WittKieffer has been retained by CentraCare, located in St. Cloud, Minnesota, to conduct the search for their next Vice President, Specialty Care Division. This is a unique opportunity to join the leadership team of a growing, high-quality integrated system with strong, stable leadership.
CentraCare is a $1.85 billion network with nearly 13,000 employees serving hospitals and clinics across central and southwestern Minnesota. A physician-led organization with a large employed physician population, CentraCare has enjoyed a long history of clinical excellence, a strong financial position, and significant market share in the communities it serves. The system is well positioned to advance the organizational objectives and strategies for success outlined in the Quadruple Aim of Quality and Experience, Value, Community Health and People.
The VP, Specialty Care Division will serve as a dyad to the Physician VP, Specialty Care Division and will assume operational responsibility for key specialty care sections, including cardiac (cardiology, cardiac surgery, electrophysiology), medical specialties (oncology, GI/endoscopy, rheumatology, nephrology), neurosciences (neurology, neurosurgery, physician medicine & rehab, pain management, sleep) and vascular medicine. Imaging and pharmacy also report into this division. In total, the Division accounts for approximately $800 million in annual net revenue and much of the profitability for the system.
Key to success in this role is a deep familiarity with and comfort leading within matrixed organizations with dyad leadership structures. Because this position oversees specialty care services that cross inpatient and outpatient settings, as well as regional outreach, experience in both hospital and clinic environments is key, along with an appreciation for rural healthcare. The position requires a collaborative leader who is passionate about advancing goals related to access, health equity, quality, service, patient satisfaction and employee and provider engagement. This individual will be expert at guiding and managing a high-performing leadership team, creating a culture of performance and accountability and establishing high-trust partnerships with key stakeholders to achieve results.
