The Career as a Hospital Administrator Becoming a Hospital Administrator would be a career choice of mine. Hospital Administrators hold the great responsibility of directing the hospital ND can hold a position as an administrator over one department or several departments. This is a very prominent profession within the health community. Other duties include: managing physicians and other administrators, maintaining community relations, budgeting, customer satisfaction, etc. (Degree) The History of Hospital Administration began in the early 1 ass’s during the growth and expansion of hospital’s era.
The first Hospital Administrator’s main focus was to finance and operate the hospital to leave physicians free to focus on caring for patients. Now Hospital Administrators focus on market watch, organizational structure, profit, medical staffing, competition and unusual emergency situations (Understanding). The education of a Hospital Administrator is a fairly simple plan. One would have to obtain a bachelors degree, usually in business administration, and then further their education by getting their Master’s in Health Administration, Health Care Administration or Public Health (how).
Many colleges/universities offer a Master’s in Health Administration degree, including traditional universities, night and online schools. The number of Hospital Administrators may vary from Hospital to Hospital. The number of administrators can vary depending on the size of the organization. Here in Columbia, Palmetto Health has 10 Hospital Administrators including one Chief Executive Officer, President, several Vice Presidents and a Chief Medical Officer. Many of the administrators have earned a Master’s in Health Administration and one of the administrators is currently enrolled in a AMAH program (Palmetto).
When doing this research, I didn’t see a license required for the state of South Carolina o hold a position as a Hospital Administrator in a regular short stay health care facility. There is a license required for Long Term Health Care Administrators as listed on Sac’s Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation Website. This document is referring to Nursing Homes and Community Residential Homes. The document required one Hospital Administrator to be a member of the board on both Nursing Homes and Community Residential Homes. There are several professional associations that Hospital Administrators could become members of.
