Novant Health seeks an accomplished and strategic physician leader, with a national reputation for clinical care in the neurosciences, to serve as the System Physician Executive (SPE) for the Neuroscience Institute. This is an opportunity for a visionary and dynamic leader to craft a long term vision to further evolve a world-class neurosciences institute to serve as a destination service for Novant Health and the state of North Carolina.

Novant is one of the largest and most innovative nonprofit health systems in the country, spanning North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. This $5.4 billion integrated system comprises 15 hospitals and a multispecialty medical group consisting of approximately 1,700 physicians across 687 clinic locations.

The Neurosciences Institute is the region’s pre-eminent center, providing the latest in ground-breaking advances and treatment techniques in the field. With over 80 physicians, the team is comprised of accomplished neurologists, neurosurgeons, spine surgeons, and pain and sleep medicine specialists across Novant Health's three major markets: Charlotte, Winston-Salem and Wilmington. The Institute is on a path of expansion, building a 58,000 square-foot center in Winston-Salem dedicated to neurosciences and is set to open a new neurology-based inpatient tower in New Hanover Regional Medical Center.

The SPE will lead the Neuroscience Institute to the next level through the advancement of clinical programs while continuing to meet and exceed national standards of excellence. They will cultivate strong alignment and working relationships and will be instrumental in shaping the overall clinical strategy of neurological care delivery across the region. Working across a large geographic footprint, the SPE will develop a multidisciplinary team based approach and will provide a uniform and organized standard of care.

The successful candidate will be an outstanding clinician and respected leader in neurology or neurosurgery with a track record of building leading-edge clinical programs and advancing clinical outcomes in a complex multi-facility environment.
