Our Story

How our healthcare and hospital staffing agency came to be.

We're Proud of Our History

In July 2011, Co-Founders Doug and Kara Carter established Ironside Human Resources in Dallas, TX. The company’s vision was to provide world-class talent acquisition and executive recruiting services based on a cost-effective model to healthcare and medical organizations around the country – and to connect talented healthcare professionals with the rewarding opportunities they deserve.

We strive to provide a personalized experience for our clients and candidates alike.
