Program Overview

Immaculata University's Health Care Management program helps enhance the management skills of both current health care professionals and individuals who seek to transition into the health care industry. In this Bachelor of Science program, you will learn to work closely with medical staff to plan, direct, and coordinate the delivery of health care.

Health Care Management testimonial


"I have been with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for 10 years and really wanted a change and more of a challenge. I had the experience that other departments wanted and the knowledge of the systems and the day-to-day tasks, but they were also looking for a bachelor’s degree. When I was interviewing, I explained to my hiring managers the types of classes I am taking and the program that I am in. I am the only one in my department with a B.S. in Health Care Management—I truly believe that helped me get this job!"

Ashley Armata, Access Coordinator for the Solid Tumor and Neuro Oncology Programs at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
