Case Study: Diamond Healthcare Corporation


Diamond is a national leader in the provision of contractual management services to hospitals for inpatient and outpatient services. Managing specialized geriatric programs, adult, child and adolescent services, chemical dependency, residential treatment facilities, sleep disorder services, and outpatient pulmonary services, Diamond has both the resources and the experience to offer contractual relationships that are tailored to client needs and preferences. These capabilities include start-up of new services and expansion or improvements to existing programs.

Challenge: Diamond’s senior leadership recognizes the value of top-tier talent at the executive level. Business growth and expansion strategies demand proven leaders today. Long term planning demands a talent acquisition strategy that will provide succession and leadership tomorrow and beyond. Numerous and on-going national executive searches are needed.

Solution: Gateway and the HR leadership at Diamond worked together to craft a unique and mutually beneficial relationship directly aligned with the strategies and mission of both organizations. Gateway’s innovative spirit combined with Diamond’s deep experience and understanding of its own client base and business has forged a new center of expertise for recruitment. Gateway provides traditional executive search services and also works as a direct extension of Diamond’s HR department by providing retained consulting services to assist in any way required.

Results: Diamond is able to focus its leadership and HR resources on core business activities, while Gateway continuously works to attract and retain a new generation of executive talent. Gateway represents Diamond in markets across the country and ensures that a consistent, proven and professional approach is applied to each search. Gateway is helping to execute senior leadership’s vision for culture change not only in the area of recruitment but in other key departments as well.
