Tyler & Company has been retained by St. Claire HealthCare in Kentucky to recruit a CEO. St. Claire HealthCare (SCH) is an integrated healthcare system with the largest rural hospital in Northeastern Kentucky with 159 beds, seven family medicine locations, a $28 million multi-specialty medical pavilion, an outpatient center, homecare services, three retail services including family medical supply, and two pharmacies.  It's the largest employer in the region, with over 1,200 staff members, including more than 100 medical providers representing 32 medical specialties. Sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame, St. Claire HealthCare is committed to providing quality healthcare in a caring environment.

The Chief Executive Officer reports to the St. Claire HealthCare Board of Directors Chair. This position is open due to the upcoming retirement of the current CEO after a successful 24-year tenure. 

The role of the CEO is to carry out the mission of St. Claire HealthCare at all levels and has been delegated from the Board of Directors the responsibility to operate St. Claire HealthCare in all its activities, divisions and relationships. The Chief Executive Officer will be very visible among all of the SCH entities, as well as the community. 

This is an outstanding opportunity to direct and lead a mission-driven, faith-based independent healthcare system. 

The ideal candidate will possess rural CEO experience in a similar or slightly smaller healthcare system or COO experience in a larger facility (200 beds or more).  Experience with a Catholic healthcare system is a plus but not a requirement. 

The incoming CEO must be willing to develop an understanding and a commitment to St. Claire's Catholic identity, mission and vision, as well as the unique mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame. 

Morehead is located in Rowan County, Kentucky, situated on I-64 in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and nestled in the heart of the Daniel Boone National Forest. Morehead serves as the economic and cultural hub of the region. Servicing over 100,000 people in health care, education, and recreation, the town is home to both a top-ranked university and a comprehensive community and technical college. The region is ideal for those who love the outdoors.
