Anamosa hospital recruits during RAGBRAI


RAGBRAI can be a great time for businesses to recruit, which is exactly what one hospital in Anamosa decided to do.

Due to large growth in the area, Jones Regional Medical Center is short physicians.

They posted signs throughout the RAGBRAI route to recruit new people.

To entice new docs they offered riders free pie if they stopped by for a tour.

"What we're really trying to do is connect with a physician that wants to work in a rural area, practice in a rural area, and what says rural Iowa and all the things that describe rural Iowa than apple pie and baseball," said Eric Briesemeister, CEO of Jones Regional Medical Center.

Officials at the medical center said they hadn't had any visitors yet but had received a few phone calls from doctors who are interested in the openings.
