Health PEI, Prince Edward Island’s single health authority, is responsible for the delivery of publicly funded health services across the province. With a budget of over $700M and employing approximately 6350 staff, Health PEI oversees a diverse continuum of health services provided through its hospitals, primary care network, public long-term care nursing facilities, and community-based programs and services. Highly committed to ensuring the ongoing delivery of safe and quality health care, Health PEI’s vision is to be PEI’s One Island Health System supporting improved health for all Islanders.
In January 2021, Health PEI realigned its leadership structure to create a stronger organization, by streamlining decision-making, breaking down barriers between programs, improving overall coordination of the health care system and providing responsive services to the increasing needs of Islanders. It is within this exciting context that Health PEI is now seeking an Executive Director, Hospital Services & Patient Flow.
Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer, the Executive Director (ED), Hospital Services & Patient Flow provides progressive executive leadership to a multi-disciplinary team responsible for Health PEI hospital services delivery. The ED provides strategic leadership to ensure the effective and efficient operation of provincial services and programs across six hospitals in the areas of in-patient and ambulatory hospital care, surgical services, diagnostic services, and in-patient pharmacy services. The ED coordinates and leads initiatives related to this portfolio, while promoting collaborative relationships with clinical leadership and community health services to operate a high performing provincial hospital system with excellent patient flow and hospital system resource utilization.
Health PEI welcomes interest in the Executive Director position from individuals who possess a minimum of a Master’s degree (or related clinical degree including Medicine) combined with extensive leadership experience in health or social program delivery. You bring demonstrable experience and knowledge in the areas of program development, coordination, delivery and evaluation processes and nursing resource planning and management.
