Health services directors are responsible for managing a medical department or facility. These administrative positions coordinate and direct healthcare services with a focus on efficiency and quality.
Typical duties include scheduling, representing the facility, managing patient fees and billing, budgeting and ensuring the facility is in compliance with all laws and regulations. Those considering health services director careers should have strong analytical skills, be detail oriented and good problem solvers as they play an important role in ensuring the facility runs smoothly.
In order to qualify for health services director jobs, candidates need at least a bachelor’s degree, although a master’s degree in health services, public health, public administration, business administration or a related field are recommended. Some medical facilities prefer to place experienced healthcare professionals, such as physicians, nurses or therapists, in charge of a department.
