Services for Health Care Employers

The Kansas Recruitment and Retention Center (KRRC) services are designed to assist Kansas health care organizations in recruiting and retaining health care providers. The KRRC partners with hospitals, private physician practices, community and behavioral health centers, and other organizations to help strengthen the health care workforce in communities across the State of Kansas. 


Recruitment specialists work one-on-one with health care employers to develop an opportunity description, identify key characteristics of an ideal candidate, create a marketing plan to recruit candidates, and offer guidance throughout the interview and hiring process. The KRRC specializes in the recruitment of physicians, dentists, PAs, APRNs, nurses, dental hygienists, allied health, and behavioral health professionals.

The KRRC only recruits for Kansas! Health care organizations in rural, urban underserved, and metro areas can sign up to experience the benefits of partnering with the KRRC (PDF) to find health care providers.
