About Us

Jackson Physician Search is the largest privately held permanent physician recruitment firm in the industry and specializes in the recruitment of physicians, physician executives, and advanced practice providers for healthcare organizations across the U.S.

Our Success Rates Continue to Drive Meteoric Growth

Driven to improve patient access to care, we made a deliberate decision more than a decade ago to change the face of the industry. We reimagined our candidate acquisition process, did away with costly, ineffective direct mail, and pioneered the first all-digital recruitment process.

Even though we’ve grown to become the largest privately held permanent physician recruitment firm, we’re relentless innovators. By investing in the latest technology and in our people, our success rates have earned us a 97% client satisfaction rate and 90% of our clients award us multiple search assignments.

Our Story

Our proven track record of delivering on some of the toughest searches goes all the way back to the 1970s when Jackson & Coker founded the physician recruitment industry that we know today. A lot has changed over the past four decades, but our commitment to placing physicians who fit, succeed, and stay remains the same.

In 2009, Tony Stajduhar, who worked for Jackson & Coker years earlier was invited back to serve as president. In just seven years, we grew to become an established leader in physician recruitment. Our success rates had climbed so dramatically that we rebranded as Jackson Physician Search.

With offices in Alpharetta, GA, Dallas, TX, Denver, CO, and St. Louis, MO, and as one of 15 highly specialized healthcare staffing, search, and technology companies, we are part of the Jackson Healthcare family of companies that helps thousands of healthcare organizations serve over 10 million patients every year.

Our Mission & Values

Our mission, rooted in over four decades of service in healthcare, is to always deliver what we promise to our clients, the providers we place, and the associates who choose to advance their careers with us.


As part of the Jackson Healthcare family of companies, we share in the corporate values of Others First, Wisdom, and Growth.

Others First: Others first means thinking about the needs of others before your own, recognizing the value of each individual and treating others as you would like to be treated.

Wisdom: Wisdom is the discernment to determine the best methods to achieve the best objectives — knowing which actions to take to achieve goals and determining which goals are worth achieving.

Growth: Growth is the journey of continuing to get better in all that you do and striving to be the best you can be at all times.
