Hospital Human Resources Leader Hugo Aguas Named Director of Interim Services for Compass Clinical Consulting

CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwired - June 05, 2017) - Hugo Aguas, MPA, has been named Director of Interim Services for Compass Clinical Consulting. Mr. Aguas has more than 35 years of experience in human resources (HR) management in large health systems, teaching and research hospitals, and community hospitals.

Difficult Issues Facing Hospital HR Leaders

Cost pressures, reduced reimbursements, stiff competition for physicians and nurses, Baby Boomer healthcare professionals retiring at an accelerated rate are making recruiting and retaining skilled talent a critical challenge. Add in the loss of skills, experience, critical organizational and intellectual capital, and Hospital HR Leaders face a difficult dilemma.

Finding the Perfect Fit

Hospitals typically plan for a four- to six-month executive hiring process, but this often takes much longer. Why? Because it is crucial to find the right person: a leader with the perfect match of skills, capabilities, experience, cultural fit, and proven results. However, this intervening job vacancy timeframe can lead to serious adverse consequences for quality, patient safety, staff engagement and financial performance.

Skills, Experience, Critical Leadership Vacancies

"It is hard to deliver quality care, and financial results for your community and hospital when your organization is understaffed, has unfilled leadership jobs or doesn't have the skilled providers to accomplish your mission -- or even staff your operations," said Mr. Aguas.

"Healthcare is going through turbulent times. HR directors like to work with someone who has dealt with what they've dealt with and know how to fill leadership positions quickly, effectively, and efficiently. That's why I joined Compass Clinical Consulting, to help hospital and health system HR leaders have a go-to source for skilled, experienced interim executive healthcare professionals to keep their organizations performing at the highest level of safety and quality."

As the Director of Interim Services at Compass Clinical Consulting, Mr. Aguas develops partnerships with hospital and health system clients, identifying and placing skilled interim healthcare executives, clinical directors, and managers.


Compass Clinical Consulting has helped hospitals and health systems improve performance and overcome obstacles to providing safe, quality patient care since 1979. Compass is clinically focused, driving change toward a goal of creating better American health systems through three services lines: clinical operations performance improvement, accreditation and regulatory compliance, and interim healthcare leadership.
