WittKieffer is pleased to collaborate with Sinai Hospital of Baltimore on their search for an innovative and strategic Vice President, Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer (CNO).
Sinai Hospital of Baltimore, a member of Lifebridge Health, has a deep history in Baltimore, Maryland, growing over the past 150 years from a 10-room hospital to major academic and research center, with the atmosphere of a community hospital. Today, along with its strong reputation, Sinai possesses a strong balance sheet, net revenues of more than $919 million, and 504 licensed beds.
Reporting to the newly appointed President and COO, the CNO will be a critical member of the leadership team. The need for tight patient care coordination is critical, and the new CNO will implement approaches to care coordination efforts and workforce strategies that support Sinai's quality and patient engagement goals. The new CNO must also collaborate with the medical staff to develop and drive new workforce and clinical care delivery strategies that focus on driving quality and patient experience at Sinai. This executive will be committed to fostering an accountable, transparent environment that is supportive of staff, and fosters their professional development. The new CNO will be a strong communicator, focusing on rebuilding nursing morale throughout the organization, providing leadership as the nursing team goes through a cultural and operational transformation.
Sinai Hospital will embrace a highly visible, warm, inspirational nursing leader that can advocate and be the voice of nursing. The new CNO will be an engaging leader with an effective communication style who will not only advocate for the nursing staff, but also think broadly and collaborate with other departments (ancillary and support services) across the organization. The CNO will proactively identify progressive, creative, viable approaches to enhance overall quality and patient satisfaction, as well as the culture of nursing at Sinai. They will develop a tight-knit, high performance nursing team that is focused on service excellence and continuous improvement.
Candidates should have a minimum of five years of progressive senior-level nursing experience with a successful record of operational and strategic nursing experience in developing high-performing teams. Extensive, successful, and innovative experience partnering with physicians and other health professionals within a teaching hospital environment, and a record of building and maintaining trusting, collaborative relationships is required. Those who have worked in system structures, in urban and/or competitive environments will be preferred.
