Fraser Health Authority
President & Chief Executive Officer
Fraser Health provides a wide range of integrated health care services to more than 1.8 million people in the Fraser region. It is one of Canada's largest and fastest growing health authorities with over 25,000 employees, 2,600 physicians and 8,000 volunteers focused on patient outcomes and the communities it serves.
Fraser Health’s services range from acute care hospitals to community-based residential, home health, mental health and public health services. Fraser Health is proud of many of their innovations, commitment, professionalism and resilience of its physicians, employees and volunteers. More than any building, technology or program, it's the people who make Fraser Health distinct and whom will welcome you as a leader.
Through the pending retirement of the incumbent CEO, the Board of Fraser Health Authority is seeking a leader to embrace the vision of a health care delivery model where residents receive support to stay healthy and receive care in their homes and communities, freeing up hospital services for patients who most need it.
This is a critically important role with one of Canada’s largest and most complex healthcare environments. The CEO will spearhead and implement a multi-faceted agenda, as well as inspire clinical leaders, staff and administration in a large geographically dispersed region with a multitude of stakeholders and partner groups. The CEO will bring a passion for public healthcare and a sophistication to deal with a variety of interested parties including First Nations. Responsive to the needs of citizens, the Board and the Ministry of Health, the CEO must bring a future looking commitment to community care, as well as acute care needs, all with a service orientation towards people taking care of people.
There are significant capital expansion programs being undertaken, large operating budgets which need to be managed in today’s landscape of limited resources, greater involvement by the patient community and of course, an unwavering commitment to the quality of care delivered across the region. The CEO required for this task will be a proven leader, a visionary, a courageous challenger of the status quo. An individual with the track record of making the hard decisions that are in the best interests of the patients and the health authority tied to the execution of priorities around a vision of innovation and growth for Fraser Health.
There are many opportunities for Fraser Health to utilize data and evidence to drive change within a changing provincial healthcare context where expectations are high, and the CEO needs to meet and exceed those opportunities utilizing a strong senior leadership team and a committed Board of Directors.
