“Kara Carter has been amazing to work with! She reached out to me with a job opportunity that would include relocation from Arizona to Oregon. From my first phone interview through a site visit and my move to Oregon Kara kept me up to date on what to expect and kept me informed as things progressed. What impressed me most about Kara was her responsiveness and support. She answered calls and emails quickly and reassured me at each step along the way. Her familiarity with the position I was applying for as well as her ability to understand my personality and needs through just a few conversations made all the difference. I am grateful that Kara was able to help me find and get the job I wanted. Thank you, Kara, for making a stressful process successful!”

“I am writing this letter in reference to Ironside Human Resources. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ironside since December 2018, specifically with Stacy Winters. Stacy has been working with us to fill positions in our Imaging Department as well as in Laboratory. Stacy has taken the time to get to know us in order to source candidates that she feels would be best suited to our team. I appreciate the fact that she does not simply try to fill the position with anyone but screens them to determine whether they’ll fit into our culture.
I would recommend Ironside Human Resources to those organizations that are looking for a recruiter that will get to know you and find the right person for your team!”
Kim Barwick , Human Resources Director, Patterson Health Center, KS
“I have had the pleasure of working with Stacy Winters at Ironside Human Resources for the past three years. During that time Stacy has successfully placed several nurses (LPN/RN) in our Acute Care and Long- Term Care settings. Glendive Medical Center has also had great results with a Nurse Practitioner and LCSW that she placed in our Behavioral Health department.
Stacy is a great communicator, detail oriented and timely. Having worked with her over the years, I can say that her work ethic and loyalty are beyond compare than any other recruiter I have ever worked with. Simply put, Stacy is a delight to work with and a professional in every sense of the word. Not only does Stacy and Ironside Human Resources bring years of healthcare placement experience, but they are always professional and courteous. I can say with absolute confidence that Stacy and Ironside Human Resources would be a great asset to any company, and they will quickly become your go-to recruitment firm for your healthcare needs.”
Amber M. Egan, H.R. Specialist, Glendive Medical Center, Glendive, MT
I have been working with several recruiters from Ironside over the course of the last 5 months, on two difficult roles to fill. While the candidate pool has been a limiting factor for us, Kimberly Marshall, who recently took our account over in the last 40 days has made huge strides in finding us an appropriate candidate who we hired in approximately 30 days, for a coveted Technician position we needed quickly.
I have found Kimberly to be engaged, responsive and easy to work with as we continue to look for the ever-elusive Registered Nurse positions for a small, rural hospital. She has been very resourceful in her search and follow-up with the candidates she locates and shares on our behalf, so we always know what their status is – almost on a daily basis.
In addition, Kimberly has also worked with me on the entire hiring process so that the candidate is also given her full support and attention. As a hospital, we must perform several tests/exams for all prospective employees, which can slow our on-boarding process down by several days. While we do let the candidates know this, it is often a very anxious period of time for them to wait for these results to come back to us so we can clear them to start. Kim stayed in contact with both myself and the pending candidate so everything was communicated to her to allay any concerns. She really cares about her clients and also the prospective candidates she is working with to insure a good fit with the organization.
I would highly recommend Kimberly to other organizations to work with on their recruiting needs. We are sincerely hoping she will be the pivot point to help us find more healthcare positions in the near future.

“Doug Carter and the staff at Ironside have been great to work with—informative, friendly, easyto get a hold of–they get the nuts and bolts and get right to work. We had a very difficult behavioral health search, and I honestly thought it would take much longer than it did, especially since we are a very small, rural hospital and clinics. They gave us several candidates to choose from, and we filled the position quickly. I’ve worked with numerous recruiters, and Ironside Human Resources stands out as the best. And, they’re very reasonable financially, as well. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to get tough positions filled with quality candidates in a timely manner.”
Linda Satchwel, Recruitment Coordinator, Eastern Plumas Health Care, Portola, CA
“I am pleased to recommend Doug Carter and Ironside Human Resources. They have continually provided us with the highest level of professional customer service. They take a very personalized approach and truly reached out to us to understand our needs and how to best meet those needs. I have very much appreciated their willingness to match our needs and not merely market a candidate.”
Craig Loveless, CEO Prowers MedicalCenter, Lamar, CO

He is one of the strongest recruiters I work with. Through the years he has proven himself to be a wonderful recruiter, strong coach, and a top notch person who knows the industry. I would definitely recommend Doug for any company.”
Charles Frye, Chief Human Resources Officer, Estes Park Medical Center, CO
“It is difficult to differentiate a company and a recruiter in healthcare recruiting space today but Ironside Human Resources and Hannah Swei have done so in a hugely satisfactorily way. We could not be any more pleased with both the service and the results as a result of our decision to partner with Ironside Human Resources. It is obvious the relationships that Ironside Human Resources develops with its clients goes well beyond the usual recruitment company and its clients. We have used other recruitment companies and quite simply, Ironside Human Resources has done everything better and in most cases much better. Hannah Swei is truly an exceptional recruiter and perhaps an even better person. She is high energy, always working, communicates extremely well, does her homework on each and every candidate and most importantly, she truly cares and is passionate about delivering quality candidates suited for our small, rural hospital. On the other side of the recruiting process, the candidates that have been recruited for our organization could speak more highly about Ironside Human Resources and about Hannah as a recruiter. In this day and age, it is difficult to be wowed but both Ironside Human Resources and Hannah Swei have done so for our healthcare organization.”
Jessica Stewart, Executive Assistant, Phillips County Health System, Phillipsburg, KS
I have worked in the medical field a very long time and in various positions in leadership. Saying that , I have become very familiar with using agency staff whenever we had a need for it. Though, I must say that working with Ironside for our needs here at our hospital has been a great experience. They have gone above and beyond to help our staffing needs both in nursing and respiratory.
I especially like our point of contact in their human resources department Kris Moore, he is always diligent in communicating with both myself, and the rest of the team to find out if our needs were met. We have tried other agencies but Ironside, really fits well with what we require of our staff in order to give great patient care. We will continue to use Ironside as long as the need for agency is required with our fluctuating census.
They have been there for us at the drop of a dime, and that is very important to us when crisis arises. This relationship will continue and I highly recommend them. Thank you!
