CRMC Aggressively Seeks Top Physicians
Cookeville Regional is actively involved in ongoing efforts to recruit the best physicians from across the nation. Because of this, the hospital's staff — and the specialties it is able to offer — are continuing to grow. The most recent additions to the CRMC staff include pediatric and adult hospitalists, an endocrinologist and a nephrologist. With these new additions, the hospital's active medical staff numbers more than 155, two-thirds of whom are specialists.
CRMC posts positions on its website and on a national job posting board and also occasionally enlists the services of recruiting firms. For physicians who express interest, the hospital conducts phone and in-person interviews and familiarizes the prospect with the community, which many doctors find appealing.
The hospital is now actively searching for a gastrointestinal physician, as well as a cardiologist and a neurologist, and will continue to expand as needed to offer state-of-the-art health care to Upper Cumberland residents.
