Job Description

Adventist Healthcare

Care. Compassion. Community.

Adventist HealthCare (AHC), based in Rockville, Maryland, is a faith-based, not-for-profit organization of dedicated professionals who work together each day to provide excellent wellness, disease management and health-care services to the community. Adventist was founded upon the principle of wellness more than 100 years ago and today provides innovative care to heart attack victims, cancer patients and premature babies and the community.

AHCs integrated, health-care delivery network includes four nationally accredited acute care and specialty hospitals, mental health services and home health agencies serving the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Each year, Adventist provides high quality, compassionate care for more than 450,000 men, women and children in the community through its nearly 5,500 employees, 2,000 physicians and almost 1,200 volunteers.


The Director Population Health will work directly with the leadership of Adventist HealthCare Population Health and Post-Acute Care Services Division in the design and implementation of strategies for population health programs aimed to improve health outcomes, reduce health care spend, and improve quality and patient satisfaction.
