Witt/Kieffer is excited to partner with Mount Nittany Health (MNH), located in State College, PA in their identification of a System Chief Nursing Officer/EVP, Patient Care Services (SCNO/EVPPCS) to help lead this vibrant community health system. Planned retirements have created a unique opportunity within MNH to advance the integration and alignment of patient care services into the new position (SCNO/EVPPCS). This new structure will result in a leadership team that manages the continuum of services provided and aligns inpatient and outpatient operations to maximize performance under value based reimbursement.
MNH is a $500 million regional health system that continues to emerge and grow in both scope and prominence within Central Pennsylvania. MNH includes the parent organization Mount Nittany Health System, along with Mount Nittany Medical Center, a 260-bed acute care hospital, 130-employed providers, operating in 17 locations, a charitable foundation, and a children's advocacy center. With an emphasis on high quality patient care and a strong financial position, MNH serves a six-county region in Central Pennsylvania.
The new executive will join a nimble organization and a collaborative leadership team, focused on creating a structure and environment that continues the record breaking performance of the system, while preparing it for any potential future challenges.
This executive has the opportunity to advance a successful, stable system, with dedicated and enthusiastic staff and to identify innovations and initiatives that position MNH to be successful in the increasingly volatile world of health care regulations and finances. This is an exciting opportunity to join an organization that truly lives its mission and is committed to an open and highly collaborative working environment.
The healthcare executive who is selected as the next SCNO/EVPPCS of MNH has the potential to achieve the a variety of professional and personal goals, such as serving as a representative of the clinical mission within senior leadership and in forums where strategic and business development initiatives are decided, guiding major elements of the organization away from representational thinking into a broader, more integrated enterprise-wide approach, moving patient care services from a hospital centric perspective to more of a continuum approach and living and working in a region centered on one of the nation’s most respected universities and unmatched for quality of life.
Candidates best suited for the position will be executives who have previously held the CNO role and are looking for expanded accountabilities that bridge multiple operational areas. Experience leading in an integrated, continuum of care environment is highly desirable. Additional information is available at www.wittkieffer.com.
