Director of Performance Improvement
SEARHC was established in 1975 under the provisions of the Indian Self-Determination Act as a non-profit health consortium which serves the health interests of the residents of Southeast Alaska. The intent of this legislation was to have Indian Health Service programs and facilities turned over to tribal management. Our contracting with IHS began in 1976 when we took over management of the Community Health Aides Program. In 1982, we took over operation of the IHS Juneau clinic, now the Ethel Lund Medical Center, and took over operation of Sitka’s Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital in 1986. We are one of the oldest and largest Native-run health organizations in the nation.
The Performance Improvement Director is responsible for the leadership, strategic direction and management of the day to day activities of all Performance Improvement/Quality and Risk Management programs at SouthEast Alaska Health Consortium (SEARHC). This includes accreditation, infection prevention and control, employee health screening, patient safety, risk management, compliance, credentialing, coordination of regulatory and accreditation compliance survey, and all other quality related activities.
