Background Discussion

An anonymous donor approached Manatee County to propose funding the Health Care Services Manager position for two (2) years for a total of $200,000 (all costs included).  The foundation asked Manatee Community Foundation to act as the fiduciary agent for this transaction. 

The Manatee County Board of County Commissioners and County Administration have discussed the need to have a medical professional on staff to assist in the development of programs and processes related to community health care.  This individual will perform professional and administrative duties required in the coordination of health care programs including, but not limited to, monitoring changes and best practices in the health care delivery system; developing, implementing, and analyzing system policies, programs, and access to care services; and performing ongoing gap analysis as it relates to the health care goals of the Board of County Commissioners related to underinsured citizens.  This position will report to the Director of the Neighborhood Services Department. 

Budget Amendment B-16-043 designates the funds to Community Services.
