Hospitalist Engagement and Retention Survey
Gain insights into your hospitalists’ on-the-job satisfaction and the likelihood of retention.
DR. ERIC HOWELL INTRODUCES
The Hospitalist Engagement and Retention Survey
The cost of recruiting new hospitalists can easily exceed $10,000 per individual, and with the average turnover rate of 12.5% to 18%, recruitment can add significant costs financially. Conversely, retaining hospitalists can reduce costs. Research shows that an experienced hospitalist (2+ years) can reduce healthcare costs by $800 per case and decrease length of stay by a half-a-day.
The Hospitalist Engagement and Retention Survey is a report that rates hospitalists’ morale (in the full range of hospital settings) based upon a survey of hospitalists, implemented by Johns Hopkins. The results include a score that can be compared to other hospitals to help you gauge your staff against the national average so that steps can be taken to improve morale and retention.

Most hospitals do not currently measure morale, at least not through a standardized measurement tool. They rely on luck or leadership to help navigate these issues with varying success. Standard staff surveys do not often adequately address issues crucial to hospitalists. The Hospitalist Engagement and Retention Survey is being used throughout the Johns Hopkins-affiliated hospitals so that hospital and department leaders/managers can adequately measure hospitalist morale and help identify areas for programmatic improvement, with the aim to increase overall hospitalist satisfaction and retention rates.
