Worcester, MA – WittKieffer has partnered with Family Health Center of Worcester, Inc. (FHCW) on its search for a Chief Medical Officer (CMO).
Reporting to the President/Chief Executive Officer, the CMO will be a key member of the executive leadership team whose primary role is to inspire and lead the clinical staff for a growing Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). The CMO will facilitate a culture of clinical quality and operational excellence with an eye on patient experience to support the health center's strategies, provide clinical expertise and leadership in the design and implementation of new projects and innovations.
For nearly 50 years, FHCW has served as a full-service health center open to all residents of Worcester and surrounding communities. The health center has a satellite center located in Southbridge, Massachusetts, supports 7 School-Based Health Centers for the Worcester Public School System and recently acquired the federally funded Healthcare for the Homeless grant while serving as a key community resource expanding prevention services, primary care and social services to Worcester’s growing homeless population. FHCW provides family care for patients of every age.
FHCW offers family medicine, maternal child health, behavioral health, vision services, dentistry, nursing, a Walk-In Center for urgent and primary care same-day visits, a 340B pharmacy, refugee/immigrant health services, clinics for teen health, ADHD, INS, flu vaccines, an optical shop, HIV counseling and testing, and public health programs for early detection and prevention of disease. The health center also oversees and supports the largest Women Infant Children (WIC) nutrition program in Massachusetts through services at five sites in the Worcester area.
The successful CMO must proactively and persuasively represent FHCW's mission in the community with legislative, regulatory and funding leaders at the local, state and national level. This position requires a CMO who has a passion for providing outstanding care to a diverse community and a desire to improve systems to maximize efficiency, cost containment, and value to the community.
Strong communication and relationship skills are essential to ensuring transparency and collaboration. Understanding the culture, mission of the organization, predisposition of the staff and their values to serve vulnerable populations and becoming a true partner across all functions will be critical to the CMO's success.
