Tyler & Company is pleased to announce we have been retained for an exciting search for Chief Nursing Officer at Penn State Health Hampden. 

Penn State Health is poised for continued growth and this is an exciting opportunity to be a key contributor in the development and leadership of a new, state-of-the-art community hospital while assisting with the integration and systemization efforts within a newly formed regional health care enterprise.

The Organization

Work began in March 2019 at the site of a new Penn State Health acute-care hospital. The $300 million facility will grow to support 1,000 employees and will feature 108 private inpatient beds, an ED, physician offices, specialty inpatient services, imaging/lab services, complete medical and surgical capabilities, and an attached outpatient medical office building. The hospital will feature an open medical staff, with collaborative programs between PSH faculty physicians and private community providers. Hampden Medical Center will sit on 44 acres in the Wentworth Corporate Center, located 10 minutes from Harrisburg and 30 minutes from Hershey, Pennsylvania.

Penn State Health is a fast-growing, $2.3 billion health care enterprise, serving an increasingly diverse population of patients across the region – now with seven hospitals, including an academic medical center/college of medicine and 57 multispecialty, outpatient clinics across nine counties in central Pennsylvania. PSH and Highmark Health (one of the largest health insurance companies in PA) entered into a strategic partnership in 2017 to focus on improving access, quality and affordability of health care for patients and their families in the region.

The Opportunity

The Chief Nursing Officer is responsible for nursing practice, and overall administrative, operational and financial functions of nursing and clinical areas. This includes proactively identifying progressive approaches to deliver patient care, and enhance patient satisfaction and the culture of nursing and clinical services. As a key senior leader, the CNO provides strategic direction, executive-level leadership, planning, organization and general management for all aspects of patient care at PSH Hampden Medical Center, ensuring integration of services, advancing the organization’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, and compliance with long-range objectives and strategies, including the provision of excellent quality services and sound business practices.

The Candidate

The successful candidate will have 10+ years of experience in health care, with seven plus years of progressive management experience in nursing administration. Requirements: BSN degree, an MSN or similar advanced degree and a current Pennsylvania RN license (or ability to obtain). Valued: previous facility start-up experience; prior experience within a health system; community hospital experience.

The Community

Enola is located directly across the Susquehanna River from Harrisburg and is part of the West Shore area of Harrisburg, an attractive and desirable location for suburban living. The area is growing and offers a wonderful diversity of culture, food, events and landscape. The area’s moderate, mid-Atlantic climate provides for long summers and early spring weather, accentuated by rolling hills, beautiful lakes and gorgeous countryside views. Harrisburg International Airport offers flights to many major hubs and cities.

~A strong base salary, incentive plan, relocation and executive benefits package is offered~
