Our Thanks and Support

We at Quick Leonard Kieffer (QLK) are continuing to monitor and adapt to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic.

Because of our work with you, the leaders of health systems, academic medical centers, hospitals, associations, professional societies, and life sciences and medical device companies, we are focused on keeping abreast of your challenges, ensuring that we understand how you are adapting and caring for your communities and patients. Indeed, we are extremely proud to see you, our clients and colleagues, demonstrate exceptional leadership and judgement during these trying times and thank you for all that you and your teams are doing in your communities to stem the tide of incidence, test and diagnose quickly, and care for those with the virus.

Like you, our first priority is the well-being of our team members, their families, and certainly our clients and their patients, as well as all those affected by our work. QLK is well prepared to function within public health guidelines, including social distancing, by leveraging communications and video technology in order to execute our executive search, consulting, coaching, and outplacement work. Our work has continued uninterrupted as we support our clients, whose needs for leadership and talent have only increased at this challenging time.

In addition, we are able to offer the informal and pro bono counsel of our experienced senior leaders, who have served as CEOs of hospitals, health systems, associations, non-profit organizations, and life sciences companies (see listing and bios below), and are of counsel partners to our talented search consultants and staff. We recognize that you are extraordinarily busy and have many resources; however, if you or your team would like to hear a different perspective or talk through particularly challenging questions you face during this time, we are available to you and want to help.

We thank you, our clients, who continue to rely on us to help navigate the healthcare talent landscape, and value your trust and business. We assure you that we remain vigilant as your partner. Most importantly, however, we applaud you and your teams for caring for our country and your communities at this very difficult time. We know that you will help lead us through this most difficult public health crisis and demonstrate the strength and effectiveness of America's healthcare community.

Finally, we encourage you to take care of yourself and your families. If there is anything that we can do to provide assistance during this time, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Highest regards,
The Quick Leonard Kieffer Team
