The Consultative Search Model

As System Chief Nursing Officer for the Trinity Mother Frances Hospital & Clinics in Tyler, TX, Rob Rose has hands-on experience in managing the complexity of an integrated healthcare delivery system. During his six years at TMFH&C and in prior roles, Rob has reached out to KBA multiple times because of their knowledge, expertise and consultative approach to retained search.

Rob states, “We have our successes at TMFH&C but in the current environment, everything is a work in progress and change is constant. Having partnerships with experts in the field is critical to success”. Rob states that KBA brings contemporary knowledge of how to redesign the organizational structure to meet emerging challenges. one case, Rob explains the leadership team was focused on filling a vacant Director of Case Management position. Discussions with KBA about our longer range objectives led to a major restructuring and creation of a Director of Patient Progression. Partnering with KBA helped us to leverage the vacant position to meet our current and longer-term needs. In addition, our long-term work with Rob has led us to partner together to restructure and create forward-thinking roles for nursing.

In a recent situation, we recognized our need for stronger Nursing leadership and infrastructure within Trinity Clinic, the 350 physician subspecialty practice. KBA team’s knowledge of emerging nursing leadership roles in ambulatory settings helped the team; nurse leaders, physicians, and administrators, establish clarity and consensus about our needs. Shortly, another great leader identified by KBA will be joining our team.
