This outstanding non-profit health system in the San Francisco Bay Area is actively interviewing for an CLS Administrative Director to lead clinical and business operations at an extremely busy Regional Laboratory. Join this award winning health system, and play an important part in executive leadership.
Reporting to the Vice President of Operations, the Administrative Regional Laboratory Director will have the opportunity to directly affect clinical efficacy and efficiency over a large portion of the health system. Working in collaboration with Executive leaders across the continuum of care, the Administrative Director will oversee an extremely busy facility with a large team of Laboratory Leaders. Supporting the Director are two General Laboratory Operations Managers for the day and evening shifts, three General Lab Supervisors working swing and overnight shifts, and a team of Quality Assurance Laboratory professionals.
Directly supported by this large team, the Regional Lab Director will oversee 100+ FTEs in this self-contained technical, pathology, and research laboratory. As such, you will need a strong blend of clinical and administrative skills to be successful.
Serving as a subject matter expert on all manner of laboratory testing procedures, from medium to high complexity, you will provide guidance and accountability for adherence to CLIA requirements. Some days you will serve your staff as a teacher, other days as a mentor, and others as an expert. A team-based approach to this large, diverse laboratory staff is crucial for guaranteeing continued buy-in, trust, and efficiency from each member. Actively managing the Microbiologists, Hematologists, Cytotechnologists, Histologists, Phlebotomists, Chemists, and various support staff through direct coaching, team and personal development initiatives, and clear performance expectations will help the CLS Lab Director continue the upward trajectory of quality improvement for this lab and for the health care system.
Administratively, the Regional CLS Laboratory Director will apply CLIA and CAP guidelines to ensure the laboratory’s compliance with regulatory and accrediting agencies for clinical lab testing. You will work to ingrain the lab’s test development and validation processes with the same high-quality standards that you’d expect from a respected health system. In addition to actively overseeing and managing the day-to-day financial performance of the laboratory, you will also take a large role in deciding the strategic direction and special project participation of the laboratory.
One of the nation’s most recognized metropolitan areas, the San Francisco Bay Area boasts something for everyone. In the deep, giant redwood forests, white sand beaches, and craggy coastal cliffs, you’ll find miles of hiking trails and relaxing solitude. In the technological capital of the world, Silicon Valley, you’ll find a burgeoning entrepreneurial environment which never ceases to inspire. Of course, San Francisco proper let you down, with a world-class restaurant industry, a legendary live-music scene, and a long history of artistic license. Whether the CLS Regional Laboratory Director desires quiet serenity or city action, you’ll find it around every corner.
The Regional Director of Laboratory will play a vital role in this well-established, large non-profit healthcare system. This person will directly develop, support, and promote strategic growth and operational efficiency. For all of this, the Director will receive a great retirement package and generous benefits, as well as a competitive compensation package.
