Human Resources Director

Organization: Travis County Healthcare District
Salary: Negotiable
Close Date: Open

Job Description:

The Travis County Healthcare District (District) is a limited-purpose taxing district created to provide healthcare services to indigent County residents. The District owns two hospitals and is responsible for 15 community health centers (Centers) which are operated through contracts on behalf of the District. The 15 community health centers are designated as Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). Collectively, they provide care to approximately 50,000 individuals annually. In early 2009, responsibility for the community health centers will be assumed by a new 501(c)(3) not-for-profit entity created for this purpose - - the Central Texas Community Health Centers (CTCHC). The District will hold the FQHC status for the community health centers and CTCHC will operate the community health centers.

The community health centers, now run by the City of Austin on behalf of the District, serve individuals up to 200% of the federal poverty guidelines, providing access to physicians, nurse triage, pharmacy, laboratory, x-ray services, primary care to HIV/AIDS patients, dental care, health services for the homeless and behavioral health services. CTCHC will assume operational responsibility for the community health centers. It is anticipated that CTCHC will employ the more than 400 personnel currently employed by the City of Austin to run the community health centers. The Human Resources Director (H/R Director) will initially be employed by the Travis County Healthcare District but will become the Human Resources Director for and, therefore, an employee of, CTCHC upon its creation in early 2009.

This is a rare opportunity to design, implement and manage a cutting edge, non-traditional comprehensive Human Resources program to support a progressive, start-up, not-for-profit health care organization. The initial task for the H/R Director will be to participate with District and current community health center management in establishing a human resources philosophy, strategic direction, goals and objectives for CTCHC and then to develop, implement and administer a comprehensive program consistent with the plan.

Requires at least a bachelorís degree related to human resources or management and five years of human resources management level experience to include two years in healthcare. Prefer experience with start-ups, mergers/acquisitions and/or organizational/cultural change management.

A highly competitive salary and benefit package is available. The beginning salary is negotiable depending on qualifications.
