In addition to Modern Healthcare’s top ranking, Wheless Partners is 1 of only 40 firms selected & sanctioned in ACHE’s National Executive Search Firm Exchange

BIRMINGHAM, AL, October 30, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Wheless Partners has been ranked among the nation’s top healthcare search firms for 2017 by Modern Healthcare, the industry’s leading publication for healthcare executives. Modern Healthcare’s annual search firm ranking is based on total number of U.S. placements made for senior-level health care executives – senior vice president level and above. The survey considered type of search firms, net revenue, number of recruiters and number of placements, among other factors in ranking the largest healthcare executive search firms in the nation.

“We are honored to be recognized as a top healthcare search firm,” said Wheless Partners CEO Richard Grehalva. “In addition to Modern Healthcare’s top ranking, our firm is 1 of only 40 firms selected & sanctioned in ACHE’s National Executive Search Firm Exchange. Our clients think it makes sense that our executive search consultants are former executives themselves, who have sat on their side of the desk, and who ask the kinds of questions they would ask.”

“We are former CEOs, COOs, CNOs, VP Strategy, VP Human Resources, Physician Practice Executives, and University Chancellors (overseeing major academic medical centers) who have held positions in organizations of varying sizes and cultures and understand the roles, requirements of success, and complexities of hospitals, health systems and academic medical centers. Members of our team have served on the National Advisory Committee of Women Business Leaders in Healthcare in America, have served as corporate executives in e-Health consultancies and leading providers of services to the healthcare industry, and have been leaders in the MGMA, AONE, and other organizations.”

“Our unique backgrounds allow us to better understand an organization’s culture and environment and to better assess candidates that best fit our clients’ needs. In fact, 75% of our healthcare revenue comes from existing, well-served clients who come back to us again and again. This is strong evidence our performance is sound and our business model works,” said Grehalva.
