The St. Charles Board of Directors has begun working with a national search firm to find our next inspiring president and Chief Executive Officer for St. Charles Health System.

As part of the process, we are actively seeking input from St. Charles employees, providers, community partners and many other key stakeholders on what attributes are most needed in our next CEO. We launched an internal survey this week to our more than 5,000 employees and members of our medical staff to ensure they have a chance to share their voice on this important topic.

The information gathered will go into development of the job profile used to source candidates who are both highly qualified and a great fit to lead St. Charles into the future. Once the profile is created, we anticipate beginning the public search phase for candidates in early 2023.  

Ultimately, the St. Charles Board of Directors has the responsibility to select our next president and CEO. The input-gathering phase we are going through now will ensure the board’s search committee knows what matters most to the communities we have the privilege to serve. Because St. Charles is a community asset, we also believe it is important to keep you informed about the steps we are taking along the way.

Thanks to those of you who have already dedicated time to this process. It is heartening to know that our communities are invested in the future success of our health system.
