Position Overview

Village Green is searching for a passionate Program Manager to oversee environmental education and outreach programs for the 40,000 teammates (employees) and 125,000 patients throughout our Village. As a Program Manager you have a variety of responsibilities and while each day will bring new challenges, your main areas of focus will be the education of teammates and patients regarding environmental sustainability and the 2015 Village Environmental Goals. The Program Manager will work in conjunction with the Director of Village Green to create meaningful and impactful programs to reduce DaVita's environmental footprint while also educating those around us.

About Village Green

DaVita Village Green was created to ensure the Village was continually improving in how we take care of the world around us. Our main goal is to reduce the environmental impact of our operations - in both the field facilities and in business offices - while educating both our teammates and our patients on why we are making these changes and what they can do to help.

The difference we make

We took a big step forward earlier this year by adopting a formal environmental policy. This puts on paper what our teammates have known for a long time - we are an environmentally-conscious Village. Additionally, this policy communicates with external organizations our dedication to being thoughtful stewards of our environment and Caring for the World. We know that the teammates of the Village share these values and work to integrate them into the daily operations. Village Green works to continually ensure the education of every teammate in compliance with the Village programs and for the sustainability of the natural environment.

Where we're headed

Together we can establish DaVita as an environmental leader among healthcare providers by providing a high impact, measurable, and fun program for teammates across the Village. Village Green will provide continual improvement and modifications to environmental programs through comprehensive tracking and monitoring and offer a comprehensive approach to educational outreach for our teammates, patients, families, and communities at large.
