You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Director of Quality.
You know how to move fast. You know how to stay organized. You know how to have fun.
Youâ™re equally comfortable with leading Quality programs, interpreting and presenting Data, aligning with Performance Excellence initiatives, managing Infection Prevention, Personnel management and oversight, and Fiscal responsibilities.
Youâ™re great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.
Reporting directly to Good Samaritanâ™s CMO, the Director of Quality will also interact with system leaders as the primary owner of quality, infection prevention and performance excellence for the care site. With approximately 4 direct reports, and additional indirect reports, this leader is accountable for educating stakeholders on all aspects of quality.
Good Samaritan Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. At our 234-bed Level II Trauma Center, our mission is to bring health and hope to the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other. Weâ™re especially proud of our people, who helped make us one of Americaâ™s 100 Best Hospitals according to Healthgrades.
Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, weâ™ve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.
Together weâ™ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. Weâ™ll encourage joy and take pride in our integrity.
Weâ™ll laugh at each otherâ™s jokes (even the bad ones). Weâ™ll hello and high five. Weâ™ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.
Weâ™re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.

Assure all departments, both clinical and non-clinical, have quality metrics identified, and meet acceptable parameters.
