Interim Leadership Placement Services
Leadership vacancies can be costly to a hospital. They can halt your progress on key initiatives such as Magnet® journey or Pathway to Excellence®. You need an interim leadership firm who understands how critical it is to fill those vacancies quickly with top-tier talent who can immediately execute your hospital’s strategic priorities. An interim management firm owned by a nurse with hospital operations experience understands this better than anyone else.
Novia utilizes a unique 4-step process that sets us apart from other interim leadership firms and ensures each Interim Leader is a perfect match for your requirements, achieves your goals for the engagement, and delivers the highest level of satisfaction.
Consult with you to:
- Understand goals of engagement
- Develop candidate criteria that will drive success
Translate engagement goals and candidate criteria to:
- Generate matching candidate profiles for consideration
- Select the perfect “fit” candidate
Utilize a consultative approach to:
- Develop an action plan to achieve engagement goals
- Monitor progress to maintain alignment toward results
Execute the action plan to:
- Achieve results in accordance with the engagement goals
- Ensure satisfaction with performance
Our consultative approach provides a comprehensive solution with unparalleled personalized service. It starts by Novia equipping the Interim Leader with tools and materials to develop a Project Plan to achieve your goals and objectives. The Leader will document key project phases such as:
- Observations and key findings while assessing the current state
- Recommended actions to achieve desired future state
- Estimated timeframe to complete each action item
Throughout the engagement, we utilize regular touchpoints to stay connected with you and the Interim Leader to ensure you are consistently satisfied with the outcomes achieved. In addition, the Interim Leader provides you with Progress Reports at routine intervals clearly documenting status of achieving your goals & objectives.
To provide a seamless Onboarding experience, Novia is flexible to work with your Vendor Management System (VMS) or your Managed Service Provider (MSP). In addition, Novia can provide a full-service approach to Onboarding the selected candidate. At no additional cost, Novia will provide:

Finding the right candidate to fill a permanent leadership role can be a lengthy, time consuming and expensive process. Ensuring the selected candidate is a great, long-term fit is essential to successfully filling the position. Novia can help you feel confident in your decision to make the full-time hiring commitment with our industry-leading Contract-to-Hire Service.
Whether the candidate has been identified to fill a permanent position through the hospital’s recruiting efforts or Novia’s recruiting efforts, Novia offers to hire the candidate on behalf of the hospital and deploy the candidate to the hospital as a Contract-to-Hire Leader. The candidate will have access to Novia’s standard employment benefits, and the hospital will have peace of mind knowing the placement is covered by Novia’s comprehensive corporate liability insurance. Novia will work with the hospital to determine the Contract-to-Hire trial time period and create clearly defined evaluation criteria to measure success or failure at the conclusion of the Contract-to-Hire trial period so you can make a fully informed hiring decision that gives you peace of mind.
Each Contract-to-Hire engagement is unique with specific goals and objectives regarding the outcomes to be achieved. Novia is flexible and nimble to work with your hospital in designing a pricing package that fits your budget, the Contract-to-Hire trial time period and your hiring needs.

To help you get optimal results with your interim or permanent leader, Novia offers Wrap-Around Services to extend the leader’s success in building teams, developing relationships and generating results related to cost reduction, process improvement, quality enhancement and increased operational efficiencies.

We work in a collaborative fashion to develop partnerships within your hospital to focus on achieving desired outcomes and build upon your culture to ensure sustainable success for the measurable outcomes we achieve.
