Charitable Health Network (CHN)

Executive Director

Seeking successor to retired ten-year director – available now


Ohio’s healthcare dilemma

Thousands of Ohioans urgently need healthcare they cannot access. Despite Medicaid expansion many remain uninsured, cannot afford high deductibles, or simply cannot find a physician accepting new patients. Member organizations of the Charitable Healthcare Network (CHN) exist to give those individuals the care they need and deserve.


The organization providing solutions

Based in Columbus, Ohio, across from the Statehouse with a staff of four, the Charitable Healthcare Network (CHN) is a dynamic membership organization of Ohio’s charitable and free healthcare providers focused on supporting and advocating for quality care for vulnerable populations. Its mission is to connect and strengthen Ohio’s healthcare safety net through resource sharing, organizational development, capacity building, and advocacy with the state legislature & charitable donors. https://www.charitablehealthcarenetwork.org


The opportunity for the next association leader

The next CHN leader will be in an enviable position to significantly impact marginalized families and communities across the state. Guiding and reporting to a 15-member state-wide Board of Directors, the next ED will inherit a financially secure nonprofit (founded in 2000 as Ohio Association of Free Clinics, OAFC) with more than 50 member organizations in 69 of the state’s 88 counties. A discerning understanding of today’s healthcare environment and barriers facing the underserved will be paramount, as will the ability to facilitate and maintain collaborative member engagement. Advocacy or lobbying experience will be essential to promote and provide for the urgent needs of CHN member organizations’ patients. Competitive benefits & salary of $110k+.
