OUR STRENGTHS


Performance


“Securing quality pediatric physician and administrative leaders requires far more than simply sourcing a known talent pool or database. MillicanSolutions’ approach has always included systematic organizational preparation and thoughtful consideraton of the hospital's culture. Their innate ability to find leaders whose management style fits well within an organization, immersing themselves in the daily life of an organization to understand the inner workings and personalities of the leadership team, and their commitment to designing well-constructed plans for recruitment assignments are what sets them apart from other physician recruitment firms.”

Effectiveness


“MillicanSolutions has played a critical role in Cook Children’s medical staff development initiatives for more than nine years. Their proven ability to facilitate often tenuous and politically sensitive assignments has enabled us to successfully recruit from among the Nation’s top pediatric talent. In the milieu of consulting and search firms, Millican stands out as one of the best.”

Effectiveness


“When Le Bonheur and St. Jude made the decision to jointly recruit a physician leader to oversee Critical Care at both institutions, we knew this assignment would require a firm with an intimate knowledge of the inner workings of our hospitals and the ability to recruit world renown talent to Memphis. We turned to MillicanSolutions, a firm that all involved were comfortable working with. The team at MillicanSolutions worked diligently to bring forward specialists with national and international reputations and more importantly, physicians who could work within the dynamics of a research focused institution such as St. Jude and a clinically focused institution such as Le Bonheur.”

Focus


“Wesley Millican and his Associates have done a remarkable job in finding highly talented Academic Pediatric Subspecialists. They work extremely hard for a client including search committee administration, extensive networking, meeting with prospective recruits, sharing the vision of our position and helping to recruit to our hospital and university. MillicanSolutions provides frequent follow up and has the ability for finding the correct individual for the job. They also find faculty members with strong and effective leadership skills. I strongly urge you to look to this proven team for your recruiting needs.”

Professionalism


“When working with MillicanSolutions, it is readily apparent you are working with professionals who take their search assignments very seriously. Because they have taken time to understand the unique needs and dynamics of our organization and our community, I consider them an extension of our team. Their relationships with the leaders in our organization has resulted in the successful recruitment of physicians from a variety of subspecialties who fit well into our culture and community, but also bring fresh ideas and enhanced skills to our organization.”

Integrity


“When I was approached by MillicanSolutions regarding the unqiue opportunity to serve both Le Bonheur Children's Medical Center and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, I knew it was a one-of-a-kind opportunity to maximize my research and clinical experience in a win/win partnership with these institutions. Throughout the recruitment process, the staff at MillicanSolutions provided detailed information about each organization and its leadership. They were actively involved in helping to define my administrative roles and fairly represented the interests of all parties involved.”

Persistence


“It was MillicanSolutions’ ability to be professionally persistent that brought me to my current role in Memphis. Today, thought leaders in all pediatric subspecialties are inundated with professional leadership opportunities. Without representation like that provided by Wesley Millican, most opportunities will fail to rise above the noise that is created by the current talent shortages in pediatrics.”
