Recruiting exceptional leaders for mission-driven organizations.



Patricia Hastie


With more than 14 years of executive search experience and a prior career as a psychotherapist, Pat focuses on the three-pronged mission of academic medicine: research, education, and clinical care. She joined Isaacson, Miller in early 2016 to help open the firm’s Philadelphia office and expand our work within healthcare. During her career, Pat has completed a wide variety of searches within healthcare and higher education, from C-suite to director-level roles in hospitals and health systems and their affiliated research institutes, centers, and professional schools. In addition to her work in adult medicine, Pat has a particular passion for work in the fields of pediatrics and oncology, having conducted multiple searches for industry-leading and top-ranked pediatric hospitals and cancer centers. These mission-driven organizations resonate with her social work background and training as a psychotherapist. She credits that training for honing her relationship skills and her ability to assess the cultural dynamics of client organizations, candidate motivation, and organizational resonance with specific roles. Beyond her search work, Pat is a founding partner of Globalislocal, a foundation of women leaders investing in the sustainable empowerment of women and children living in extreme poverty. She serves on the investigative division of the Commission on Judicial Selection and Retention of the Philadelphia Bar Association, and was appointed as a member of the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.
