About Us

JohnGSelf + Partners, Inc. provides executive-level and leadership acquisition solutions exclusively to the healthcare industry. In the medical industry, where change and innovation are part of the daily landscape, long-term, dependable partnerships have become an invaluable asset. At JohnGSelf, the enduring relationships we have earned with our clients and candidates have helped us attain a C-level retention rate twice the industry’s norm.

Why We’re Different

When seeking new leaders for your health system, hospital, clinic or other healthcare service business, there’s much more than money at stake. The right executive leadership can have a profound effect on both the quality of care and the bottom-line success of a healthcare organization.

  1. 3-Year Placement Guarantee
    We are one of a select number of executive search firms to offer a 36-month replacement guarantee. No other executive search firm assesses and screens potential candidates more thoroughly. 

    We guarantee the tenure and performance of the successful candidate for a period of thirty-six (36) months from the date he or she commences work. If the candidate leaves during the first, second or third year, the Firm will conduct a replacement search for the cost of expenses only – no professional fee.

  2. TopGrading© Interview System 
    No one in the search industry screens candidates more thoroughly. Building on a career as an award-winning crime writer and investigative reporter, John Self and his team ask tough questions of clients and candidates.

    TopGrading© is a detailed, highly-effective interviewing process that allows us to incorporate analysis of the candidate’s prior assignments, successes, failures, and personal/professional style with those of other members of the medical staff and support team. This includes:

    • Resume Review
    • Initial Personal Screening Interview
    • DISC Assessment
    • Background Investigations
    • Face-to-Face Interviews
    • Candidate References
  3. In-Depth Client Research 
    We base a percentage of our fees on your satisfaction. We will discount our fees if we miss deadlines, present candidates who do not meet your expectations, or otherwise fail to deliver a top-quality search.

    Interviews with medical staff leadership and other key stakeholders regarding the practice structure, the compensation plan, the clinical and professional culture of the practice as well as  important match characteristics. This leads to the creation of:

    • Selection Criteria
    • Ideal Characteristics
    • Performance Opportunities
  4. Video Dossiers
    We narrow the field to a handful of candidates and provide you with a dossier to help you gauge each individual’s skills and personal style.

    • Detailed background information
    • Essays
    • Behavior and values analyses
    • Videotaped interview summaries
