Premium Screening Process

With our MedBest Premium screening process, we determine what motivates executive level candidates, how they behave, what skills they can bring to your company and if there’s a cultural fit.

This yields more precise results, ensures the best possible match, and safeguards your investment for the long-term. In addition, since our recruiters exclusively place mid-level management to executive and C-Suite within the senior healthcare industry, we will only present qualified top-tier candidates.

At the MedBest Executive Search Firm, we typically fill a position within 40 days when most competitors average 52.

However, it takes time to match the right candidate with our company’s culture. We don’t have the time to properly perform this daunting task, yet we can’t afford to take shortcuts or make mistakes. The MedBest recruiters and their CEO, Julie Rupinski, are proving relentless in their quest to find our perfect candidate. They dig deep into a candidate’s background and ask tough questions many recruiters might skirt over or avoid. MedBest is candid with me and has gained my trust. I’ve also found the communication to be excellent and enjoyable. MedBest is saving us a significant amount of time, hassle and money; they are definitely worth the investment and we will continue to use them for future staffing needs.” – Charles Turner, CEO of Pinpoint Commercial Real Estate
