access hospital space is quite the niche. Professionals in this healthcare segment require qualified candidates that have a background working within a critical access hospital. These candidates must genuinely have a passion for these facilities and the smaller communities that come with it.  

I would advise you that if you like rural health and like working for critical access hospitals, stay in the game. Your resumes are like pure gold to me when recruiting for my clients. It takes a specific person to enjoy the lifestyle and develop an understanding of how critical access hospitals run and what sets them apart from larger facilities.

What is a critical access hospital?

If you have worked within a critical access hospital and you enjoyed it, then you are very valuable to my clients. I can’t tell you how many times as a recruiter, I hear, “What is a critical access hospital?” A critical access hospital is a 25 bed or less hospital, and probably, it’s in one of the coolest communities you have never heard of. If you are interested in pursuing a new job opportunity and have experience with one of these smaller hospitals under your belt, please get me your resume asap. What do you have to lose besides your dream job? I can’t tell you enough how valuable your resume is.

I have had candidates basically fighting for the positions that I recruit on within the critical access space; however, in the rural health world, the truth is, most of my clients are looking for a minimum of 3 years of critical access experience. Things run differently within this niche, and my clients simply like candidates that enjoy rural areas and being part of the local community. These smaller hospitals just flow differently, and you may not get it if you haven’t worked in a critical access hospital before.
