Director, Regional Planning & Performance
Vancouver Coastal Health Authority (VCHA)
Vancouver B.C.

Canada's largest healthcare provider, VCHA is responsible for delivering high quality integrated services to a population of over 1 million. The Authority has 12 acute care facilities, two diagnostic treatment centers, over 7,000 residential care beds, and delivers over 600 programs in over 400 facilities within the region. The delivery of service is managed through three interlocking networks: Primary Care, Acute Care and Community Care. The Primary Health Care Network services include medical clinics, outpatient, health promotion and population health programs, services for mental health and addictions, chronic disease management services and community living supportive services.

As the Director, Regional Planning & Performance you will have a mandate that encompasses two distinct areas of responsibility. Firstly you will be the author of the operational plan that provides the board and the ministry with an understanding of the financial, people, and operational implications associated with the strategic plan and work with the ministry in the development of the accountability and performance model metrics for the Authority. In performing this role, the Director must be able to have strategic interaction at a very senior level across the organization and ministry.

The second aspect of the role will be more operationally driven. You will be responsible for developing the directional plan, business case, analysis and the strategic plan for the Primary Health Care Network. This work will support the integration of services across the region, the long-term direction of the network and support the evaluation of changes to the service delivery model. In carrying out these responsibilities you will ensure that the Primary Health Care Network has a strategic plan and operating model that links the need for services with population demand, identifies facility needs, outlines financial implications and evaluates opportunities presented by changes in the treatment modality.

You have a track record of success in a performance management/accountability role within a large, complex public sector organization with parallels to VCHA. You must have the ability to work across an organization, pulling together the complex pieces of information to create an integrated document that addresses resource, facility, program and staffing issues, requirements and options. From a personal perspective, you are an engaging individual who thrives in an intellectually challenging environment. You have the ability to: assimilate complex information quickly, guide people in the development of workable operational strategies, or solutions, develop and integrate highly malleable business and financial models and build relationships across an organization.
