COVID-19 has changed our world. For many, the days are more stressful as everyone is facing unprecedented challenges – sheltering in place is a challenge in itself. Long days also offer more time for self-examination and worry about what the future holds.
Speaking for myself, as President of Jackson Physician Search, I’ve spent much of the time listening. Over the past few weeks, I’ve spoken with physicians and other healthcare leaders who are tirelessly working during the pandemic. Their stories are amazing—heartbreaking, stressful, yet encouraging in the emotion, commitment and collaboration all these individuals share.
While our recruiting work goes on at Jackson Physician Search, we’re sharing these stories in a series of online interviews to show how COVID-19 is impacting the physicians and healthcare leaders we work with. We invite you to watch. Our conversations are frank, honest and really get to the heart of their sacrifice and the anxiety they feel simply walking into their hospitals. I am humbled to hear them speak and to be able to help them tell their stories of resilience, friendship, and hope.
— Tony Stajduhar, president, Jackson Physician Search
