Global Healthcare Services

Unprecedented change calls for unprecedented leaders.

Korn Ferry’s Healthcare Services Sector focuses on helping healthcare companies attract, develop, and retain best-in-class leaders and healthcare professionals. Healthcare reform and its ensuing uncertainty call for forging new ways of designing and delivering healthcare. The demands on leaders are at an all-time high. We offer a full range of talent solutions designed specifically to address healthcare leadership — from strategic search, executive succession planning, diversity, inclusion, and cultural competency training programs to competency-based assessments and interactive high-potential leadership development programs that impact employee engagement as well as patient experience.

Designing the future of healthcare.

As healthcare moves to an outcomes-based system, healthcare organizations are faced with new parameters in how they deliver care, changing demographics, new payment methods, and entire new populations accessing mainstream health care for the first time. This affects healthcare leaders with new and expanding requirements that include cultural competence, diversity and inclusion, clinical (physician and nursing) leadership development, and navigating a competitive and shrinking talent market. Additionally, acquisitions and a move toward multi-hospital systems, as well as CEO succession needs, all affect leadership. To pioneer the future, today’s leaders must be agile, high performing, possess enterprise-wide leadership capacity, manage change and navigate added complexity.

Today is where change begins.

Korn Ferry is strategically positioned to meet the talent needs of healthcare organizations. Our experienced consultants work with the nation’s leading health systems, health insurance plans, societies, and trade organizations to help them identify their leaders’ potential, drive development, accelerate readiness, and energize transitions. We are the only firm that can help you identify internal and external talent while simultaneously developing these leaders through engaging, proven solutions that meet and exceed expectations. Our team has deep and broad healthcare experience to help you address your talent needs today and equip your people for a strong future.
