The Geraldton District Hospital is seeking a Chief Financial Officer (CFO) to assume responsibility for a high-profile health care project ($10 million) for the construction of a new Emergency Department, and to build financial processes and accountability structure from the ground up. Accountable to the Board of Directors, and acting as second-in-command to the CEO, the new CFO will assist with the strategic direction of the Hospital and the leadership of its staff. As CFO, you will establish strong working relationships with employees, partner organizations, the North West Local Health Integration Network, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, the Municipality of Greenstone and the surrounding region.
As the strategic financial leader, you will bring a strong capital background and a thorough understanding of contract management and administration, cost controls, and project schedules and management, along with a broad suite of strategic financial expertise. You have had proven success in managing project timelines, are comfortable with media and public relations, and have experience building spreadsheets, reporting to boards, sitting on committees and providing regular reports to the Ministry or a comparable government entity. You identify yourself as a people person, want to be an active participant in the life of the community, and can foster dynamic relationships and develop partnerships between the Hospital and all of its key stakeholders. You understand the Patients First approach of the Ontario health care system and are a catalyst for change, able to proactively identify key issues, assess strategic options and implement innovative solutions.
A highly effective, engaging and approachable leader, you will delegate responsibly, resolve conflict diplomatically, nurture talent productively and motivate your team to achieve peak performance. A strategic thinker and an active listener, you will encourage and demonstrate flexibility and commitment to transparency and accountability. You will consult internally and externally while facilitating and coordinating long-range financial planning processes through the senior management team and Board of Directors. In addition to ensuring the new Emergency Department project is on-time and on-budget, you will be a change leader with the autonomy to implement new financial processes and policies.
