Anne Yurkovich

Anne Yurkovich, Talent Acquisition Clinical Partner

I began my career with The University of Kansas Health System in June 2010 as a recruiter. I currently work with advanced practice providers and some of our ambulatory clinics to find top talent for the organization. I feel privileged to tell people that I work here, at a prestigious academic medical center and the best health system in the city. In December 2012, I became a patient for the first time, giving birth to my first child. As that day unfolded, I experienced a small complication during childbirth. The team discovered the complication and saved me from something that could have been much worse. They truly saved my life. I am passionate about hiring people who save lives and would love to tell you more about our health system and the amazing things happening here.

Tracy Dickens

Tracy Dickens, Talent Acquisition Clinical

I have been recruiting in healthcare for approximately six years, the last five dedicated to nursing. Recently, I was honored to join The University of Kansas Health System recruitment team as a nurse recruitment specialist. I take my responsibility for providing our patients with outstanding nursing staff very seriously. When my son made his debut into the world six weeks early, the nurses who I had helped recruit in the years before were suddenly the ones responsible for his care. That experience allowed me to see how much I can positively impact our patients through the careful selection of our nationally recognized nursing staff. Each of our nurses began his or her career because of a passion and a need to help others. They carry that same passion with them every day, as they care for our patients.
