Administrator – Milford Haven Home

Milford Haven Home for Special Care, owned and operated by the Municipality of the District of Guysborough, Nova Scotia, is seeking an experienced Administrator.

In this role, you will have overall responsibility for management of the organization including finances, facilities, operations, human resources, administration, licensing, board relations, and regulatory requirements.

You will ensure that all residents receive the high standard of care and services they expect and that their families receive regular communication about their well-being. This involves seeking ways to improve the overall quality of care, being receptive to new ideas and approaches, and making certain that all programs support the philosophy of independence and dignity.

Likewise, you will demonstrate the same degree of leadership and care toward staff who work in stressful situations daily. This means supporting them with coaching and training, and by providing regular performance feedback.

What qualities are needed as Administrator?

To start, you must have a solid understanding of the issues facing the long-term care of seniors. Additionally, you have appropriate academic and professional qualifications and at least five years’ senior management experience in the health or social services field. Collaborative by nature, you have an impressive track record building consensus among many stakeholders such as governments, staff, residents, families, health authorities, and the community at large.

On top of all that, you are an exceptional administrator – fully adept in all aspects of day-to-day operations including human resources, finance, administration, operations, physical plant, and government relations. In performing these duties, you have an eye for quality and are relentless in trying to find new ways to improve the quality of care, operations and services. Lastly, you understand what good governance means and provide sound advice to the Board on strategic and policy matters.

If this opportunity peaks your interest, please forward your resume and a cover letter telling us how you can help Milford Haven Home for Special Care. Applications can be emailed to Gerald Walsh Associates Inc. at, quoting project number 1665 in the subject line.
