Senior Leadership Healthcare Recruiter

Surgical Care Affiliates (SCA) was launched in 1982 by Joel Gordon, a healthcare services pioneer. In 2009, we revised and updated our values, mission, and vision, based on a democratic process that included all of our teammates from across the country. Today, we operate 185 surgical facilities, including surgery centers, surgical hospitals, and hospital surgery departments, in 34 states. We employ approximately 5,000 teammates and more than 7,500 physicians perform procedures in SCA facilities each year. More than 2,000 of these physicians, along with 45+ leading health systems, including Sutter Health, Catholic Health Initiatives, Geisinger Health System, MemorialCare Health System, Saint Alphonsus Health System, and Texas Health Resources, are partnered with us. SCA facilities generate more than $1.3 billion in system-wide NPR, enabling significant investments in systems and processes that create measurable impact. This includes: *Clinical systems (e.g., clinical toolkits and checklists, clinical training, and detailed clinical variance analyses) *Operating systems (e.g., schedule efficiency, supply chain management, benchmarking) *Financial systems (e.g., precise case costing and analytics) Our values as defined by our teammates are: clinical quality, integrity, service excellence, teamwork, accountability, and continuous improvement. Our mission is to care for our patients, serve our physicians, and improve healthcare in America. Our vision is to be the partner of choice for surgical care.
