A long standing Eye Surgery Center in the Corvallis, OR area is seeking a Director of Nursing. The Nurse Director will work with a tenured team of surgical nurses, surgical technologist and Ophthalmologists. The DON will report to a Physician Practice Administrator that handles the physicians' business at both their ASC and Clinic locations. The Ambulatory Surgery Center operates one to two days per week dependent on the patient case load. In addition to providing breaks for staff in the operating room, the ASC Nurse Director will oversee CMS and the state of Oregon compliance. Moreover, infection prevention, quality management, performance improvement, staff education, hiring/firing and general HR duties will be part of this import Director of Nursing position.

The Ophthalmology Eye Center Director of Nursing position has become available after a longstanding DON has put in their notice for retirement. The previous Director of Nursing has paved the way for a smooth transition after 35 successful years with this practice. The MDs and clinical team are great to work with and truly a tight-knit group.  

The Director of Nursing will enjoy working at this ambulatory surgery center that is conveniently located along the I-5 in Oregon. The DON will be able to commute to the surgery center on days when surgeries are occurring and will be able to perform other administrative duties remotely if they wish.
