System Director of Clinical Risk Management | RN | January 2022 Start Date or Sooner | Alabama
Due to retirement and simultaneously scheduled promotion, at one of our longstanding clients, Galileo Search has been engaged to begin a preliminary national search. Our ideal candidate would be prepared to accommodate a start date near the end of 2021 or, ideally January 2022.
Scheduling initial onsite interviews, the approaching holidays, working a professional notice at a current employer, and then relocation can be stressful enough. This timeline should facilitate a smoother transition for both the selected candidate and the hiring organization.
Our client is an award-winning organization ranked among the Nation’s 100 Top Hospitals based on overall organizational performance, patient care, operational efficiency, and financial stability.
The city is surrounded by pristine lakes and is only a short drive to majestic mountain ranges, the Gulf of Mexico beaches, or the Atlantic Ocean. The area ranks in the Top 25 U.S. places for the overall low cost of living, affordable housing, and low property tax.
