Merritt Hawkins 25th AnniversaryMerritt Hawkins’ employees, AMN Healthcare executives, members of Irving City Council, and Irving mayor Beth Van Duyne gathered at the Frontiers of Flight Museum on February 17, 2012 to celebrate a quarter century of achievement and thought leadership in the healthcare industry. The Frontiers of Flight museum, where visitors can embark on a memorable and historic aviation experience, was the perfect location to celebrate Merritt Hawkins’ 25 year flight as the leader in physician search and consulting.
Established in 1987, Merritt Hawkins has grown from a small office in Newport Beach, California to a national leader in its field. In 1990, Merritt Hawkins moved its headquarters to a more central location, Irving, Texas.  By the early 1990s, Merritt Hawkins had built a national reputation and was identified by Inc. magazine as one of the 500 fastest growing privately held firms in the country.  In 2005, the company took the next logical step, merging with AMN Healthcare, the largest nurse staffing organization in the country.  Today, we are part of the most dynamic team in the staffing industry, capable of delivering diverse and innovative work force solutions for virtually any hospital, medical group or other healthcare facility in the country.

Over the last 25 years, Merritt Hawkins has placed thousands of physicians and other clinicians throughout all 50 states. These professionals have had a profound and lasting impact on their communities, contributing billions of dollars to local economies, significantly enhancing quality and access to care, and saving countless lives.
Merritt Hawkins is proud of the positive impact on health care, proud of the pioneering methods developed and proud to celebrate this 25 year legacy.  February’s event commenced a yearlong celebration where we will reflect on lifetime achievements, thought leadership, and renewed commitment to clients and healthcare professionals as we continue to promote trust, innovation and results.
