The Catholic Health Association of the United States (CHA), a national leadership organization dedicated to serving the nation’s Catholic health ministry, has retained Witt/Kieffer to aid in the recruitment of a Vice President, Communications and Marketing that will be located in the St. Louis, Missouri office.
The Catholic health ministry is the largest group of non-profit healthcare providers in the nation comprised of more than 600 hospitals and 1,600 long-term care and other health facilities. To ensure vital sponsorship and a vibrant future for the Catholic health ministry, CHA advocates with Congress, the Administration, federal agencies, and influential policy organizations to ensure that the nation's health systems provide quality and affordable care across the continuum of health care delivery.
Reporting directly to the President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), the Vice President will be responsible for creating and implementing communications strategies that support the Association’s strategic priorities and ensuring that CHA continues to expertly represent the membership with value-add services, through publication, media and outreach. He/she will also be expected to develop a vision and a strategy to transition the Association to a digital publication platform, enhance the CHA brand within and outside the membership, and continue to identify ways to garner visibility (locally and nationally) around the impact the Catholic health ministry has on the community. Keys to the success of this position will be having a strong project management focus and an ability to consistently make good decisions through a combination of analysis, wisdom, experience and judgment.
CHA is seeking candidates with a minimum of ten years progressive management experience and a proven track record in communications/marketing/public relations or a related field. Experience within an association environment and familiarity with healthcare is a plus.
