Project Manager, PA PQC and Pittsburgh Safer Childbirth City (View Job Description)

The Jewish Healthcare Foundation is hiring a Project Manager for two programs: the Pennsylvania Perinatal Quality Collaborative (PA PQC) and Pittsburgh: A Safer Childbirth City. The Project Manager will maintain project plans, coordinate the project teams and activities, work with the projects’ grantees and contractors, develop reports for funders, interface with JHF’s communications teams, and support the creation of project materials.

The PA PQC was launched in April 2019 as an action arm of the Pennsylvania Maternal Mortality Review Committee. Perinatal Quality Collaboratives are networks of teams working to improve the quality of care for mothers and newborns across prenatal, labor/birth, newborn, and postpartum services. They identify processes that need to be improved and quickly adopt best practices to achieve collective aims. The PA PQC includes 60 birth hospitals and NICUs, representing 86% of live births in Pennsylvania, and 14 commercial and Medicaid health plans across the Commonwealth. The multi-disciplinary health care teams from the PA PQC hospitals/NICUs participate in learning sessions, launch quality improvement projects, access quality improvement coaching and resources, and report aggregate data to drive improvement towards the PA PQC’s goals.

Pittsburgh: A Safer Childbirth City aims to reduce racial/ethnic disparities in maternal mortality and morbidity rates. Pittsburgh: A Safer Childbirth City is part of Merck for Mother’s network of 20 Safer Childbirth Cities across the U.S. Safer Childbirth Cities grantees work to engage communities in maternal health improvements and address the social determinants of health, and work with doulas and perinatal support workers to bolster the care support system around women and families during pregnancy, childbirth, and the months after.
