This trusted and established Ambulatory Eye Surgery Center in the Tucson Area is actively interviewing for an ASC Nurse Administrator to lead clinical and administrative operations. Join a great community health system, and lead an experienced and tenured team while taking a central role in directing operations for this busy Outpatient Surgical Center

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer for this community healthcare system, the Eye Center Nurse Administrator will play a large and dynamic role in the operations of this ASC. Supported by an Operating Room (OR) Charge Nurse and a PreOp/Recovery Charge Nurse, the Nurse Administrator will lead clinical and administrative operations for a team of 14 FTEs which include RNs, Certified Ophthalmology Technologists (COT) and Assistants (COA).

This 4 Suite Ophthalmology Surgery Center is regarded as one of the best in the Tucson Area, and has a proud history of great patient outcomes. Offering a full range of Ophthalmology procedures including cataract extraction, eyelid surgery, and glaucoma treatments, the ASC works hard to serve its community. The Nurse Administrator will play a very important role in improving case volumes and maintaining the clinical expertise to match. 

Serving as the point of contact for the Same-Day Surgical Center’s Business Office, the ASC Nurse Administrator will oversee an experienced accounting and finance manager, a tenured materials / supply manager, central scheduling, and Medical Records. This person will play a very central part in the internal performance, external growth, and strategic operations functions of the Eye Surgery Center. Internally, the Administrator will take line item responsibility for natural processes like cost containment, vendor supply negotiation, collections, and transaction processing. 

Working closely with the Physician team, the Eye Center Nurse Administrator will also support the maintenance of clinical logs, regulatory accreditation projects, and compliance with other regulatory agencies. This person will develop and lead engaging clinical training programs for the staff, and will serve as a mentor and leader for a really great team of Registered Nurses and Ophthalmology Technologists.

This unique Southern Arizona town has a long history as a waypoint for travelers and an abundant mining town. The ASC Nurse Administrator will find a slow-paced and relaxed quality it that’s what they’d like, with the knowledge that just across town they can take in a movie, enjoy the many fantastic restaurants, window shop through the many art houses and galleries, or cut a rug at one of Arizona’s best dance halls. Those who prefer the outdoors will find many miles of hiking and biking trails, a well-established flying & skydiving club. In short, there’s something here for everyone. 

Of course, one of the best aspects of working in an Ambulatory Environment is the hours. Nights and weekends off, supportive and tenured executive leadership, and a committed staff all await the Nurse Administrator. Just imagine having the time (and headspace) to enjoy the competitive salary, generous benefits package, and beautiful landscape.
