East Coast Health owned by Glamorgan Spring Bay Council have a Practice / Business Manager opportunity available on the stunning east coast of Tasmania to lead its practices at Triabunna and Bicheno.  Applicants will have a sound understanding of the health industry together with developed or developing business skills to ensure the practice moves from a surviving to thriving operation.

By working with the health professionals and community the Practice / Business Manager will have the scope to investigate and revise the business model for the practice.  The ability to balance best practice health care models against business viability metrics will be a key focus of the position.

Aside from business improvement the Practice/Business Manager will have the ongoing responsibility for staffing the practices both health and administration, accreditation and asset and inventory management.  The Practice/Business Manager will work closely with information technology providers to ensure systems support effective and efficient operations.  Medicare management alongside coordinating Centre responses to National, State and regional health issues are also responsibilities of the role.

The practices both respond to a range of walk-in emergencies and provide first response care until other arrangements can be made.  As a result, the successful applicant will be able to remain calm under pressure, be able to prioritise well and be solution oriented.

The practice has traditionally operated on a team of four doctors plus locums and allied health professionals with two registered nurses spread between the two locations.  The Practice/Business Manager is the only role that works across both practices.

The role has previously been filled on a part-time basis and Council are willing to continue this arrangement.

Given the location of the Practices the communities they serve have traditionally been retiree focused. However recent years have seen this changing as people seek a greater work life balance and as more people realise ongoing capacity to work remotely in a pristine environment.  The demographics change and swell considerably during holiday seasons.
