Chief Medical Officer
The Soldiers’ Home in Holyoke
(state-funded facility; long term care, hospice, residential and outpatient services)
This is an exciting opportunity for a contemporary physician to move into a leadership role in a mission-driven facility and champion continued improvements in the quality of health care for veterans. In addition to excellent clinical skills and strategies, this leader must be an excellent communicator. This is an opportunity to make a positive mark, including key involvement in the implementation of a new EMR system and facility redesign to further support best practices.
The CMO must have more than two years of clinical experience as a fully licensed physician. Knowledge in the areas of infection control practices, especially for those with advanced age and in extended care or residential settings, and provision of care for veterans or knowledge of military culture, is beneficial.
