Job Description

Our client, the Catholic Health Alliance of Canada (CHAC), is an alliance of 14 Canadian Catholic Sponsor organizations representing 124 Catholic hospitals and health institutions across the country. The network includes seven provincial associations; 14 sponsors/owners of health care organizations; 90 hospitals and long-term care organizations; health care professionals; and affiliate organizations and individuals. These institutions encompass 88,000 dedicated staff who serve over 5 million people per year with a combined annual budget in excess of $6 billion.

As the national voice for Catholic health care, the CHAC’s mission is to strengthen and support the ministry of Catholic health care organizations and providers. CHAC brings the 14 Sponsors (owners) together around a single table to develop common messaging and create tools and guidelines for the 124 organizations to advance the Catholic health ministry in Canada. As such, CHAC contributes to making the Canadian health care system stronger, more responsive, and more sustainable.

With a vision to lead, collaborate, innovate and influence to improve health care in Canada and serve where the needs are greatest – especially the poor, vulnerable and marginalized – the CHAC is seeking a visionary leader with a motivating and engaging style to take the organization to the next level. Join CHAC as President and Chief Executive Officer.

Reporting to and working closely with the Governing Council, the President and CEO provides leadership for the implementation of the strategic direction aligned with CHAC’s Mission, Vision, and Values. The President and CEO will build, share, and advance a vision that captures the imagination of stakeholders.

As the ideal candidate, you are an inspiring and empowering leader and influential communicator who understands, or has a strong appreciation for, the value of Catholic health care. With extensive experience in health care, ideally from faith-based, values driven, or Catholic health care environments, you will bring a high degree of executive sophistication, creativity, and enthusiasm for the mandate of this organization. A results-oriented leader with a bias to action, you are known for your ability to leverage resources, set priorities, and negotiate solutions to complex problems. Your versatility and flexibility will serve you well in an increasingly complex and evolving health care environment. Partners with whom you have collaborated have applauded your transparency and integrity, while your teams have always valued your entrepreneurial and resourceful leadership.

Working from a virtual office, this is a unique executive career opportunity for an inspired leader to implement system wide strategy on a national scale.
