Come Lead the Orange County Health Care Agency into the Future!

The Orange County Health Care Agency (HCA) is a regional interdisciplinary health jurisdiction and an accredited health department, charged with protecting and promoting individual, family and community health through partnerships and coordination of public and private sector resources. Many of the HCA`s services are preventative in nature and therefore are not readily apparent to the public. Some examples include food protection, monitoring the quality of ocean water, mental health services, alcohol and drug use services, communicable disease control, public health field nursing and public health clinics.

With direction from both the Deputy County Executive Officer, County Executive Officer, and policy direction from the Board of Supervisors, the Director of the Health Care Agency (HCA) has full responsibility for the administration of HCA including its five major programs: Mental Health and Recovery Services, Public Health Services, Regulatory/Medical Health Services, Correctional Health Services, and Administrative Services. Orange County is seeking an experienced, collaborative, energetic, and results-oriented leader to serve as the new Health Care Agency Director.

Those with an ability to cast fresh vision, build a high-functioning executive team, and who are passionate about human services are desired. The ability to take this Agency to the next level through a process of establishing an organizational mission, vision, and establishing new goals is essential. The most competitive candidates have the knowledge and experience to guide the Agency forward, while ensuring a culture of high performance and high-quality service is maintained.

The ideal candidate understands mid to large county government administration and how to develop stable, sustainable programs. A desire to build trust and collaborate with the Board is essential. Experienced leaders with a robust background administering mid to large public health and/or human services programs are encouraged to apply, especially those who possess some working experience with Medi-Cal and Medicare administration. The annual salary range is $144,206 to $310,876; placement within this range is dependent on qualifications and experience.
