NCH is searching for an experienced, dynamic talented leader as its next President and CEO. This is an exceptional, once in a career opportunity to oversee the growth and development of a health system that will provide value in delivering access to affordable, high quality, population based health care in a geographically expansive region. The President and CEO will work with the entity presidents and medical leadership to ensure that NCH and its communities will work through change processes in the way healthcare services are delivered in a rural region where access to quality care is vital.
