WittKieffer is proud to announce a CFO search we have launched in partnership with the Greater Lawrence Family Health Center, a leading federally qualified community health center, recognized for its innovative approach to financing and delivering care, particularly to vulnerable populations. GLFHC is known for delivering high quality health services to Merrimack Valley residents and as the home of the nation's first accredited community health center residency program. This new CFO will work closely with the CEO, Board and staff to navigate the changes facing FQHCs and to upgrade its financial structures/systems to support the Center's significant growth, especially as it relates to new ACO models and changing reimbursements.
The CFO will be a business partner who can assess the financial implications of new and existing opportunities, while digging into the details and collaborating to achieve organizational goals. Strong communication and relationship skills are essential to cultivating transparency and collaboration.
The ideal candidate will be a successful, experienced finance leader of a community health center, a related health care provider, community hospital or physician practice of similar size and complexity. Demonstrated senior-level health care finance leadership and management experience in a multi-faceted organization with complex business, technical and regulatory demands is necessary.
Demonstrated experience in a challenging healthcare environment, with strong operating and financial leadership responsibility is required. Proven understanding of the healthcare industry, specifically of Medicaid, and an appreciation of emerging trends and opportunities; experience in healthcare or a closely related field is preferred. Values-driven candidates with experience within human services and related fields will also be considered.
