FaithSearch Partners is pleased to announce it has been retained by Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas (BHSET) to conduct the search for its new Administrator of Behavioral Health. The health system, based in Beaumont, is a 350+ bed, faith-based, not-for-profit regional referral center with a 100-bed, freestanding behavioral health center.
Adult, adolescent, geriatric, detoxification, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient programming are all provided by this professional mental health and substance abuse treatment center, the highest and most comprehensive level of service available between New Orleans, Louisiana and Houston, Texas.
The Administrator of Behavioral Health will be responsible for overseeing the behavioral health campus and the entire service line for the organization. Reporting to the BHSET Chief Nursing Officer, preferred candidates will have nursing management/leadership backgrounds with substantive administrative experience in an inpatient or outpatient mental health environment.
“Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas is an impressive faith-based organization. Its future Administrator of Behavioral Health must possess exceptional leadership skills, as well as share the system’s mission and have a passion for patient care,” said Ed Fry, President of FaithSearch Partners. “We are delighted to be managing this important search.”
