MercyOne, a connected system of over 40 managed and owned health care facilities based in Des Moines, IA, has partnered with Witt/Kieffer in their search for a dynamic, distinguished executive to serve as their next Vice President, Clinical Quality and Safety (VP).
In this newly evolved system role, the VP will accept a challenging but rewarding charge to elevate awareness, engagement and discipline in the strategy and execution of clinical quality, safety and patient experience across MercyOne. With strong system support and commitment, this Vice President is charged with engaging, motivating and empowering colleagues and clinicians to enhance quality and safety, advance outcomes and drive performance excellence. She/he will partner with System and field leadership to develop, deploy and communicate a strategic, sustainable approach to clinical quality and safety. This executive will assess and develop the infrastructure, processes and supporting systems to ensure a consistent, system approach to the measurement and achievement of quality objectives, engaging the collective organization in a renewed passion and focus on achieving outcomes and quality measures.
The VP will report directly to Mike Wegner, Executive Vice President of Operations and Chief Financial Officer. The VP will have a matrixed reporting relationship to all site-based quality leaders and will be expected to be comfortable operating in a highly matrixed-and geographically dispersed integrated healthcare system.
The successful candidate will be a transformational leader and expert facilitator who can motivate and engage diverse stakeholders to action. A demonstrated track record of successful influence and relational skills will be critical. All candidates with strong quality and safety experience will be considered with a strong preference for a clinician.
