General Summary

The mission of the Business Continuity (BC) Planner is to design and implement a limited scope business continuity program at our corporate headquarters working with Emergency Preparedness and other stakeholders. Reporting to the Program Manager for Emergency Preparedness, the BC Planner will develop business continuity plans and processes focused on certain departments that support operations across our healthcare system including revenue cycle operations, supply chain management, and payroll. Additionally, the planner will review and make recommendations for the use of business continuity planning software and will work with the Emergency Preparedness Program to identify business continuity tools and processes that could be replicated by staff at our institutions. The BC Planner may be asked to participate in emergency response events, if any, including on evenings and weekends. While technology dependencies will be relevant to business continuity planning discussions, this is not a technology-focused/IT disaster recovery position. Opportunities to continue work beyond initial scope, estimated at 6-7 months' duration, will be considered based on available funding.
