MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C (Oct. 2, 2018) - Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie and Mount Pleasant Council Members Gary Santos and Kathy Landing today met with LeaderStat owner Eleanor Alvarez for a ribbon cutting ceremony. LeaderStat, an interim management, executive recruiting, and consulting firm in the healthcare industry, has expanded their placement services to include locum tenens nurse practitioner placement to better serve healthcare industry clients. Effective immediately, the newly established division, LeaderStat Locums, will identify and place qualified and experienced nurse practitioner providers for clients’ interim needs.
"We congratulate LeaderStat on the expansion of their operations," said Mayor Haynie. "This industry leader could have located their business anywhere, but they chose Mount Pleasant. They are now contributing their talents to our vibrant economy."
Eleanor N. Alvarez, CEO of LeaderStat says she is “looking forward to working with advanced practice nurses as they seek new opportunities,” and that the LeaderStat Locums Division’s focus on nurse practitioners is a “direct result of LeaderStat recognizing that, due to changing healthcare demographics, nurse practitioners will play a vital role in the future of healthcare.” According to a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ National Center for Health Workforce Analysis report, a majority of states are projected to have a shortage of primary care physicians by 2025. However, no state is expected to have a shortage of nurse practitioners, making advanced practice nurse practitioners with full practice authority the future providers of healthcare in many settings throughout the U.S. for the foreseeable future.
With eighteen years of recruiting experience, and a proven track record, LeaderStat is the industry leader in interim management, executive recruiting and consulting in the healthcare industry. Thanks to established offices in Powell, OH, and Scottsdale, AZ, plus a newly established office in Mt. Pleasant, SC, LeaderStat offers placement in all fifty states. “The expansion into the southwest US seemed like a natural fit for us as we continue to serve healthcare organizations across the country” says Alvarez. LeaderStat’s longevity and focus on establishing and maintaining relationships provides them an extensive network of experienced professionals available for interim and permanent leadership positions nationwide. They also offer training and consulting to provide clients with resources and services they need to operate their organizations at optimal levels. For more information, visit leaderstat.com.
