Leadership Academy

St. David’s HealthCare is committed to becoming a world class organization. Ultimately, a health care organization is defined by the strength of a single resource—its people. From providing the highest-quality care, to building and sustaining patient loyalty, to bolstering the bottom line, great people are a necessity for clinical and operational excellence.

The key objective of the Leadership Academy is to provide directors, managers, supervisors, and charge nurses (and other designated employees) with the tools and skills necessary to harness the best in their employees. Class participants will learn strategies for facilitating employee engagement, building team trust, decreasing turnover, and how to hardwire excellence into the organization. Courses cover topics on leadership skills and service excellence.

Active participation is mandatory for all directors, managers, supervisors, charge nurses and specifically designated positions. Courses must be completed within one year.


About Us
