Rideau Community Health Services (RCHS) is a non-profit, fully accredited organization that offers primary health care and social services throughout Lanark, Leeds & Grenville.



Chief Executive Officer

Lead an organization committed to building integration across the health and social services system in South East Ontario through engaging individuals and communities to improve health and wellbeing

Rideau Community Health Services (RCHS) is a well-established health and social services provider for the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark communities in South East Ontario. RCHS is a non-profit, fully accredited organization that offers primary health care with an emphasis on illness prevention, health promotion, health education and community development. In addition to offering a very diverse range of programs and services, RCHS works as a catalyst for change in collaboration with a wide range of partners to develop healthy communities.

RCHS comprises the Smiths Falls Community Health Centre, the Merrickville and District Community Health Centre and Rideau Valley Diabetes Services. RCHS seeks to organize services in a way that helps people who face barriers to get the help they need when they need it and removes systemic barriers that impact their health outcomes. RCHS has an annual budget of more than $8M and a complement of 80 dedicated staff as well as many volunteers and active participants from the community.

Following the decision of the current Executive Director to retire after an accomplished tenure of eighteen years, the Board is looking for an outstanding leader with a passion for inclusive and equitable health care and an ability to inspire it in others, who will work collaboratively with funders and community partners to promote health equity and improved access across the communities served. Reporting directly to an engaged Board of Directors and working closely with committed management and dedicated staff, the CEO will be a visionary organizational leader and strategic community partner committed to service excellence, social justice and improved population health for all communities served.

Ideally, the CEO will have seven to ten years of proven experience in a leadership capacity in the community-based non-profit sector or a combination of experience in the non-profit and for-profit sectors, preferably in health care. The CEO will hold a master’s level degree in business, public or health administration, health sciences, psychology, political sciences or another relevant field. As a visionary and inspirational leader with excellent interpersonal skills and proficient team building skills, the CEO will promote a culture of collaboration, excellence and continuous improvement and demonstrate an understanding of working in a culturally diverse and changing community environment.
This is an outstanding opportunity for a leader who can deliver on RCHS’s bold vision of the future and who can work with the Board to execute an exciting strategic vision encompassing a major capital project which will provide a new Community Health Centre and support the development of a community hub to create a fully integrated health and care network.

The closing date for receipt of applications is September 21, 2018.
