Abby Walsh joined Grant Cooper (now a Diversified Search Group company) as a Research Strategist in 2016 after graduating from Saint Louis University’s College of Public Health and Social Justice. In 2018, after two years of focusing on developing targeted candidate databases, Abby began recruiting for physician leaders in large healthcare systems and continues to expand her scope of executive positions.

Before starting her career in executive search, Abby worked on the provider side of healthcare, facilitating patient care and research at major St. Louis area hospitals including Mercy Hospital, Missouri Baptist, and Saint Louis University Hospital. Abby brings this provider’s perspective to her searches as she works with clients and Grant Cooper’s internal teams to develop a focused candidate recruitment strategy for each engagement. Since joining the firm, Abby has participated in searches for nationally-recognized academic medical centers, freestanding hospitals, and managed care organizations.
