This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced or aspiring Nurse Executive who knows the day to day of maintaining large, complex service lines, and knows how to provide collaborative leadership. In this role, you will manage a vibrant and Women's and Children's Services Department that offers an award winning high-risk pregnancy program, remodeled delivery rooms, a high-acuity neonatal intensive care program (NICU), private mother / baby rooms, and a dedicated surgical delivery staff. As you will find, the Birthing Center Director of Nursing will oversee an established and extensive Women and Children's Service Line that has been recognized by UNICEF as a Baby Friendly Hospital, and is consistently awarded for high quality care and great patient outcomes.

At the heart of this role is maintaining and improving all of the wonderful and impactful services offered to the community.

Whether you're exploring the Spanish Missions that dot the coast, taking in live music, sampling the local vintage at one of the many wineries, eating great seafood, or just kicking back at the beach, you can do it at whatever pace you like. With great schools, close proximity to the San Francisco Bay Area, and a tight knit community, why wouldn't you want to explore?
