Chief Experience Officer

Job Overview:

The Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes’ Foundation (DLBHF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, seeks a motivated and detail-oriented individual to join our team as the Chief Experience Officer (CXO). In this, you will play a pivotal role in shaping and delivering exceptional experiences for our stakeholders, including partners, program users (e.g., hospital leaders, healthcare executives, and healthcare workers), donors, ambassadors, policymakers, media, staff, and the healthcare worker well-being community at large. You will lead the strategic vision and execution of all aspects related to enhancing the experience journey, ensuring alignment with the Foundation’s mission, values, and objectives.

Founded in 2020, DLBHF was established to protect and care for the well-being of healthcare professionals. Our national efforts focus on changing the culture and conditions that lead to burnout and trauma, as well as eliminating the stigma that deters healthcare professionals from seeking mental health care. Our namesake, Dr. Lorna Breen, devoted her career to practicing emergency medicine, becoming Director of the ER at Allen Hospital in Manhattan. She went from treating pandemic victims to becoming a casualty of a healthcare industry that is ill-equipped to take care of its own, when she died by suicide in 2020.
