Summary:

We are searching for Senior Project Manager to handle deployment of technology around construction projects– someone who works well in a fast-paced hospital setting. You must be familiar with building activations, expansions, and renovations and impacts to technology systems and infrastructure. On top of that you must be knowledgeable around these areas as they relate to a healthcare setting.  You have to  manage projects regarding systems implementation and interaction with other systems across the Integrated Delivery Systems in compliance with Texas Children’s Strategic Plan, JCAHO standards and I.S. policies and Governance processes.

 

In this position, you will lead and be responsible for projects which are complex, multi-disciplinary and/or enterprise-wide; and to provide expertise to short and long-term assignments internal and external to the designated areas of responsibilities around building out computer and phone systems for all expansion projects within the Texas Children’s system.  You will have supervisory responsibilities around managing both our internal project teams as well as working with vendors and architects to design solutions along the way. 

 

Key functions of this role include providing technical expertise, team development, monitoring, and guidance; work process analysis and improvement, data analysis and creative problem solving, and facilitation of various strategic initiatives. You will be responsible for reporting and guiding the state of deployment on projects involving workstations, phones, and networking equipment. 

 

This is not your typical project manager that does software testing or development, but rather equipment deployment and space planning.  A head for design is going to be crucial.  Do you know about network cabling, deploying equipment, and large scale construction?  Then you are who we are looking for.
