AllHealth Network CEO Search
AllHealth Network’s search for a new CEO is critically important to the organization, and is the highest priority of the Board of Directors. The search process requires diligence, commitment and a thoughtful approach, and we are pleased to have a partner in this effort with Cejka, an experienced and highly talented executive recruitment firm.
Below is a message written by AllHealth Network Board Chair, John Phillips on behalf of the Board of Directors and the search committee. Updates will continue to be provided on the progress of the search process.
Dear AllHealth Network Community,
AllHealth Network has provided behavioral health services in the metro Denver area for over sixty years, and cares for thousands of clients offering individual counseling and group therapy for adults, children and families. As you know, Joan DiMaria, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of AllHealth Network, Inc. (f/k/a Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network) ("AllHealth Network”) announced her retirement from AllHealth Network. Joan's retirement will be effective as of December 2, 2016.
In replacing this important role of CEO, AllHealth Network’s Board of Directors has established a five-member Search Committee to help AllHealth Network and the Board identify a qualified successor for Joan. One of the Search Committee's first responsibilities was to identify a professional search firm to assist us in this all-important endeavor. The Search Committee researched a number of search firms, conducted interviews, and checked references for each of the firms interviewed. After careful evaluation, we have retained Cejka Search ("Cejka"), a nationally known and highly regarded healthcare consulting and executive search firm. Cejka has completed leadership searches for non-profit and for-profit healthcare companies, including behavioral healthcare companies, throughout the country since 1981.
The search will be led by Joyce Tucker of Cejka. Joyce brings expertise, enthusiasm, and experience not only as a clinician but also as an executive leadership search consultant. For more information about Cejka and Joyce, we invite you to visit the Cejka web site. The Search Committee and AllHealth Network’s Executive Leadership Team will work closely with Cejka on this search. Joyce has met with AllHealth Network’s Executive Leadership Team and Search Committee to develop search criteria and a search process. Cejka promptly will be identifying and evaluating top prospects for the CEO role. Cejka, the Search Committee and the AllHealth Network’s Executive Leadership Team will work together on selecting top candidates and finalists to be presented to AllHealth Network’s Board of Directors for final approval.
We look forward to working with Joyce and her team at Cejka, AllHealth Network’s Executive Leadership Team and the Search Committee to identify and retain a qualified successor to Joan DiMaria, who for almost three decades has been an exceptional leader and an exemplary steward of the core values that define AllHealth Network’s community. We will continue to provide periodic updates as we work through this process. From the AllHealth Network community, thank you for your continued interest and support.
Chairman of the Board of Directors
