As one of British Columbia's six regional health authorities, Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) is a world class innovator in medical care, research and teaching, delivering service to more than one million BC residents living in Vancouver, Vancouver's North Shore, Richmond, the Sea-to-Sky Highway, Sunshine Coast, Bella Bella, Bella Coola, and the Central Coast. We are dedicated to delivering the highest quality services in acute and primary care, community-based residential and home health care, mental health, substance use, public health and research. We are an organization fully committed to supporting healthy lives in communities with the robust resources of 13 hospitals, a number of community health centres, 2,500 physicians, more than 13,500 full time staff, and over $3 billion in funding.
But that's only part of the story. VCH is about something bigger; this is a place where we embrace thinking boldly, taking smart risks, and "going first" – on everything from new surgical techniques to funding models – when we believe it will lead to the best possible outcomes for patients and their families. We are proud to hold best-in-class awards in everything from research, surgical care and infection control, to harm reduction, community care, communications and community engagement. At our core, we are a people-focused organization where entrepreneurial spirit runs deep, and opportunity exists for all those who see themselves in the transformation of health care as we know it.
We now have the opportunity for a Manager, Home Health to drive the delivery of effective and efficient home health services, in Powell River. You will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of care management, rehabilitation (OT/PT), home and ambulatory care nursing and home support among other services. One of the key responsibilities of this role is to ensure a smooth transition from the acute care environment to appropriate community health services. As the Manager, you will recognize and value the importance of the client/patient perspective, and will consider this viewpoint when developing care pathways and effective models of care.
The ideal candidate brings experience that includes responsibility for the provision of home health services as a nurse. Alternatively, an allied health professional who has worked in home health will also be considered.
