Mazzoni Center

Philadelphia, PA


Mazzoni Center is the premier health and wellness care provider in the Philadelphia region specifically targeting the health care needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities. It was founded in 1979 as an all-volunteer clinic to serve the needs of the LGBTQ community in Philadelphia. When the first cases of HIV/AIDS began to appear in the early 1980s, the organization quickly responded, becoming the oldest AIDS service organization in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the fourth oldest in the nation. As it grew and evolved to meet the needs of its constituents, Mazzoni Center combined HIV/AIDS-related services with a broad continuum of health care and supportive services, which include: outreach, prevention, education, direct medical and care services, psychosocial, mental health, therapeutic services, legal services, and support groups. With over 13,000 patients and 35,000 individuals benefiting annually from its services, Mazzoni Center has proven to be a leader among community-based organizations in the greater Philadelphia area, and has developed a reputation for excellence and innovation in service delivery to its constituents. Mazzoni Center currently has a staff of 150 individuals and a budget in excess of $16M.

Mazzoni Center is located in a new construction, beautiful, state of the art facility in historic Center City, Philadelphia. This is a unique opportunity to lead an organization that improves the lives of thousands, while making the City of Philadelphia and the surrounding communities stronger. Mazzoni Center is an essential part of the community that provides exceptional care to a diverse group of individuals. A passionate and committed staff of professionals is dedicated to the mission and to providing a broad scope of services to the people they serve.

Mazzoni Center is moving through a time of transition following the departure of its CEO, Medical Director and Board President. The organization is financially stable and growing as it continues to address the evolving needs of the community it serves. Significant measures have been taken by the Board of Directors to address underlying causes of concerns, including the hiring of an Interim CEO who is charged with conducting a comprehensive organizational assessment analyzing strengths, weaknesses, and implementing various immediate changes to improve operational efficiencies and to make recommendations for the future, permanent CEO to consider.

Mazzoni Center seeks a leader with the rare combination of true empathy and compassion for the clients it serves, a deep knowledge and understanding of the LGBTQ community, strategic thinking, innovation, leadership to provide excellent client outcomes, and the ability to lead a team of professionals with an inclusive, team-oriented management style.

The Search Committee is especially interested in qualified candidates who can work with the Board on a strategic plan to ensure the financial well being of Mazzoni, improve the culture of the organization, and build on and enforce agency wide policies that instill consistency, accountability, cross-departmental communication and collaboration.
