Jefferson Regional Medical Center (JRMC) seeks a dynamic, experienced and strategic leader as its Chief Operating Officer (COO) to lead physician practice and hospital operations for this mission driven, safety-net hospital in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. With 333 operating beds and $175 million in net patient revenues, JRMC has established itself as a key asset to Jefferson County and Southeast Arkansas. The JRMC Physicians group has over 100 providers and offers a broad array of physician specialty services.
The COO will report to the President & Chief Executive Officer, and serve as the senior executive providing administrative leadership and direction for the Physician Practice Network (including physician recruitment, contracting, and hospital-based physician service agreements), Ancillary Services (including Imaging, Laboratory, Pharmacy, and Therapies), Joint Ventures (including Ambulatory Surgery Center and Home Health), Facilities Management, Environmental Services/Laundry/Food Services, and the Wound Care Program. The COO must demonstrate sound understanding of hospital operations, physician practice operations, healthcare finance (including budget development and administration), quality improvement/safety initiatives, and physician and employee relations.
JRMC seeks a strategic minded, inspirational leader that can continue to position the organization for the future; a passionate and authentic leader that brings a results-oriented approach tempered with compassion; a leader who has a demonstrated track record of successfully leading physician practices and hospital operations, and has the ability to positively engage in the community. This is an exciting time to join a high performing organization that will be embarking on a $150 million project to construct a new replacement patient care building.
