The Cleveland Clinic, a distinguished academic healthcare system, announces its search for Chair of the Department of Intensive Care & Resuscitation.

The Department of Intensive Care & Resuscitation is a department within the Cleveland Clinic's Anesthesiology Institute (AI), which unites all specialists in cardiothoracic anesthesia, critical care, general anesthesia, pain management, pediatric anesthesia, and the regional practice (community hospital) anesthesia, outcomes research, and graduate medical education within one fully integrated model of care. The mission of the Anesthesiology Institute is to be a recognized leader in perioperative care through education, research, and innovation within an environment that creates a safe, effective, efficient, and best possible experience for our patients and caregivers.

The Department of Intensive Care & Resuscitation provides clinical care at 10 Cleveland Clinic locations in northeast Ohio, and is comprised of 175 beds, including the Surgical Intensive Care Unit and Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU) at the Cleveland Clinic Main Campus, and Intensive Care Units at 4 regional locations. The CVICU is one of the largest cardiac units in the country providing care to our #1 ranked cardiac surgical program, including a high-level heart failure program that utilizes ECMO and ventricular assist device management. The Department also includes the Advanced Practice Critical Care House Officer team, which provides hospitalist-type care at 9 regional hospitals. The Department leads the Critical Response and Resuscitation Committee, which is an enterprise-wide committee that oversees the cardiac, medical and pediatric medical emergency response teams.

The Department of Intensive Care & Resuscitation is comprised of over 250 caregivers, under the direction of the Chair, including over 50 multi-specialty critical care intensivists (representing 6 specialties), 94 advanced practice providers, respiratory therapists (in the CVICU) and administrative support. The Department's staff participates in resident, fellow, and medical student education for students enrolled in the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine, Case Western Reserve School of Medicine, and other schools providing electives within our institution. The Critical Care fellowship is an ACGME-accredited fellowship program consisting of 10 fellows.

The ideal Chair candidate should be a recognized leader within critical care as an outstanding clinician, educator, and scholar, who supports research and education within a multi-specialty organization. The Department Chair will have ultimate responsibility for the clinical, educational, research, and fiscal oversight within the department in order to achieve personal and institutional success. The Department Chair must be a demonstrated leader with strength in communication and collaboration both within and outside of the department. A faculty appointment at a rank commensurate with experience is available at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University.
