Rebecca Gray of Fifth Third Bank Recognized by MD Preferred Services for Her Service to Doctors in the Columbus Market


In recognition of her work with area health care executives and physicians, MD Preferred, an online resource center for medical professionals, has recognized Rebecca Gray of Fifth Third Bank as an affiliated healthcare specialist for the second consecutive year.

Columbus, OH – US Medical Specialties, Inc., an international medical consulting firm, manages the MD Preferred online resource center for doctors.  Each year they help physicians and other healthcare professionals, find community based, “doctor friendly” business professionals from a broad range of disciplines including real estate, mortgage lending, insurance, accounting, banking, financial planning and legal services.  Rebecca Gray has been instrumental in bringing together a team of Columbus based business professionals committed to helping area health care facilities attract and retain talented physicians.

“We are proud of the recognition we have received and are particularly gratified that area professionals from other business disciplines have joined with us to participate in the MD Preferred program.  In an environment of critical physician shortage, we understand that doctors considering a career opportunity in our area will make their decision based not just on clinical issues but also on the quality of life offered by our community,” Ms. Gray observed.  “The last thing we want to have happen is for them to go elsewhere because the local support services he or she needed were not available or did not meet their expectations.”

Every MD Preferred affiliated business professional is recognized for their commitment to serving the healthcare industry.  They often work in close concert with other community based professionals, helping area medical providers attract and retain talented physicians and staff.   “MD Preferred community teams are uniquely qualified to act as recruiting partners to area practice managers and hospital administrators,” explained Ron Davis, VP of Member Services for US Medical Specialties.  “These knowledgeable professionals can tell the community story while the medical recruiter focuses on the clinical opportunity.  Their understanding of the special needs of physicians and their families saves everyone time and resources.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are approximately 700,000 physicians in the United States who work in excess of 60 hours per week.  While their earning potential is the highest among any profession in the US, a blizzard of government regulations and a host of clinical and economic issues leave little time for doctors to manage their professional and personal lives.
“Doctors are very busy professionals,” observed Michael O’Malley, Project Manager of MD Preferred Services.  “When it comes to finding a business professional that is committed to working with physicians, they appreciate an organization that has done the research for them and has pulled a team together to make their lives easier.  In addition to identifying, acknowledging and promoting professionals who offer service excellence to the medical community, MD Preferred is designed to save doctors time by providing detailed information about individual service providers allowing them to short cut the due diligence process.  The end result is a successful professional relationship.”
