Manager Inpatient Infection Prevention

An exciting opportunity has just opened for an Inpatient Hospital Infection Specialist Manager. Apply today, and join this experienced team in one of the Seattle Area’s most trusted medical centers and health systems.

The Infection Manager Specialist at this hospital will play a crucial role in keeping the patients and employees safe. Reporting to the Administrative Director of System Wide Infection Control, you will form and manage an interdisciplinary team of RNs, MLTs, and Infection Prevention Coordinators to lead infection control processes throughout the hospital. This means that the Hospital Infection Manager will wear many hats in this inpatient acute care environment.

You will serve as a thought leader for the hospital, educating practitioners and support staff on the various causes and control processes for infection risk. To successfully fulfil this role, you will need to be equal parts communicator and influencer. Integrating the philosophies of infection prevention will require a deep understanding of the processes and components of the hospital, engaging hospital leadership in the process, and effective reporting of progress.

Working closely with this medical center’s inpatient laboratory, the Infection Specialist Manager will work closely with RN Nursing Unit Leaders, the Quality Improvement Team, Physicians, and the Infection Prevention and Control Committee to develop and implement hospital-wide measures that prevent the transmission of infectious diseases.

At the heart of this system is an Acute Care hospital that is well-known in the region for its community service and support, and well-known in the industry for great patient outcomes and high HCAHPS scores. Offering a full suite of services, including neurology, orthopedics, women’s services, cardiovascular care, and behavioral health, this hospital is a vital part of the community support network in the area. The Infection Specialist Manager will also play in integral part in keeping the clinics and outpatient practices associated with the hospital free and clear of infection risk.

The Greater Seattle Area boasts something for every type of person, from the urban attractions of the Seattle Metro Area to the natural attractions and wilds of Northern Washington State. The Infection Specialist Manager need only take a short drive to enjoy world renowned restaurants, casinos, legendary live music, and some of the Northwest’s best wineries. 

If you’re more of the adventurous type, you won’t need to look hard to find hiking, biking, boating, beachcombing, and the beautiful slopes of Mt. Rainer. If you add all of these great factors, combined with an affordable cost-of-living, some of the best schools in the nations, and the nicest people around, the Manager of Infection Prevention will understand why Greater Seattle is quickly gaining popularity among the old and the young.

The Hospital Infection Specialist Manager will take responsibility for a mission critical support activity over a growing health system. As complex as this task is, you’ll be supported by a friendly and dedicated staff, a progressive leadership team, and a total compensation package (salary and benefits) that is both competitive and generous.
