When the agreement between HCA and Mission Health was finalized, there was a letter agreement between Dogwood Health Trust (DHT) and NC Attorney General Josh Stein. In it DHT indicated that their Board would be conducting a national search for its initial chief executive with the assistance of a national executive search firm.
DHT hired the firm Witt/Kieffer to help with the search. Representatives of Witt/Kiefer came to Asheville, met with DHT and other organizations including members of the SEARCH Leadership team, and have compiled a Leadership Profile for the position.
As they say in the profile:
“This is a career-defining opportunity for a seasoned, collaborative and humble executive to build and lead the biggest healthcare conversion foundation on a per capita basis in the country, and to play an instrumental role in making meaningful, transformational long-term change in the health and well-being of the residents of Western North Carolina.”
The profile goes on to describe the work that DHT will do, the attributes that the ideal CEO candidate will have, the 18-county area that DHT will serve. Extensive information is provided on the responsibilities, goals and objectives of the CEO, and the measures of success for the first 12-18 months in the job, as well as the knowledge and work experience, the education and certification requirements, and desired characteristics in the candidate.
The timeline for potential interview dates for this position have been outlined as follows:
- Paper presentation of qualified candidates to Search Committee: Week of May 20, 2019
- Round One interview dates: Week of June 3, 2019
- Round Two interview dates: Week of June 17, 2019
Selected candidates should plan to hold the above dates in the event they are invited by the committee to participate in the interview process.
