Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), a premier and innovative children's medical center serving multiple counties in Southern California, has retained WittKieffer to conduct a national search for their Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). This is an exceptional opportunity to make a significant impact supporting the mission of CHOC: To nurture, advance and protect the health and well-being of children.
CHOC is located in Orange County with a scenic, temperate climate year-round with close access to world-class beaches, national/state parks, and mountains, as well as premier arts and entertainment. The two-campus institution, CHOC Children's Hospital in Orange and CHOC Children's at Mission hospital, has 388 total beds and total net operating revenue of over $950 million. CHOC is ranked as one of the nation’s best children’s hospitals by U.S. News & World Report and is among only nine percent of U.S. hospitals awarded Magnet designation. Information security is a key area of focus for CHOC's board and senior executive team. As such, the CISO is a critical hire and will have broad visibility across the health system. The CISO will provide the strategy and vision to develop a robust information security program.
The ideal candidate for the CISO position will be a dynamic executive with a track record of success leading information security. He/she will be viewed as a trusted advisor who is genuine, collaborative and customer centric. The CISO will have the ability to build a premier information security program and lead change in a growing and transforming health system. There is an openness to the leader being located remotely in the western United States, provided the CISO maintains an on-site presence as needed.
All nominations and applications will be handled with the utmost professional courtesy and confidentiality. Applications, expressions of interest, and nominations are welcome. You may perform any of these activities via the WittKieffer Candidate Portal.
