I have been working with Hospice Concepts, specifically, Dan McBrien for several years now.  In the past year and a half, I have had the opportunity to work with Dan regularly due to the growth and new positions open within my company.  My company opened 3 new offices in a state that we had never serviced before, in communities that weren’t necessarily warm and friendly to an “outsider”.  We had a variety of positions open and being a healthcare provider, out greatest need was for registered nurses.  What with the nursing shortage and specific requirements by the stat to fill out positions, this was a daunting task.  Dan worked hand in hand with me, learning the state requirements and understanding our unique needs being a “new start” office.  Dan has diligently worked to ensure that my office would have the appropriate staff.  We’ve had one extremely difficult position to fill, and when others would have thrown in the towel, Dan wouldn’t give up.  He was determined to fill my most difficult and desperately needed position.  Dan has left no rock unturned in recruiting for us. He has followed up with me daily if needed, and is just an all around great recruiter to have at your side.

Hospice Concepts did an excellent job in helping us to find a qualified Clinical Director.  Overall, they were very proactive, doing much more than just sending people our way.  Customer service was “the extra mile” with phone contact over the weekend when there was a sense of urgency on our end.  We especially appreciated the active role that Dan took in facilitating clear communication between all parties when we moved into negotiating the offer.  We really felt that he was partnered with us in achieving the best result for everyone involved.

I met Dan McBrien from HCI when he had been successfully recruiting away several of my sales people.  I was upset about it and decided to contact him to discuss it. While talking to Dan, I was impressed and decided to give HCI a chance to recruit for me.  Since then we have successfully placed candidates from HCI and in fact, I have recommended HCI to all of my counterparts nationally.  Currently there are several Directors of Sales, General Managers and Area Vice Presidents using HCI to recruit in their areas.

Dan and his staff are very easy to work with, provide me with quality candidates to interview and have excellent follow up skills.  I would recommend HCI to anyone looking for a reliable, effective recruiter.

A Personal Note

At a time in my life where I was seriously considering a career outside of healthcare, Dan found me.  He presented a hospice option to me and through his persistence and consistent follow up, I stayed in healthcare but in a different area. 
Today Dan recruits for my program.  (I am a General Manager for the Nation's largest hospice.)  The same Dan that found me continues to seek out (and find!) excellent candidates for my company.

Dan McBrien and the staff members at Hospice Concepts have been an exceptional recruiting agency for my business. They were aggressive and displayed true professionalism while searching for the exact individual who would be truly suited for the position I had an opening for. They went to great lengths to meet my needs and I was extremely impressed. Just when I exhausted the search for a quality candidate in a particular area, I met HCI and they closed the position within two weeks! I would highly recommend HCI to any professional healthcare organization!

The HCI team always goes that extra mile. They really go out of their way to understand our needs and the specific challenges we are facing with staffing a position, and to make sure that they find candidates that are a good fit before they come in for an interview. They have helped us save alot of time and money.
