Experts in Laboratorian and Pathologist Recruitment and Placement Nationwide





A Message From Rich Cornell- President

to some these are simply words, tossed around far too often with little to back them up.
To us, they are the foundation for the way we do business, the way we conduct ourselves, and the standards to which we hold ourselves every day.

Welcome to Sante. For over 27 years I have used these guiding principles, based upon the belief that each client deserves their own uniquely designed approach to meet their needs and ensure the right candidate is identified for the right opportunity.

That is why we are widely recognized as an industry leader specializing in high-level healthcare consulting and recruitment focused on pathologists and laboratorians. And that’s why we enjoy long successful relationships with clients such as Weill Cornell Medical College, The University of Minnesota and Aurora Diagnostics, just to name a few.

We also recognize that there are much more important stakes involved than simply filling a position. Our clients are trying to fulfill a vision, a mission to provide the highest level of professional healthcare possible for every patient. Our candidates are trying to grow a career where they can have a positive, long-term impact while providing a welcoming and successful home for their families. When these come together everyone wins.

This is Sante. The successful matching of our clients individual needs and vision with the right person, at the right place at the right time to bring that vision to its highest level. Anything less is something that we as a company refuse to do.

Excellence. Innovation. Cooperation. Ethics. Very powerful words, but even stronger principle to lead by.



Rich Cornell – President

Rich brings over a quarter of a century of experience to the healthcare recruitment industry. As founder, Rich has led Sante to be a recognized industry leader and trusted resource for numerous healthcare organizations and academic institutions nationally.

He has served on the board of directors of the National Association of Physician Recruiters (NAPR) from 1999-2003, serving as Association President in 2002-2003 and founding the Associations ‘School of Health Care Recruiting” in 2005.

Who We Help



First and foremost believe this: our role is not to “sell you” on someone, or convince a candidate to make a rash decision.

Our job is to listen, learn and make sure we understand the immediate and long- term goals of your organization or institution. Then, ensure we are meeting those goals. We will represent your needs in the most real, authentic and ethical manner possible to make sure we attract the best possible candidate to meet those needs.



It’s not a job, it is a future. We work with clients that seek candidates wishing to perform at their highest level. Professionals that want to generate impact, grow their expertise, and make a difference.

At Sante we know our job is to pair the right candidate with the right opportunity to make a difference, personally and professionally. That’s why our clients include some of the more respected health care and academic institutions in the world, which we recruit director level and above talent.

“I’d like to express my appreciation to your company and in particular to Rich Cornell. We have spoken countless times over the course of the past year. He was always available, highly professional, friendly and supportive. I always felt he was working on my behalf. Rich is an excellent recruiter and a great guy.”

Dr. O'Neill

In the past several years, our pathology group (Eastern Connecticut Pathology Consultants) has hired multiple pathologists with the assistance of Sante Consulting.

They not only reduced the time we spent on recruitment through their screening and vetting processes, but they also consistently sent us excellent candidates tailored specifically to our practice circumstances. Whether it's succession planning, market expansion or just routine pathologist replacement, Rich Cornell and his team are the national experts in pathologist recruitment.

Every dollar you spend will be well worth it in the time you save and in the final results of your search efforts.”

Renee C, M.D.
