Recruiting Built for Healthcare

SMG Healthcare Recruiters is your ideal partner when it’s time to fill critical positions with talented staff. We fulfill your staffing needs so you can concentrate on the bottom line.

Experience Matters

We’ve been recruiting and meeting the staffing needs of healthcare enterprises for over 25 years. Partnering with SMG Healthcare Recruiters gives you the benefit of years of experience in both the healthcare industry and the recruiting industry.

The result is better hires and open positions being filled more rapidly. Your clients come to you for your experience in providing the type of care they need. When it comes to healthcare, experience counts. We think healthcare staffing is no different.

Why SMG Healthcare Recruiters?

The healthcare field, and SA/MH treatment in particular, are far too competitive to leave anything to chance. A niche recruitment organization that specializes in healthcare can improve the quality of your hires and shorten the length of time that positions stay unfilled. 

It also enables your HR department to focus on maintaining the high performance of your current workforce. Instead of sifting through numerous job candidates in a laborious search for the best new hire, your HR team can concentrate on staff training, certifications, and fostering moral and wellbeing.

Frank B. Severino, Sr.

CEO & Senior Managing Partner

Born in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park, Illinois, Frank moved to Orlando, Florida in 2017. A founding member of SMG & Associates, he has been with the company since its very first day in 2019. Frank brings extensive experience in the Mental Health, Eating Disorder and Substance Abuse treatment field to SMG’s long list of strengths, working as the Executive VP of Business Development for RiverMend Health and as Regional Director for Lakeview Health. 

The move into healthcare recruiting seemed like fate to Frank as he has spent the bulk of his career working in either recruiting and staffing or mental health treatment. The decision to merge the two into the venture that became SMG Healthcare Recruiters came naturally. It allowed him to leverage his greatest strengths and provide truly exceptional service to the healthcare industry. 

Frank understands just how important filling positions with the right people is in the healthcare area because he’s seen the process from every angle. He lives in Sarasota, Florida with Karen, his wife of 38 years and is blessed to work with his sons, Frank and Michael in building SMG Healthcare Recruiters. His son Joseph has recently joined the firm and is learning the recruiting field as a candidate screener. Additionally, Frank leads our staffing company, “Pinnacle Staffing Resources”. He serves as an Advisory Board Member for the N.O.W. Matters More Foundation. He divides his free time between various passions including boating, fishing and golf and work with his church.
