Laura Hays, Founder, and CEO

Laura founded Trek Physician Solutions, Inc in 2004 after fifteen years with large national search firms as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing. In 2005, Laura was engaged by John C. Lincoln Health Network to help build the physician network. In 2006, Scottsdale Healthcare engaged Laura to be the exclusive outsourced physician recruitment partner. Since that time, the two organizations have merged, forming HonorHealth. Through this partnership, Laura and her Team continue to bring the best talent to HonorHealth and its affiliated practices.

Laura brings proven strategies for success in today's highly regulated, increasingly complex, and competitive environment.
