The Senior Vice President, Ophthalmology will report to the Chief Operating Officer (COO) and will be responsible for the Ophthalmology and ASC business unit. This includes driving overall strategy and execution of the ophthalmology practices. The SVP, Ophthalmology will work with the medical doctor leaders to ensure talent management, facility oversight, patient service and satisfaction and drive all other operational elements to deliver effective, efficient, and world-class service and outcomes.

The most significant aspects of this position will be the strategic and day-to-day operational management of the multi-state, multi-unit ophthalmology businesses. The ideal candidate will bring a track record of leading other successful multi-site healthcare businesses through growth and operational improvement.  He/she will bring strong operational disciplines to the organization and will have an innate understanding of the drivers of profitability while maintaining a culture of clinical quality.  The company has a plan to continue strong growth and the SVP will build a scalable infrastructure to take the company to the next level.  This executive must support and share the vision for the entire organization and operate in concert with cross-functional leaders to deliver results.

The SVP, Ophthalmology is responsible for challenging the status quo of the current activities to ensure the company is looking towards new and innovative ideas, practices and solutions to address changes in the healthcare delivery system as it relates to ophthalmology and vision care. This executive will continually evaluate new ideas, new technology and solutions with the goal of enhancing quality, access, productivity and lowering healthcare cost.

The SVP, Ophthalmology will also be an integral player in the ophthalmology mergers and acquisition process…..participating in management presentations, “interviews”, relationship development, due diligence, etc.  This begins the doctor/office relationships even before practice closure thus improving the integration and practice build. 

Every bit as important as operations management, this position “owns” the doctor/practice leader/support staff relationships.  Physician relationships are absolutely an essential ingredient of this position.  The incumbent must be able to embrace the staff at all levels, being their conduit to the  EyeCare Partners organization, being their champion, as appropriate, for practice enhancements, and serving as a trusted advisor.  It is an extremely important “balancing role” – balancing operational excellence without stepping on individual doctor/patient relationships and care.
