Pagination or Media Count:
By title, the U.S. Army healthcare administrator is caught in an apparent multiplicity of diverse role requirements. These wide- ranging duties are the product of his or her being, at the same time, a member of the military and a healthcare administrator. As an Army officer the administrator is held responsible for the combat readiness of self, subordinates, and organization. As an administrator this individual is held responsible for the facilitys adherence to the many military regulations and civilian laws and accreditation rules governing the peacetime administration of military health care. Surprisingly, despite this diversity, this study of Role Perceptions of Army Healthcare Administrators demonstrates a consistent and clear- cut description of duties, strengths, and areas needing improvement. The study also makes recommendations for leader development of Army healthcare executives.
