PCH enjoys stable finances and has recently embarked on a path of rapid expansion and growth, completing several significant expansion projects in the last decade. It is a recurrent top performer, achieving the highest safety grade ratings from the Leapfrog Group, ICU staffing and managing harm. PCH's future is one of exciting evolution and expansion, with goals to grow physician integration and to build a system of care to meet the children where they are. Key components of Phoenix Children's includes PCH, Phoenix Children's Care Network (the system's clinically integrated network), Phoenix Children's Medical Group, Phoenix Children's Research Institute and Phoenix Children's Foundation.

The SVP/CNO must balance high-level clinical effectiveness with strategy and strong business acumen. They will collaborate effectively with key partners, and help develop innovative and creative solutions that cross functional boundaries.
Previous experience as a Chief Nurse Executive is preferred; however, candidates with senior level nursing leadership experience at a highly recognized organization will be given serious consideration. Leadership experience within a pediatric setting is a plus, but not required. Candidate requirements include a minimum of ten years in clinical/nursing management, ideally within a complex integrated delivery system. A Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree in nursing, business administration, healthcare administration or related field is required. PCH is a union-free environment.
