Kennedy CHC is an innovative community health center dedicated to helping people live healthier lives, which serves 28,000 residents of Worcester, Framingham and surrounding communities. Toni McGuire, who has served as CEO for the past 11 years, is retiring, leaving the Center well positioned for the future. The Board of Directors is looking for an accomplished, forward-thinking, politically astute leader with exceptional relationship- building and management skills and a deep knowledge of health care, finance, operations and quality improvement to lead a well-established agency into the next decade and beyond.

The ideal candidate will be a seasoned, motivational leader who has a profound commitment to the Center’s mission, experience working as a leader in health care and in multicultural environments, and a sophisticated understanding of the strategic drivers, trends and outside forces – both threats and opportunities – that impact the health care world and the provision of health services. In order to ensure Kennedy CHC’s long-term sustainability and high quality of service, the new CEO will be a skilled navigator who can balance managing internally to advance operational systems, ensure ACO success, and improve workforce recruitment and retention, while also working externally as a strong advocate for our community health center on the local, state and national levels.

This is a time of extraordinary and unpredictable change in health care which will have significant impact on community health centers and their patients. As a result, this is a high-visibility position. The CEO will be looked to by staff at all levels to develop Kennedy CHC’s vision and steer the agency into the future, and by outside stakeholders to play a role in shaping policy for community health centers and health care more generally.
