Thomas Benoit | President


Tom Benoit has a solid knowledge of hospitals gleaned from a graduate degree in Hospital Administration and 18 years of administrative experience including positions such as a COO and CEO of community hospitals.

For over two decades, he has assisted healthcare organizations to become more efficient by attracting leaders who drive improvements in quality, customer satisfaction, and financial performance.


"I feel that nursing is the backbone of a hospital and healthcare organization. At ATA, we try to find leaders who inspire the staff to be at the forefront of innovative ways to collaborate with physicians in bringing the highest quality and a satisfying experience to patients, while being cost effective."


"Moreover, in order to thrive, hospitals must first survive. Essentials are good financial executives who maximize reimbursement, negotiate favorable contracts, maintain internal controls, and ensure that the organization has timely financial/clinical information to make strategic decisions. In collaboration with finance, nursing and other clinicians, the information management staff, starting with the CIO, must ensure that the right information is captured for optimal patient care."


Hospitals/healthcare organizations who benefit from our services usually know they will have a vacancy, and they want to complete a successful recruitment strategy when time, cost, and retention are major considerations.

Specialty areas for Mr. Benoit include:

Financial healthcare executives
Nursing Leaders (CNO, Directors, Nurse Managers)
Information Management Leaders
Departmental Leaders (Directors LAB, Radiology, etc.)
Physicians and Medical Directors
Leaders in Home Care, Hospice, Long Term Care
