The foundation of the Ontario Hospital Association’s (OHA) Strategic Plan: 2018-2021 is the need to be a strong and healthy association to serve hospitals so that they can change and evolve as organizations within Ontario’s health system.

You see the big picture and are an internal champion for improving value and member satisfaction. You are a team player and thrive in a fast-paced environment and have a strong sense of accountability for your work and the service that you and your team provide to OHA Members, your colleagues and the organization.

The Position:
Reporting to the Director, Strategy and Member Relations, your responsibilities include:
  • Providing support directly to the Director, Strategy and Member Engagement on activities related to the development of the OHA next strategic planning. This includes managing key aspects of Member, staff and stakeholder outreach; conducting internal assessment of OHA operations; performing environmental scans into leading practices in strategic planning across different sectors; carrying out deep analysis into future needs of the membership; writing that is clear and purposeful; applying principles of design thinking; and, making presentations to internal and external audiences.
  • Supporting the extension of the OHA’s Strategic Plan: 2018-2021 into 2021 by overseeing all reporting and performance improvement activities, such as the implementation and active monitoring of the association’s modified balanced scorecard approach.
Member Relations
  • Leading efforts to enhance the OHA’s entire member relations program by conducting a comprehensive internal review of initiatives and identifying new and innovative opportunities.
  • Leading all aspects of the OHA’s annual Member Satisfaction Survey. This includes administering the survey, analysing results and designing reports that support performance improvement across the organization.
  • Working closely with all parts of the OHA, and especially with the OHA’s Information Technology department, to regularly manage Member data and information in the organization’s Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system.
  • Managing the execution of the President and CEO’s hospital Members’ meetings, tours and visits. This includes working closely with staff in the OHA’s Public Affairs department in preparing the President and CEO for possible media and outreach with key stakeholders in communities to advance hospital objectives; debriefing with the President and CEO on outcomes from engagement activities; and, recording information in the OHA’s CRM system for member engagement tracking and reporting purposes.
  • Facilitating and tracking OHA Senior Management’s annual hospital CEO outreach initiative
  • Providing expert advice relating to strengthening OHA’s member intelligence. This includes liaising with hospital Members on expectations and engagement activities; coordinating with appropriate staff on significant events and timelines related to Members’ information, research, and reports; and, keeping up-to-date on transitions within the membership base.
The Candidate:

The ideal candidate has demonstrated knowledge and experience in corporate strategy, project management, and especially, member relations. Strong interpersonal and communication skills are essential. In addition, you are a strategic and critical thinker with strong planning, leadership and analytic skills. You can work well under pressure while managing multiple priorities, and remaining responsive in a dynamic and fluid environment.
