University of Texas Southwestern (UTSW) Medical Center is recruiting a chief nursing officer over its university hospitals. UTSW Medical Center is one of the country's leading medical research, education and clinical institutions and ranks among the top academic medical centers in the world.
Located in the Southwestern Medical District, a 10-minute drive northwest of downtown Dallas, UTSW Medical Center is situated on a modern, 231-acre campus. The UTSW University Hospitals consist of William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital – a state-of-the-art 460-bed, $800 million hospital built in 2014 – and Zale Lipshy University Hospital – a premier neurological diagnostic and treatment center with 148 beds, as well as several outpatient clinics. A new 12-story, 300-bed patient tower at Clements University Hospital is currently under construction and scheduled to open in the fall of 2020. The third tower will serve as the clinical home for the Peter O’Donnell Jr. Brain Institute, consolidate acute inpatient care services currently provided at Zale Lipshy University Hospital, and add operating rooms, interventional suites, a newly expanded Emergency Department, and two new parking facilities. The project enhances both the quality of care and the efficiency of delivery to reduce expenses while accommodating growth.
Reporting to the system chief nurse executive, the CNO for the university hospitals will be responsible for nursing practice throughout the hospital organization, including the inpatient, operating and emergency departments, with FTE responsibility for approximately 2,090 FTEs, a gross revenue budget of $746.9 million and an expense budget of $290.3 million. Key priorities for the CNO include continuing the journey towards Magnet re-designation, with an estimated submission date of August 2020. Additionally, successfully transitioning nursing practice from Zale Lipshy University Hospital to the new Clements University Hospital tower in fall 2020.
The ideal candidate will have at least seven years of progressive nurse leadership experience in a large, complex health system, ideally with some portion in an urban academic or teaching setting. Knowledge of the Magnet journey is preferred but not required. A BSN and graduate degree in nursing or a relevant field in required, and candidates with a PhD or doctoral degree in nursing will be looked upon favorably.
