The UT Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW) William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital seeks a clinical leader in nursing as the Director, Nursing Women’s Services. We seek a strong leader in nursing with a powerful combination of vision, energy, and leadership who will embrace and model the patient-centric culture within UTSW. UTSW ranks as the No. 1 hospital in Dallas-Fort Worth and as the No. 2 hospital in Texas by U.S. News & World Report. 

As the face of women's health and nursing care, the Director will play a prominent role in developing a compelling vision for clinical services within the Nursing Division and Women’s Services units. This is an opportunity to develop an infrastructure to support the Division that will be recognized regionally and nationally as an innovative market leader for providing comprehensive and high-quality women’s services, clinical nursing services, and cutting-edge clinical research. 

Reporting to the Chief Nursing Officer, the Director will have responsibility for leading, planning, and coordinating divisional/departmental growth, quality/patient safety, customer service, physician and nursing integration, and consistency for the delivery of nursing women’s services throughout UTSW. Additionally, this Director will collaborate with key constituencies throughout UTSW and its clinical partners to expand clinical trials, advance clinical, and to develop dashboards that measure financial performance, patient satisfaction, and clinical outcomes. The Director will also lead efforts to promote awareness of the Division and its practice within the community and gain market share for cancer services. In fact, the Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center was designated by the National Cancer Institute in 2015 as a comprehensive center.                                                     


The new Director will be a transformational nursing clinician and an executive who can lead change in a highly productive clinical Division.
