Healthcare executive jobs aren’t a cakewalk but can be satisfying. It takes talent and grit to oversee a comprehensive health services organization that provides primary care, education, and research. Executive compensation is designed to attract the right person, critical to the success of any healthcare facility. But how does a healthcare organization find its own executives with talent and grit who also fit into its culture?
Executive Jobs That Need to Be Filled
Medical executive jobs are projected to grow 32 percent through 2030. This growth rate is much faster than the average across all occupations. Each year, another 51,800 openings are projected for health services management. Some of those hires are due to the replacement of current executives transitioning to other occupations or exiting the labor force, as in retirement.
The Right Stuff
Healthcare executive jobs require regular interaction with doctors, surgeons, nurses, and technicians. Though they rarely meet patients directly, their work with policy and budgets for the healthcare organization significantly impacts patient care. Healthcare executives shape the policy that runs the facility and improve the patients’ experience. They also make large-scale decisions for the healthcare facility. All of these responsibilities make finding the right stuff more critical than ever.
Just what does a healthcare executive job entail? The responsibilities vary from one facility to another, from nursing homes to surgery, physical therapy, and other healthcare facilities. Healthcare executive jobs require the assumption of a wide range of roles. The executive needs to be flexible enough to assume new roles throughout their employment. Some executives manage an entire facility, while others focus on a single department in a facility. Physicians manage patients directly, but the healthcare executive’s jobs are to oversee the facility itself, and the framework of patient care.
Executive Jobs Skills
Healthcare executives have to be passionate personalities. Executive jobs demand energy to improve healthcare and patient experience. Those jobs also require a long list of skills starting with business administration skills. The Executive must be financially responsible and productive. Another requirement is stellar communication skills. Executives must communicate with physicians, insurance collectors as well as various training levels of staff.
Teamwork is critical to a healthcare facility’s success. The right executive can protect the culture and team member bond to create new levels of care. His or her leadership and organization skills are key to goal achievement, team motivation, and efficiency creation.
Knowledge and understanding of the healthcare industry and specifically, of every aspect of patient care is another required skill.
All of those skills listed don’t help if the executive doesn’t have budget knowledge and skill. Knowing how to budget ensures the facility is profitable in the future. And even with budget capability, without exacting standards of healthcare, the success of the facility is doomed.
