Vice President

Tracie Klander

Address: WA

Tracie Klander currently serves as regional Provider Recruitment Manager of Eastern Washington and Montana for Provider Solutions & Development. She started recruiting physicians for Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland WA in 2005 where she recruited primary care, surgeons, and specialists and was soon promoted to manager (still always recruiting). When Kadlec joined Providence in 2014, she made the natural transition to PS&D. She has been a member of AAPPR since 2005, was one of the early members to earn her FASPR in 2011 and then served on the Fellowship Committee. She has a history of volunteering on AAPPR committees over the years, including the revitalization of NWSPR in 2015. This year Tracie plans to step down from her manager role to focus professionally on her passion for recruiting physicians to the community she calls home. In her free time, she plans to spend more weekends with her husband and adult children cheering on grands from the sidelines, cooking big Sunday dinners, and traveling to reconnect in person with friends and extended family post-pandemic.
