St. Cloud, MN

Job Description

CentraCare Health located in St. Cloud, Minnesota is seeking a sophisticated, dynamic and strategically-oriented leader to serve as its next Senior Vice President, Finance/Chief Financial Officer (CFO). This is an exciting opportunity for a seasoned healthcare leader to join a strong and growing independent health system.

CentraCare Health is a $1.7 billion network with nearly 13,000 employees serving hospitals and clinics across central and southwestern Minnesota. The system includes 8 hospitals, 30 clinics, 8 long-term care facilities, 11 senior housing facilities, 4 outpatient surgery centers, home care, hospice, and more. As a physician-led organization with a large employed physician population, CentraCare Health has enjoyed a long history of clinical excellence, a strong financial position, and significant market share in the communities it serves.

Reporting directly to the CEO, the CFO will work closely with executive leadership across the system to support strategic growth and ensure financial objectives are achieved. To be successful, the CFO will need to lead collaboratively in the pursuit of new sources of revenue, seeking opportunities to improve efficiency and reduce expenses, as well as continuing to integrate and centralize operations while ensuring alignment of community and system-wide initiatives.

Although candidates from outside the healthcare industry will be considered, the ideal candidate will be an experienced, results-oriented financial leader with a track record of success in a complex, integrated health system. This will include an understanding of risk-based contracts, complex debt instruments, the provider perspective, the payor function, dynamics of rural healthcare, and other important aspects of current and future healthcare delivery. The ideal candidate will be a gifted relationship builder with the vision, energy, and experience to develop talent and effectively lead change.
