Chief Executive Officer

We are pleased to announce an exciting opportunity to lead Lynn Community Health Center (LCHC) as its next Chief Executive Officer. LCHC is a vital health care resource to the people of Lynn and a recognized leader and innovator among community health centers nationwide. Lori Berry, LCHC’s CEO for the past 20 years, is retiring. The Board of Directors is seeking a seasoned health care executive and advocate to lead LCHC into the future, fulfilling its mission to provide comprehensive, affordable, patient-centered, quality health care to the community, regardless of ability to pay.


This is a time of extraordinary change for community health centers (CHCs) and for health care more broadly. Successfully navigating these changes will require a leader with knowledge of, and experience in, health care finance, operations and quality improvement. The new CEO will be a forward-thinking, culturally competent leader with a demonstrated commitment to health equity, diversity and serving underserved communities. The CEO will provide leadership in setting strategic direction and shaping policy, and will be accountable for LCHC’s overall management and performance. S/he will build organizational capacity and capabilities, foster organizational growth as appropriate, and ensure quality services and financial stability and sustainability. The new CEO will be collaborative, communicate openly, and cultivate trusting relationships with a myriad of key stakeholder groups. S/he will ensure that LCHC continues to serve as a model of excellence for its services, programs and partnerships.


The ideal candidate will be comfortable partnering with a Community Board and have proven success leading a large fast-paced, multi-faceted organization with complex administrative, financial, operational and service demands. The next CEO will be responsible for leading a team delivering high quality, patient-centered health care and ensuring that LCHC continues to be a trusted and valued resource for the people of Lynn.
