In August 1995 Medi-Sota and Rural Health Alliance (RHA) received a grant to develop a joint physician recruitment program and in 2001 expanded the program to include a joint staff recruitment and retention program to address the workforce shortages in their service area. The program was designed to match healthcare professionals directly with a member employer through resources available to the program.

An advisory board with the executive directors of Medi-Sota and the Rural Health Alliance and one designated board member from each organization correspond and meet regularly with the recruiter to guide physician and allied staff recruitment activities. Current committee members include:

  • Mark Paulson, Medi-Sota Representative
  • Deb Ranallo, Medi-Sota Director
  • John Rau, RHA Representative
  • Erik Malchow, RHA Director

"It was so helpful working with a recruiter during my job search. I felt that my recruiter always understood what I was looking for in a job and always had my best interest in mind. The recruiter presented me with multiple possible opportunities, provided me with detailed information about each opportunity, assisted me in the decision making process, and followed up after I started working to ensure everything was going okay. Still today, my recruiter makes herself readily available if I need anything. Without the help of a recruiter, I wouldn’t have the job I do today."
Melissa, Occupational Therapist

"My experience with Medi-Sota was an absolute delight, every step of the way my recruiter had my best interest in mind as well as making sure that not only was I the right fit for the job but that the employer was the right fit for me. This made the stress and worry of the interview process much easier. Not only was she there throughout the hiring process but has still been there every step of the way throughout my relocation from Indiana. Working with Medi-Sota was a delight and their team helped me reach my dream job of becoming a lab manager, you can bet that I’ll be using Medi-Sota to recruit my staff in the future. If you want a personal touch and recruiters who care about whats best for you contact Medi-Sota!"
Lee, Lab Manager

"Working with recruiting was a great experience. My recruiter was always easy to reach for any questions that I had and was obviously very interested in finding what was best for me. The input was invaluable throughout the whole process from finding jobs that fit what I was looking for to helping me to prepare for interviews and ironing out my contract. I am very thankful for my recruiter’s time and support."
Shana, Physician Assistant

"My recruiter did an excellent job helping me with my job placement. The transition from student to professional easy and enjoyable. My recruiter found me placement that fit my personality and matched my ambitions. I love my job and enjoyed working with a recruiter!"
Kyle, Physical Therapist
