Key Qualities to Look For When Hiring a Healthcare Regional Manager

Hiring is one of the most important processes in the healthcare industry. Hiring the wrong person for a role risks poor results for your entire service, and in regional management especially it can be highly detrimental. We’ve compiled what we have found to be the key attributes of a successful Healthcare Regional Manager. See these below, as well as our reasons why they are so important in a professional healthcare setting.

Time management

As with any other management role, time management is a key component of success as a Healthcare Regional Manager. Allocating the right amount of time across an entire region of employees and clinics is a difficult process, and developing time management skills when on the job only exposes this weakness further, running the region’s clinics at a lower standard throughout the period in question as the manager builds their competence levels. In this case, hiring an individual with strong time management skills is essential and eliminates any transition time.

Organisation skills

A Healthcare Regional Manager has a large range of responsibilities – the majority of which revolve around ensuring that all of the clinics and hospitals in the region have the necessary support and functionality. This requires significant organisation and delegation skills, as the wide range of support requirements for each clinic cannot be supported when entirely disorganised. Hire individuals with experience in complex workplaces and significant organisations underneath them as a means of ensuring that all necessary tasks see completion.

High level communication skills

Large organisations such as regional health networks feature a range of individuals all with different character and personality traits. This is, of course, an integral part of operating such a large healthcare group, but communicating with everyone effectively is an essential part of the process. High-level communication skills mean that the right hire gets through to everyone in an organisation, conveying the group’s mission and long-term plans in an easily understood way.
