Johnson Search Group: We’re More Than Just Recruiters

When you choose to work with Johnson Search Group, you’re not just hiring a recruiter; you’re hiring someone who cares and lives with passion and purpose. I can promise you that our entire team genuinely cares about each other, life in general, our clients and candidates, and most importantly, we have fun!

Here at Johnson Search Group, I believe everyone in my office is doing something they truly enjoy doing, and isn’t that the key to life? When hiring any one of us, you are going to get the best. You are going to get that smile over the phone and someone that genuinely cares about our clients and candidates. Recruiting, of course, is not for the faint of heart as it is like riding a roller coaster every day; the ups and downs, the free fall, and the waiting are the hardest parts.

My passion is Kansas

I am passionate about the healthcare industry, so that is why I am here. It’s not just a job; it’s my career, my focus, and to love what you do is a pretty cool thing. I specialize in recruiting in rural health in Kansas and helping with the critical needs of my clients. A hospital cannot afford to sit on an open position for months, as it ends up costing them way more money in the long run than when they simply hire me to help.

When you partner with a recruiter from Johnson Search Group, you are not only going to get great candidates in a short period of time, but you are going to get resumes from people ready to make their next move, which will save you TIME! Time is the most important gift you have in this life, and we all believe in using it wisely. So please rest assured, we shall not waste any of your precious time nor ours or our candidates’. We are also fully skilled and trained in the industry we specialize in, which means we are great at wading knee-deep through an inbox full of 104 resumes to find the most qualified so that you don’t have to. That translates to you having more time to run your facility efficiently.

Back to the basics

For me, I honestly smile when I pull a candidate out of metro Kansas and talk to them about the joys of “slowing it down” and moving into more rural areas throughout Kansas. I seek out those who connect over simplicity, “zest for life,” and perhaps a little “all those who wander are not lost,” connectivity. These are the candidates I love to introduce the joys of rural health to. Whatever it is, there is joy in the rolling hills, open space, and the sound of the wind. Peace of mind is worth all the money in the world, and we help people find it. Some would say we are bringing back sanity to this world.

Please rest assured that when you call me, Stephanie Brown, I will fill your positions with the most qualified people in the industry and get them excited to join your team before their resume ever hits your desk! Wouldn’t you like to have some time to enjoy your work and keep your team happy? Just remember when hiring one of us over here at Johnson Search Group, you are getting more than just a recruiter with money symbols in their eyes. You’re getting a pretty neat person on the other end that cares about you and your organization, and perhaps, a new friend in the bargain!

Rural Health

Keeping Rural Heath Alive

Rural Health

When looking at rural health, there is no denying our rural hospitals are suffering. Every day, articles are being posted online on the effects of rural healthcare facilities closing and their communities. But what about all the medical needs of all the farmers, cattle ranchers, and other rural residents? Where are the people looking for peaceful quiet places and fresh air?

They’re leaving in herds

More and more people are moving out of rural areas. As a healthcare recruiter in Kansas, this is my number one selling point to my candidates: Living in a community where everybody knows your name. How nice is it to call Susie down the street to pick up your kids from school if your day has simply gotten away from you? I even know of communities that bus the kids around for free to activities and daycare while their parents work. Isn’t that what we are supposed to be doing as humans? Forming communities, being active within them, and lending a hand? 

I recently read an article where a wife lost her husband. He had fallen, and due to the recent closure of their nearest hospital in Kansas, air Ambulances couldn’t retrieve him. So, he was forced to be driven by an ambulance 90 miles to the nearest neurology center where he sadly succumbed to his fall. The medical and emotional consequences just don’t seem right.

However, living rural is glorious. I would say that over 80 percent of the candidates I talk to are thrilled to move to a place that makes them feel part of a community. It’s honestly the easiest selling point. Rural areas are where friends can meet for coffee before work, have neighborhood BBQs, watch your kids freely ride their bikes, and enjoy a fresh breath of air.

Combatting the decline of rural health

Some rural healthcare facilities do not even have obstetric units (family health doctors). This puts mothers and babies at a higher risk for complications. It is apparent over at Coffeyville Regional Medical Center by their Facebook page that they are proud of their doctor, mommies, babies, and their clinics. Kearny County Hospital recruits early career family physicians and flies in a maternal-fetal medicine specialist once a month to help with high-risk pregnancies. Everyone at Kearny takes such pride in their facility and their community. This is what will keep rural healthcare alive. 

Work with a recruiter who’s passionate about Rural Health

Here at Johnson Search Group, we get rural. In fact, our SVP Perry Paden grew up in Lenora, Kansas so there is a soft spot for Kansas right here in the office. So, we get the challenges rural health is facing and the effect it is having on communities everywhere.

Call me, Stephanie Brown. I will find healthcare professionals that want to contribute to your communities. It’s my passion and my job to support all rural healthcare facilities in Kansas. Reach out to my team and me at 205.588.8075, and we will get you the talent your community needs.
