Job Type: Regular
Posted at: Nov 1, 2018
Responsible for successful definition, implementation and delivery of complex programs that require cross-functional collaboration and inter-dependencies between a group of projects and/or related activities within the constraint of scope, quality, time and budget and under circumstances involving multiple moderate-probability, moderate-impact risk factors. Manages a matrix group of employees and contractors who serve on project teams and/or within departmental work groups to achieve a coordinated benefit.
PURPOSE_: This position will support The Front Door Initiative Grant. The Front Door Initiative is a multi-year grant generously funded through the Jefferson Regional Foundation to research and implement a strategic plan for creating an emergency department (ED) at Jefferson Hospital that serves as a model of excellence in addressing the social determinants of health as well as acute physical emergencies.
Representing the front line providers in healthcare, emergency physicians encounter patients in crisis, both real and perceived, at the ‘front door’ of the hospital – the emergency department. The root cause of why a patient ends up in the ED may have much to do with challenges of their particular social environment -- homelessness, domestic violence, mental health and addiction, caregiving challenges and many other issues. By way of highly trained staff and strongly established relationships with community partners, the Jefferson Hospital ED will be uniquely equipped to assess and address barriers to sustained health and wellness.
The Front Door Initiative provides the opportunity for focused evaluation, creativity and innovation in developing a plan for social emergency medicine to serve the unique needs of the Jefferson Hospital service area. The Front Door Initiative is an effort to position the newly renovated Jefferson ED as a community diagnostic center and intervention point on a variety of social issues with the goal of reducing readmissions and non-emergency visits, strengthening community partnerships and the overall health of the most vulnerable in the region.
This Project Manager will oversee the project and the day-to-day operations of the grant. The manager will also be responsible for communications with the funder(s) and any required reporting of the funder, Advisory Committee and Jefferson Hospital Administration. The Project Manager will work with consultants, data experts & outreach workers as needed to ensure to research and implement a strategic plan for creating an ED at Jefferson Hospital that serves as a model of excellence in addressing the “social determinants” of health as well as acute physical emergencies. By way of highly trained staff and strongly established relationships with community partners, the ED will be uniquely equipped to assess and address barriers to sustained health and wellness.
