Jewish Child Care Association of New York (JCCA), located in New York City, has retained Witt/Kieffer to conduct a national search for a dynamic, distinguished, clinical executive to serve as its inaugural Chief Administrative Medical Officer (CAMO). The CAMO provides administrative leadership for health and behavioral health services at JCCA. This newly created role is a unique opportunity to serve as a key administrative leader at a respected organization with a key mission to serve children. The position will focus on linking children in JCCA programs to medical care, and leading all the accompanying processes from service contracting to performance monitoring and enhancement, and all the associated regulatory compliance and documentation. In-house providers include two pediatricians and one psychiatrist, along with a significant number of nurses.
Since 1822, JCCA’s mission has been to provide the highest quality child welfare and mental health services to New York’s neediest and most vulnerable children and families to ensure that their safety, permanency, and well-being leads to a life of stability and promise. JCCA is guided by the Jewish mandate of tikkun olam — the responsibility of every person to make the world a better place. JCCAs highly trained, dedicated staff works in partnership with 17,000 children and families every year to build on their strengths, preserve the family when possible, and help create new families when necessary, so that all children may thrive in a safe and loving place they can call home.
JCCA retains primary care responsibility for multiple families, including some with medically fragile children. Those existing and future medical linkages will include retaining the provision of some direct care, and developing relationships with community partners. New community collaborations will add a layer of complexity to the required record keeping and further development of electronic records and health information exchanges. JCCA primarily supports children and families in the Bronx and Brooklyn, with a new location under development that will help consolidate the Brooklyn services. Efforts are supported by an endowment of approximately $60 million and philanthropic activity that raises additional total annual gifts of $3-4 million.
The CAMO will direct JCCAs transition to value-based reimbursement for medical activities, the increased presence of Medicaid Managed Care Organizations, and ensuring care and systems meet all state and federal regulatory requirements.
We seek an accomplished MD, RN or PNP, with the ability to gain licensure in the State of New York. Considerable knowledge and experience working with Medicaid and Managed Care Organizations is required, as well as a proven track-record of working closely with finance and program staff to ensure continuity of quality care and successful integration of record keeping and billing.

Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to hearing from you.
