Denver, CO – July 8, 2009 -- The Colorado Hospital Association's Shared Services Division selected Onyx M.D., headquartered in Denver, as their new exclusive physician staffing company. Not only does this decision keep more jobs in the Colorado economy, it helps provide staffing relief to the Colorado health care community during a nationwide acute physician shortage.
“We inspected close to a dozen national placement firms,” explains Michael Scott, V.P. of Shared Services for the Colorado Hospital Association, “but only one received CHA’s gold seal of approval, and that is Onyx M.D. We based our decision on who we feel best serves Colorado hospitals. Onyx M.D. is run by a physician for physicians, they staff nationally, and they are headquartered in Denver. We focused primarily on the service they provide, but we like that they are local. Our membership can rest assured that they look primarily to the best interests of the patients, their doctors, and the institutions where they practice.” Not only is this a strong strategic move, but it keeps more jobs in the local Colorado region.
“It’s a real honor to be chosen by such a fine advocacy group as the Colorado Hospital Association,” says Robert Moghim, CEO and founder of Onyx M.D. “Although we staff in all fifty states, being locally based gives us valuable face-to-face time with the CEOs of Colorado hospitals. This enables us to better understand and fulfill their staffing needs.”
Monty McKentry, VP of Client Services & Recruitment at Onyx M.D., adds, “Trust is very important in our industry, and the Colorado Hospital Association has placed their trust in us. We see this as an opportunity to strengthen our local market and to better assist local hospitals.”
