Parkland launches massive recruitment effort

Organization looks to accelerate hiring process
DALLAS – In an effort to recruit the best and brightest people the healthcare industry has to offer, Parkland Health & Hospital System officials today announced plans to accelerate the hiring process and put more people to work.

The recruitment effort comes at a time when Parkland and other healthcare organizations across the country are challenged to find professionals in key areas such as nursing, pharmacy and physical therapy.

“Health care is a dynamic field and Parkland has been fortunate to have some very talented and skilled individuals working with us,” said Debbie Branson, Chair, Parkland’s Board of Managers. “The Board has pledged the resources necessary to continue that tradition to ensure that the patients whom Parkland serves receive safe and high quality care.”

To that end, Parkland is enhancing its referral and sign-on incentive programs for the majority of its vacant positions. Many of the open positions were created as a result of Parkland’s commitment to improving patient safety and the quality of care. In addition, Parkland’s Board and senior leadership have placed a renewed emphasis on the total patient and employee experience.

“Parkland employees have always been highly recruited by other institutions,” Mrs. Branson noted. “Our staff is comprised of dedicated individuals who truly care about our patients. The Board believes in Parkland’s mission and the employees who strive each day to carry out that mission.”

Those who apply for positions at Parkland will notice a streamlined hiring process, which includes an enhanced feedback loop with applicants. Once interviewed, candidates will be kept regularly apprised of their recruitment status and those selected will begin working within weeks of completing an application.
