Position Description

The role you would play:
 
Get ready to roll up your sleeves and have fun in the process. The Acute Dialysis Healthcare  Administrator (aka Acute Facility Administrator or Acute FA) role can be exceptionally rewarding and can also carry a unique set of challenges at DaVita. There's a whole lot to manage and move forward as an
FA. You and your team have goals tied to quality and clinical outcomes, and you receive profit sharing bonuses based on meeting those goals.
You're in charge. 

The four main areas you're accountable for include:

Contract Management - Exceed expectations of our hospital partners.
Acute FAs adeptly manage the business aspects of our hospital partnerships. You are responsible for adhering to our contractual responsibilities and maintaining strong relationships with hospital administration and staff. You anticipate the hospital's needs and ensure their satisfaction with our
service.

Financial Management - Drive bottom line results.  Successful FAs ensure the complete operation and performance of their clinic including all financial
aspects. FAs manage budgets, forecast expenses, communicate with vendors, order supplies, and ensure compliance with public health and safety standards.

Patient Care - Impact patient lives and deliver optimal clinical outcomes.
Success in an acute dialysis hospital setting is measured by how well patients respond to their dialysis treatments. The FA is responsible for monitoring patient clinical outcomes utilizing DaVita's quality metric in coordination with doctors, nurses and the interdisciplinary team. 

Teamwork - Develop, mentor, and inspire a cohesive team. Our best FAs thrive when they build a team of clinicians to achieve optimal results. FAs interview and hire, monitor compliance, conduct teammate evaluations, lead teammate satisfaction initiatives and incorporate Core Values within all aspects of the clinic.

While this role is said to be one of most challenging, you'll receive the training, resources and support you'll need from your leaders and peers.  This is a village after all!
