Industry Spotlight; Medical & Healthcare Meets M*A*S*H

28 February 2018

If you were a fan of M*A*S*H in the 70’s and 80’s you will know it’s not easy getting Doctors to unusual and challenging locations.

While Horner Medical & Healthcare does not need to recruit for the 4077th, we do often successfully recruit medical personal for some of Australia’s and the South Pacific’s more remote and exotic locations.

If you are a millennial and asking the question, what is M*A*S*H”? M*A*S*H is a 1972–1983 American television series based on the 1968 novel MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors following a team of doctors and support staff stationed at the 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital in Uijeongbu, South Korea during the Korean War.

The show was a mixture of comedy and serious themes.

By coincidence Horner Recruitment Medical & Healthcare’s man on the ground, Mark Griffiths also has a military background, having served years in the ADF. Since that time Mark has been preeminent in his field, working with and leading some of Australia’s biggest medical placement companies sourcing staff to work all over the world.

He may not be Captain Hawkeye Pierce, but we like to think of him as our own Colonel Sherman Potter, organised, cool in a crisis and keeping us all in line.

Everyone needs to rest sometimes and when Mark is sleeping in his hammock in the “Swamp” he is ably supported by his very own Radar O’Reilly or Corporal Klinger albeit without the Section 8, ensuring operations run smoothly 24/7, 365 days.

At HORNER, we know that Healthcare is a full-time commitment.

HORNER Medical & Healthcare places doctors and healthcare professionals at all levels of seniority in positions across the Australia Pacific region.
