King County is seeking to hire a Release Planning Manager within Public Health - Seattle & King County, Jail Health Services (JHS) Division. This is a (2) two-year, full-time temporary or special duty position with the potential to transition into a permanent role.

As part of the clinical leadership team, you would play a pivotal role in ensuring individuals have the essential resources and support that they need as they release from jail as well as forging impactful partnerships with community stakeholders and fostering a vibrant and inclusive work environment.

You would put your clinical supervision skills to work by leading a sixteen-member clinical team consisting of senior social workers, social workers, and social service specialists both licensed and unlicensed. This specialized team provides person-centered and trauma-informed release planning services that focus on individuals in need of coordinated medical care, behavioral health treatment, benefits, and other social services.

You would also oversee the day-to-day operations of the program, managing all personnel responsibilities, and collaborating with other Social Service programs to develop cohesive policies and procedures, standard work, and standards of care that align with credentialing requirements and JHS’s mission and values.

We are striving to build our workforce with people from diverse backgrounds, including people with lived experience of substance use, incarceration, houselessness, people of color, and members of the LGBTQIA+ communities. This emphasis on diversity and inclusivity reflects a commitment to providing equitable and just health and human services to all individuals, regardless of their background.

This position demands a commitment to equity, social justice, and a deep understanding of the complex challenges faced by individuals in the criminal legal system. If you meet these qualifications and are passionate about providing equitable healthcare services to diverse populations, this role offers an opportunity to make a meaningful impact.

JHS provides needed health and social services to the incarcerated population located in the King County jails – King County Correctional Facility (KCCF) in Seattle, WA and Maleng Regional Justice Center (MRJC) in Kent, WA.  The primary services we provide include medical, dental, mental health, social and release planning services, treatment of substance use disorders, and pharmaceutical services.  We care about the patients we serve and their health outcomes. Our Division includes over 230 employees and a bi-annual budget of over $80 million.

The purpose of JHS is to assure that high-quality health and human services are available to the incarcerated population in the King County adult correctional facilities: the King County Correctional Facility (KCCF) in Seattle and the Maleng Regional Justice Center (MRJC) in Kent. The JHS vision is Opening doors to healthier, happier lives, and the mission is To assess and stabilize serious health problems for the detained population of the King County Correctional Facility and the Maleng Regional Justice Center with a focus on transition from jail.

Staffed 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year, JHS provides a broad range of health care to all individuals booked into the jails. For patients with serious mental health or medical conditions, special housing units (psychiatric and infirmary) along with a higher level of services and medical monitoring are provided. Since the patient population varies both in numbers as well as in acuity of health conditions, staffing is adapted and flexed to meet the constantly changing needs of the population.

JHS staff manage the complex health needs of underserved populations many of whom come to the facility without access to care in the community and with decompensated acute and chronic health conditions.

Term-Limited Temporary positions are "at-will" positions but are eligible for benefits. This TLT is currently anticipated to last two (2) years. However, funding sources for this work remain uncertain and dependent upon decisions actively being made at both the federal and local levels. As a result, the end date of this position may be adjusted based on those decisions.  The County and the Department continue to work to secure long term funding sources.
