Job Description:


Interested in leading a dynamic team that is re-shaping the way health care is delivered?  Together, Haldimand War Memorial Hospital and Edgewater Gardens are having a significant impact on health care delivery in Haldimand County. In addition to our hospital, serving acute and complex care patients, we serve 64 residents at Edgewater Gardens Long-term Care Home, operate a Health Centre, and manage 44 seniors’ condominiums. A new 7,000 sq ft. Emergency Department opened in the fall of 2019, ushering in our Hospital's 100th year of service to our community. We are known for progressive thinking with a history of strong management and community leadership. As a trusted local leader with a well-established network of local and regional partners, the COVID-19 pandemic only heightened our presence, making us more vital to those we serve than ever before. Come join us near the tranquil banks of the Grand River. Centrally located between Hamilton and Niagara we offer the best of both worlds and invite you to become our next….


As the leader of the hospital and long-term care home, you are highly motivated and skilled at developing and maintaining strong partnerships in the hospital and health care environment as well as your local community. You are able to cultivate robust and trusted relationships with management, staff, physicians and other health professionals and work closely with a strong Foundation and dedicated volunteers. You are a visionary with demonstrated strategic focus, excellent team building and problem solving skills, and adeptness at identifying and managing risk early and effectively. You are able to identify – and alter and adapt - priorities as required to meet patient, client and community needs, bringing others on side with you as you do so. Backed by a dedicated Executive Team, you are comfortable initiating and guiding management and Board of Governors planning and decisions with your knowledge and experience in management reporting, analysis and interpretation of financial, operational and clinical data, and other key performance indicators. Through your leadership experience in healthcare dealing with financial challenge and system constraints, you are able to obtain desired outcomes. You will enhance service, identify efficiencies and improve quality with an eye to patient and family needs and sensitivities. You are excited about the potential to innovate and be active in the identification and introduction of new opportunities, as well as cost-saving strategies.

If you are a strong communicator who believes in ongoing, open communications with staff, stakeholders, local leadership and the community; if you are viewed by others as a trusted, strategic, strong leader with a commitment to service; and, if you have a minimum of 5 years progressive leadership experience and at least 10 years in the non-profit sector (with preference given to experience in hospital and long-term care settings), please consider this exciting career opportunity to lead health innovation and growth in a vital Ontario community.
