Chief Executive Officer, Rural Health Enterprise, LLP

This is a unique opportunity for an entrepreneurial, results-driven, proven leader in healthcare to lead the Rural Health Enterprise, Limited Liability Partnership (RHE). RHE is a new for-profit subsidiary of The Rural Collaborative (TRC), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.


RHE includes a General Partner, which is TRC, and 16 Limited Partners, all of whom are members of TRC, and the Partnership could grow as large as 25. Limited Partners must be members of TRC. Additionally, RHE will have Non-Equity Partners, who may represent healthcare entities that are not part of TRC but wish to participate in the RHE.

The purpose of RHE is to create unparalleled value for rural hospitals and health systems through either increased revenue and/or reduced expenses. This will be accomplished by gaining economies of scale through maximized participation in shared, high-value health services. RHE’s vision is to generate revenue and reduce costs through participation in its health services and programs.


The CEO serves as the administrative officer, reporting to the RHE Managing Board Chair. At the outset, this role will be the candidate’s sole focus. The ideal candidate is confident in their potential to achieve investment milestones and metrics of success, which will be set in collaboration with the RHE Board. A successful candidate will have an entrepreneurial mindset, and the ability to translate and implement a business plan into tangible programs or services. Additionally, the incumbent will have strong and proven business expertise, and will oversee the financial aspects of RHE. We seek the individual who can both think creatively and translate ideas into action, with a passion for fulfilling opportunities to advance over time. Our ideal candidate is someone who proactively identifies and chases down new opportunities. At such time deemed as appropriate by the RHE Board, this position also will also support TRC, providing executive oversight over TRC’s financial operations and its strategic goals to reduce administrative burden from payers and explore alternative rural payment models.


The successful candidate will preferably have a MBA, MHA, JD, or CPA with a minimum eight years working within healthcare administration (CFO, CEO or COO). Minimum five years of leadership experience with accountability for managing a team. Extensive experience leading high profile contract negotiations, business planning and strategic execution of initiatives. Experience in negotiating vendor and payer contracts for rural health systems.
