We're a Little Different

The Executive Director of Product Development is responsible for leading Mercy's product development and implementation teams, refining the process and building and leading the team responsible for developing and implementing integrated, holistic, and seamless solutions to meet expressed consumer needs. This role requires a high degree of leading through change, willingness to consistently challenge conventional healthcare thinking, and collaboration across defined organizational silos to help accelerate the disruption of our industry through innovative, longitudinal health solutions. This role will continue to evolve as we transition out of a Mercy-centric mind-set, to a consumer-centric mindset and operating model. As such, comfort with ambiguity and a willingness to help lead others- on their team and via peer influence- through the midst of an industry, a ministry and a department in transition is core foundational expectation of the role.

We Offer Great Benefits:

Day-one comprehensive health, vision and dental coverage, PTO, tuition reimbursement and employer-matched retirement funds are just a few of the great benefits offered to eligible co-workers, including those working 48 hours or more per pay period!

We're bringing to life a healing ministry through compassionate care.

At Mercy, our supportive community will be behind you every step of your day, especially the tough ones. You will have opportunities to pioneer new models of care and transform the health care experience through advanced technology and innovative procedures. We're expanding to help our communities grow.
