Position Description

The Regional Practice Manager provides leadership, direction, coordination, and administration of operations for a group of corporate clinics. The Regional Practice Manager is responsible for the oversight of a number of employer (onsite and near site) clinics in a regional territory, including ordering of supplies, scheduling, running the clinic compliance programs, management of non-provider medical personnel, and for assuring Paladina Health physicians have the resources and tools necessary to be successful.  Because this is a regional position, the Regional Practice Manager must be willing to travel extensively throughout the region and accept responsibility for meeting financial, regulatory and satisfaction goals for a number of geographically dispersed clinics. Additionally, the Regional Practice Manager will work with our corporate client’s benefits department to assure their plan design goals are being met.

Paladina Health builds and manages employer-sponsored primary care health clinics around the country.   Launched from scratch in 2011 to create a disruptively better healthcare model, Paladina now has over 50 clinics across 14 states from coast-to-coast.  The company's innovative delivery model is moving beyond the "early adopter" stage and gaining traction across a variety of different customer segments, driving high growth and organizational focus on scaling strategies and capabilities.  Paladina is looking for talented, mission-oriented, entrepreneurial leaders to help drive Paladina's successful expansion.

Although Paladina Health is a wholly owned subsidiary of $16B healthcare services provider DaVita Healthcare Partners, it operates as a relatively independent startup, with sufficient autonomy to grow rapidly and to make decisions that are right for the business.  Because it operates as a startup, teammates must be able to excel in unstructured, entrepreneurial environments and they must be willing to adapt to change quickly.  Every day brings new challenges and obstacles that require innovative and unique solutions.  Paladina Health teammates must be enthusiastic about achieving the end goal of helping "fix healthcare" and they must be willing to help the team succeed as a whole.   Additional information can be found at www.paladinahealth.com.
