Director of Shared Services – (22000ERC)
The Director of Shared Services for the Office of Local and Regional Health (OLRH) will support the OLRH Deputy Director in the implementation of the Special Commission on Local and Regional Public Health’s Blueprint for Public Health Excellence’s (Blueprint) recommendations. The Blueprint defines a detailed roadmap of recommendations to support and inform the development of a major statewide initiative to build a local public health infrastructure.

The Director of Shared Services will lead the Shared Services Unit to establish, solidify, and sustain the local public health cross-jurisdictional sharing infrastructure in the Commonwealth. The Director of Shared Services must integrate health and racial equity principles throughout OLRH’s shared services work at the state and local level to recognize and address the disparate health outcomes for marginalized populations. The Director will have a thorough understanding of the development of a strategic framework of a regional public health system for the Commonwealth.

The Director will oversee the team implementing the Public Health Excellence Grant for Shared Services grant program activities. The goal is to expand the number and scope of arrangements for sharing public health services effectively, efficiently, and equitably.

The mission of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) is to prevent illness, injury, and premature death, to assure access to high quality public health and health care services, and to promote wellness and health equity for all people in the Commonwealth. The Director of Shared Services advances that mission by strengthening the local public health infrastructure to improve equitable public health services statewide.
