Visante launches interim pharmacy leadership and search services to consulting portfolio
One of the more challenging aspects of health system pharmacy leadership can be the recruitment and development of leadership team members. Whether this need arises from a newly approved position, a promotion, a resignation, retirement or other circumstance, the identification, recruitment and ongoing professional and personal growth of a pharmacy leader is critical to the success of any pharmacy program. In addition to our current leadership development and executive coaching services, Visante now offers interim pharmacy leadership support services as well as retained search services for permanent placement.
Visante is pleased to announce the offering of interim pharmacy leadership support services for our clients. Many healthcare systems have successfully utilized interim leaders in key operational, clinical and administrative positions to keep the organization running effectively and moving forward in this rapid paced healthcare environment while the permanent placement recruitment process, which can take several months or longer, gets underway. Visante works with a network of well-qualified interim pharmacy leaders in numerous specialties and high-impact change agents with extensive pharmacy backgrounds. Utilizing an interim leader is an alternative that fits many current situations.
In addition, Visante is also pleased to announce the addition of permanent placement pharmacy leadership retained search services for our clients. Debi Verrill, an experienced recruiter within healthcare and health system pharmacy, in particular, has joined Visante as our Coordinator for Professional Recruitment Services. Backed by the full support, expertise and professional networks of Visante’s leadership team members and our consultants, Debi works on an exclusive basis with client companies to fill operational, clinical and administrative pharmacy leadership roles.
Visante has built our collective success largely on the trusted relationships, accomplishments and resulting value that we bring to you, our clients. Our retained search services continue to build upon these foundational elements. We serve as a trusted advisor to our clients, which begins with truly understanding the culture of the client company, the details of the business, and the tailored template for the open position(s). From that point, we provide a nationwide pool of candidates, based on need, which has been vetted thoroughly against the position’s detailed profile, work with the client through the interview process and the ultimate negotiation and offer to the successful candidate.
Visante is pleased to provide interim and permanent healthcare leadership solutions focusing on the clinical and non-clinical executive. We are constantly researching to make sure we keep an up-to-date database of potential networked candidates, most of whom are not currently searching for a change. We use the connections we have within the industry to find these individuals, including networking with other recruiters and professionals, in order to help you find the best and right fit for your pharmacy leadership team members.
Visante also understands the importance of ongoing professional and personal development to achieve a high performing pharmacy program.

Questions You Should Ask to Determine If You Need Visante Interim Leadership Support Services and/or Executive Coaching
- Are there serious problems that may be better handled by a leader who will be exiting after the issues are fixed?
- Does the existing leadership staff need to develop their skills further?
- Do you need to produce a change in the unit’s organizational culture?
If the answer is yes to any of the above questions, then Visante could be a valuable resource for you.
In-house recruiting and leadership development are an option, of course. However, there are time and money benefits to utilizing Visante’s services as adding transformational leadership can be an arduous process. Leading pharmacy clinical programs and operational services in hospitals and health systems is an increasingly complex area of expertise. Interim Leadership during a systematic approach to a search for the best candidate may be beneficial to an organization. Leadership development may also be needed, and executive coaching may be necessary to further develop an area of expertise within the leadership team.
