Be the liaison between administrative and patient care
Healthcare management is a rapidly growing field in need of qualified professionals with accounting, communications, policy making, computer software, and project management skills. Our cutting-edge program is designed to meet that need, preparing you for a fulfilling career in the administrative and management offices at hospitals, private clinics, community health organizations, and assisted living facilities.
If you would like to make a positive impact in your community by working in healthcare, but don’t want to work directly with patients, this program is the perfect fit! Healthcare managers bridge the gap between administrative and patient care objectives. Besides healthcare topics such as epidemiology, anatomy, and physiology, you’ll learn how to develop and manage budgets, study healthcare law and regulations, ethics, and strategic planning.

Healthcare management is perfect for me because I’m good at business but also passionate about healthcare. You need someone to run the hospital as much as you need the doctors and nurses to render patient care. It’s an emerging field that continues to grow. SUNY Delhi’s bachelor’s program is really in the forefront of this trend. The healthcare industry is constantly evolving, and this degree is very open to build on, which gives me a lot of options for the future.Maggie Kuebler ’21
