Posted by Chris Roush

The Dallas Morning News is actively searching for the next great business of health care reporter.

If you’re aggressive and like to break news, you’ll find a thriving health care economy in Dallas-Fort Worth that provides you with endless story possibilities. If you’re gifted with equal amounts of urgency and depth, you’ll thrive in our fast-paced, digital-first newsroom that closely tracks and analyzes story metrics to focus on what resonates most with our readers. And if you’re as comfortable dissecting surprise medical bills and prescription drug costs as you are chronicling the bricks-and-mortar arms race in hospital construction, you’ll covet the built-in audience in D-FW for everything you’ll write.

Health care is a $50 billion a year industry here, with major hospital systems and a nationally recognized teaching hospital supporting and sustaining a sophisticated network of  insurers, nonprofits, medical practices and health care entrepreneurs. As a state, Texas pours millions of dollars annually into cancer research and in attracting star medical researchers to the state.

Our ideal candidate has experience writing about national, state and local health care issues and the money that shapes them, likes to dig through public records and data to find unreported stories and trends, and can consistently produce enterprise that expands the reach of our digital and print audiences.

Please submit a resume, cover letter describing how you’d approach this important beat, three (3) examples of your best work and a link to your existing author page or online portfolio.
