South Australian practitioner owned and operated for over 30 years, sportsmed is an industry leading private orthopaedic hospital and practice, day surgery and multi-disciplinary outpatient clinic provider. With around 300 staff and a turnover of approximately $50m, sportsmed offers patients access to modern and innovative healthcare in state-of-the-art facilities.

Reporting to the Board (which includes two Independent Directors) and working closely with the corporate and clinical management team, the Chief Executive Officer will be a strategic thinker who is committed to develop and continue to grow the success of sportsmed in line with the vision and values central to all of its operations.  Key responsibilities will include:

  • strategy formulation and implementation for the hospital and orthopaedic practice;
  • leading, mentoring, motivating and developing the dedicated professionals to continue a positive culture and the highest standards of excellence;
  • overseeing the delivery of ongoing operating and financial efficiencies and performance improvements;
  • maintaining and enhancing consummate relationships with a diverse range of public and private stakeholders. 

Applications are encouraged from appropriately qualified and highly experienced executives who can demonstrate proven leadership in a comparable business.  Health or human services experience and an understanding of the dynamics of a privately owned professional services environment will naturally be an advantage but are not essential.  Key qualities sought include genuine contemporary leadership abilities, commercial and political acumen, strategic and innovative thinking, highly developed communication and negotiation skills, diplomacy, proactivity, vision, influencing and advocacy capabilities. 

A highly attractive remuneration package will be offered to attract a high calibre professional capable of leading this respected and successful South Australian organisation that prides itself on creating the best patient care and experience.
