Chief Advancement Officer

Lawrence General Hospital

Lawrence, Massachusetts

Recognized as one of the best facilities in the country for excellent care and affordable costs, Lawrence General Hospital (LGH) is driven by a single overriding goal: to make sure that its local community has access to high-quality, high-value care, whenever the need arises. Its cardiac care services rank among the very best in the state and the cardiac center has garnered two national accreditations. LGH is also leading the way with new techniques in breast imaging, gastroenterology and many more specialty areas, and it hosts the most comprehensive pediatric specialty center outside of Boston. LGH enjoys many of the highest patient safety and quality ratings in the region.

Generous support from the community helps keep Lawrence General on the cutting edge of technology. During one recent fundraising campaign, donors invested more than $575,000 to fully renovate the LGH pediatric center, enhancing the family-friendly environment with new private rooms that make it possible for parents to stay with their child overnight. LGH is clinically affiliated with Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, further increasing its in-house expertise.

The Opportunity

Reporting to the President and CEO, the Chief Advancement Officer (CAO) will oversee the organization’s fundraising program in an effort to attract maximum financial support from individuals, businesses, foundations, and community organizations, while helping to build and enhance the LGH image and perception of its services and programs. The CAO will also develop a comprehensive fundraising program that supports the Hospital’s strategic and growth goals and advances the mission of the hospital. The ideal candidate will have a track record of having built an infrastructure for a successful comprehensive philanthropy program, and possess 8+ years progressive fundraising experience, preferably in healthcare.
