The mission of KSB Hospital is to restore, maintain and enhance health by providing superior care now and in the future. Nothing is more critical, or frankly more challenging, to realizing that vision than ensuring our community has access to the best physicians and advance practice providers (APPs) right here at home. Recruiting caregivers to a rural setting has always been a long and competitive process, and with recent studies projecting the current shortage of doctors to increase to more than 100,000 nationwide in the next decade, it’s likely to get even more challenging to attract the best talent.
Understanding that challenge and impact, KSB Hospital is incredibly excited to share with you that KSB Hospital Medical Group will be welcoming six new physicians over the next 90 days in a variety of specialties including Urology, General Surgery, Emergency Medicine, Hospital Medicine, and Podiatry. Also, we’ve continued to grow and expand our team of APPs with seven talented providers joining us in 2018. KSB looks forward to sharing more information about each of our recruits in the coming weeks as they begin to establish their practices here at KSB.
We would like to extend congratulations and gratitude for this success to the KSB Family and our entire community. Whether you serve as our recruiter who might spend months with a new physician, are a future colleague who offers a genuine smile in passing, or served a fantastic meal at one of our great local restaurants during a recruiting visit; each of us plays an essential role in this success by creating the kind of culture that attracts great people and helps make their decision to join us at KSB an easy one.
