RE: Service Line Director of Imaging (Req ID # 100567.
Dear Hiring Manager
I have extensive leadership experience in building strong, highly functioning teams and proven skills with practice start-ups, service line implementations and introduction of new technology, equipment and upgrades.
I am able to remain calm under stressful situations and offer sound decisions and guidance to staff, physicians and others during times of uncertainty.
At my previous employer, I was instrumental in directing practice-wide activities which led to an increase in net operating revenue of ten percent in addition to reductions in annual department practice costs and personnel expenses of five and over thirty percent respectively.
For more than seven years served as the chairperson of a network clinical experts committee providing leadership for a 20 member subcommittee representing over 100 practice locations across the United States.
The Committee's activities emphasized driving network as well as individual practice cultures of excellence, improving efficiency standards and implementing employee recognition.
As chairperson, I was also responsible for monthly reports of Committee activities to physician leaders and annual reports at the physician leadership meeting.
My education, unique experiences, broad scope responsibilities and skills are consistent with the qualifications of Service Line Director of Imaging.
I have enclosed my resume and would appreciate a formal meeting at your earliest convenience to discuss this exciting opportunity and how I can meet your needs and make a positive contribution to the PeaceHealth team.
Sincerely, Patricia A.
