Providence Health Care
President & Chief Executive Officer
Providence Health Care is a faith-based non-profit organization, providing services in partnership with Vancouver Coastal Health and the Provincial Health Services Authority. As an academic and research focused organization, Providence is a leader in health care and provides patient and family centred care to patients throughout British Columbia. Driven by compassion and social justice, Providence is at the forefront of exceptional care and innovation.
A truly unique opportunity in Canadian health care leadership has emerged in Vancouver. It is a once-in-a-lifetime role for an individual who will embrace what is termed a bold vision to develop the new St. Paul’s hospital and integrated health campus which in itself will transform the future of health care for British Columbians by combining critical, emergency and acute hospital-based care with community and primary care.
The CEO of Providence Health Care has a broad mandate, not just for the development of a treasured provincial medical resource in St. Paul’s hospital but for preserving the excellence in research and helping to reimagine the future of health care through 6,000 staff, over 1,000 medical staff/physicians, hundreds of researchers and 1,600 volunteers all spread over 16-sites. Reporting to a Board of Directors and with a leadership role as CEO with substantial size, scope and scale, this is a position that requires an adept, innovative and inclusive leader. A proven transformational trailblazer who can formulate, articulate and translate the vision into action while also providing key guidance on daily operational issues within a highly complex and visible organization.
Providence requires a CEO with heart, compassion and the intellect to collaborate within a multi-stakeholder, Catholic health care institution, along with a true appreciation for research and entrepreneurial creativity, plus proven authenticity around community and government engagement.
This is not a role for just anyone. The CEO Selection Committee has set the bar high and expects interested candidates bring a career path that may well be untraditional in terms of health care but will also align to the core integration delivery model for which Providence Health Care is known around the world.
