To promote effective provider services in hospitals and practices within our catch-basin by networking with other professional provider recruiters to attract dedicated Physicians and Advanced Clinical Practitioners to practice throughout our region.
Our Objectives

The Carolinas Association of Provider Services held its first official meeting in April, 1994 in Lumberton, NC, with 23 hospital representatives present. From this meeting, CAPS was formed and objectives were established.

These include…

  • To serve as a resource organization in service to members and non-members alike in the provider services within our communities, to promote an awareness of the value of provider recruitment services within the management of hospitals
  • To promote and encourage the development of provider services’ department and programs within our communities
  • To recognize that effective provider service practices achieve broader understanding and support among various constituencies of our members.
