Queensway Carleton Hospital (QCH) is West Ottawa’s only full-service community hospital, serving a population of more than 500,000 in one of the fastest growing catchment areas in Canada. With 264 beds, QCH is the secondary referral centre for the Ottawa Valley and offers diverse programs and services such as Emergency, Childbirth, Geriatrics, Mental Health, Rehabilitation, Medical and Surgical Services and Critical Care Services. Its exemplary team of 2,100 health care professionals have dedicated themselves to providing expert care that puts patients and families first and earned the hospital the #1 spot in Ottawa in Newsweek’s World’s Best Hospital Survey in 2019.

Reporting to the Board of Directors and accountable to the President and Chief Executive Officer, the Chief of Staff is responsible for the overall leadership and governance of the medical staff. The Chief of Staff (CoS) acts as Chair of the Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) and is responsible for an appropriate and well functioning medical staff organization. In partnership with the Vice President, Medical Affairs, the CoS provides executive leadership in executing corporate strategies and sponsoring large organizational changes impacting physicians and other stakeholders.

As a suitable candidate, you must be a physician qualified to practice in the Province of Ontario and able to gain active or associate privileges to practice medicine at QCH.

The hospital is seeking an outstanding communicator and relationship builder, highly respected for his/her integrity, transparency, diplomacy and ability to facilitate consensus. Your forward thinking, creative problem solving and skill in negotiation, conflict resolution and collaboration will allow you to credibly serve as the face of medical leadership for QCH, both internally and externally. Given the current period of significant systemic change, QCH requires a strong partnership builder adept at advocating and representing the views of QCH and the community it serves at the local, regional and provincial levels. Your outstanding clinical and administrative leadership skills are combined with demonstrable experience facilitating change in patient and family centred care delivery in an interprofessional environment. Perhaps most importantly, you are an empathetic leader who engenders significant trust and confidence through your authenticity, fairness, willingness to listen and innovate, and for your absolute dedication to excellence in patient care.
