Job Description:

Vice President, Chief Nursing Officer, Salmon Creek Medical CenterUS-WA-VancouverJob ID: 22-25508Type: Regular Full-TimeSalmon Creek Medical Ctr campusOverviewThe vice president, chief nursing officer of Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center, represents those frontline employees who embody Legacy Health's transformative belief in medicine: Its nurses. The chief nursing officer will help lead the goal of maintaining the qualities, standards and ambitions of the hospital system with the most five-star ratings in the Pacific Northwest. (Legacy Salmon Creek, for example, has been awarded a five-star rating by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, an "A" rating from The Leapfrog Group and a Top 50 hospital rating from Healthgrades.) The chief nursing officer prizes, in word and deed, Legacy's belief in always being patient-focused and people-centered. This means the chief nursing officer will oversee Legacy Salmon Creek's entire impact on patient needs through its nursing patient care programs, policies and procedures. This leader will have a key, influential voice in the hospital's strategic planning and will report directly to Legacy Salmon Creek's president. The chief nursing officer has frontline experience as a nurse but will also possess a background in health care management. Like every Legacy leader, this individual will know how to gauge and respect the staff's emotional temperature. Fittingly - but not least - the chief nursing officer is committed to the ideals of diversity, equity and inclusion and will always do the right thing. The qualifications of Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center's vice president, chief nursing officer, reflect a dual professional talent. On the one hand, this leader will have spent many years in the clinical trenches as a nurse, with experiential knowledge of the intricacies of what life is like on the frontlines of health care. On the other, the chief nursing officer will have spent time working behind the curtains, so to speak, as a leader, manager and administrator. To that end, the chief nursing officer will have a graduate degree in nursing and will have held an administrative position in health care, including experience as a clinical nursing leader. This candidate will be expected to act consistently with Legacy's Values in Action and therefore must exemplify the qualities of trust, collegiality and safety among peers, colleagues and subordinates. We strive to be a diverse, culturally responsive organization, and encourage individuals with diverse backgrounds and those who promote diversity and inclusion to apply.
