Case Study – Rockingham Memorial Hospital

When Rockingham Memorial Hospital needed a skilled IT professional, Capital TechSearch and VHHA delivered.

In this tight job market, employers receive many applicants and spend a significant amount of time and resources evaluating candidate qualifications. So, when executives at Rockingham Memorial Hospital needed to hire an experienced information technology professional for a critical position, they turned to Capital TechSearch, Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association’s (VHHA) exclusively endorsed IT Staffing and Placement Services company.

“Any time you put an ad out for help you get inundated with responses,” said Roger Dickson, director of technical services at RMH. “It’s pretty tough to go through and screen them all.”

Using our patent-pending 12-step methodology, we recruited and screened top-quality candidates that matched the hospital’s specific qualifications. “Capital TechSearch did an excellent job defining requirements and managing the pre-screening process,” Dickson said. “They lined up three strong candidates to review.”

Last February, after a rigorous selection process, Capital TechSearch was chosen as the preferred IT Staffing and Placement company by VHHA Services. Because of the confidence inspired by the partnership with VHHA, RMH also saved time by going straight to Capital TechSearch. “The need to quickly and easily recruit well-qualified IT professionals in today’s health care environment is critical for our members,” said David Jenkins, vice president of VHHAServices. “Capital TechSearch addresses these challenges by assisting VHHA members to deploy new systems and infrastructure upgrades that require technical expertise.”

In the end, the hospital was able to fill the position with only three candidate interviews. Dickson said he was pleased with VHHA’s preferred partner program and with Capital TechSearch’s thorough and professional approach. “It cut my work down by two-thirds.”
