MEDICAL PRACTICE ADMINISTRATOR

Alaska Retinal Consultants hosts an outstanding team of retinal experts located in Anchorage, Alaska. They seek an experienced Practice Administrator so the medical professionals can focus on what they love to do – healing people.  

ARC is a stable, growing practice with a great reputation that occupies a unique niche – in other words, the practice is poised for growth.

The practice consisting of three physicians, nine mid-level professionals and an excellent, committed team of seven support staff.

The practice continues to grow and plans to expand its clinic locations to other areas of the state.    

Do you have what it takes to run a practice this size?  You will be responsible for all business aspects of the practice and will report directly to the physicians. This includes strategic planning and implementation to further grow and expand the practice to meet the needs of Alaskans.  

If you’re from outside Alaska, and enjoy an adventurous lifestyle – this is the place!  Anchorage is the gateway to adventure in a state so big you can spend a lifetime exploring.  Better yet, we don’t have a state income tax or a state sales tax (yet) depleting your discretionary funds like most places in the country.  This leaves you money ahead for the adventure tools you may need such as kayaks and hiking gear.

The ideal candidate will have a Master’s Degree in business, health care management, accounting or a related field.   A minimum of 3 years of medical practice management is required.

The salary range is $110,000 to $145,000 depending upon your experience combined with excellent benefits. One of the intangible benefits of this position is that you’d work with three physicians that get along well with each other. For candidates outside of Anchorage, relocation benefits are a negotiable item.

Please send your resume to [email protected]. If you’d like more information, you can also call Lynne Curry at (907) 276-4769.
