VCH Careers is undergoing a small technical issue with our systems. We are aware of the issue, and are working diligently to fix it. Please check back later today and we should be back up and running. Thank you for being patient, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Utilization Director, Perioperative Services


As one of British Columbia's six regional health authorities, we, Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) are a world class innovator in medical care, research and teaching, delivering service to more than one million BC residents living in Vancouver, Vancouver's North Shore, Richmond, the Sea-to-Sky Highway, Sunshine Coast, Bella Bella, Bella Coola, and the Central Coast. We are dedicated to delivering the highest quality services in areas including primary care, community-based residential and home health care, mental health, substance use, public health and research. We are an organization fully committed to supporting healthy lives in healthy communities with the robust resources of 13 hospitals, a number of community health centres, 2,500 physicians, more than 13,500 full time staff, and over $3 billion in funding.


But that's only part of the story. VCH is about something bigger; this is a place where we embrace thinking boldly, taking smart risks, and "going first" – on everything from new surgical techniques to funding models – when we believe it will lead to the best possible outcomes for patients and their families. We are proud to hold best-in-class awards in everything from research, surgical care and infection control, to harm reduction, community care, communications and community engagement. At our core, we are a people-focused organization where entrepreneurial spirit runs deep, and opportunity exists for all those who see themselves in the transformation of health care as we know it.


We now have the opportunity for a Director to join VCH within the Vancouver Acute Community of Care. Reporting directly to a Senior Director, you will be responsible for day-to-day operations of the Medical Device Reprocessing and the Operating Room Equipment & Supplies department in Vancouver Acute (VA). VA is defined as Vancouver General Hospital, UBC Hospital, and the Eye Care Centre. You  will ensure the integration of the non-labour components with other departments across the system, and externally, to ensure effective business operations in the portfolio.


As the ideal candidate, you bring experience at a Manager or Director level overseeing the supply inventory and costs of medical technology and/or equipment from within a health system. Alternatively, experience may come from post-secondary, private sector (i.e. vendor side), biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, or biomedical. Prior experience having worked in a large, complex system navigating through a wide range of stakeholders will be key. Healthcare/medical experience is an asset.


This is an exciting leadership opportunity to have meaningful impact on the delivery of care with VCH. 


If this sounds exciting to you, we would love to connect with you.  Reach out now to Donna Sangster, Management Recruiter at 604-875-4250/ or Amy (Gill) Sidhu Director, Management Talent Acquisition, at 604-875-4647/
