Physician Recruitment and Contracting

Our detail-oriented attorneys work with hospitals and other health care providers

Finding and hiring a physician that fits your company's needs can be much harder than many health care providers might realize. And to make matters more complicated, more hospitals, medical practices and other health care companies are often competing for the same skilled doctors. Our law firm can help your company recruit and hire the right physician in Hawaii. At Torkildson, Katz, Moore, Hetherington & Harris, Attorneys at Law, we have extensive experience representing hospitals, medical practices and other health care providers seeking to hire physicians.

When recruiting a physician, health care providers need to do more than just comply with all the applicable state and federal employment laws. They need to make sure they clearly articulate exactly who they want to hire and how that person will fit in with the hospital or medical practice's existing surgeons, general practitioners or other medical specialists.

The same applies to the contract offered to a successful candidate. A physician's contract should clearly spell out your expectations, including the physician's duties, work schedule, licensing requirements, incentive pay and grounds for termination, among other issues. That is why it is critical to consult with an experienced attorney. We can negotiate on your behalf and help create a detailed, legally-binding contract that addresses all of your concerns. We also have extensive experience dealing with the medical credentialing process mandatory for licensed physicians and other medical staff in Hawaii. We are here to help you.
