Kirby Bates Associates is honored to work in collaboration with the Massachusetts General Hospital to identify an exceptional nursing leader to serve as Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) for Jiahui International Health (JIH) in Shanghai, China.
This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to join a highly progressive and collaborative leadership team and dedicated healthcare professionals who are all committed to transforming healthcare throughout China and beyond, while living and working in one of the most beautiful parts of the world.
THE ORGANIZATION JIH is the first of its kind in China, described as a multi-site, vertically integrated “ecosystem”, based on a culture of interprofessional teamwork and innovation with a patient and family focus. Jiahui leadership is driven by a strong mission to “change the landscape of medicine, not just in China, but globally,” through their commitment to an exceptional patient and family experience and the provision of high-quality care meeting or exceeding international standards. Throughout this development, JIH has benefited greatly from their partnership with the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), in Boston, MA.
In Phase I, JIH is a 250-bed (authorized up to 500 beds) tertiary care facility, located in Shanghai’s city centre, with women’s health and cancer as the two initial Centres of Excellence, which JIH wants to drive to the highest standard and reputation nationally. As of July 2018, JIH is operating three busy outpatient clinics, collectively averaging 130 patients per day. Inpatient operations started in late February 2018 with a total of 36 admissions through July 10, 2018. In August 2018, a separate ICU will open, along with the Emergency Department. Radiation Oncology and Obstetrics will open in September, and the NICU will open in October.
THE POSITION The JIH CNO will play a key role in the development of a better healthcare model in China. The CNO is accountable for assuring competent, compassionate patient care is uniformly provided throughout JIH. Key areas of focus are: 1) Patient Care and Quality Outcomes; 2) Leadership and Strategy; 3) Operations and Efficiency; 4) Human Capital Leadership; and, 5) Research and Education. The evidence-based nursing professional practice model and patient care delivery model were developed in collaboration with MGH. The CNO will continue to support the model and create a culture of life?long learning.
There is an acting CNO in place, as well as Directors for the Cancer Center, Inpatient Nursing, Women’s Health, Outpatient Services (including ED), the Network of clinics, and Perioperative Services (OR/Endo and CSSD). There is also a Director for Patient Quality and Safety, Infection Control Manager, Nursing Informatics Manager, Nursing Affairs Officer, three Nurse Educators and two Patient Educators. All members of the Nursing leadership team speak English and Chinese. In 2018, a total of 219 nursing staff will be hired. This is an all RN nursing staff.

A BSN and graduate degree are required along with RN licensure in current state/country of employment.
Must be fluent in English and, ideally, also speak Mandarin.
Must have demonstrated organizational, managerial, and entrepreneurial skills; demonstrated experience establishing partnerships and alliances at all levels of the organization; and the ability to build a team of engaged employees.
