Job Description

Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation

Marlton, NJ

Chief Executive Officer (CEO)


Kessler Institute has pioneered the course of physical medicine and rehabilitation for more than 70 years. Today, we continue to lead this field as one of the nation’s largest and most respected rehabilitation hospitals.

We are proud to be one of only seven centers to hold federal designation as a Model System for the treatment and research of both traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries. It’s that same level of expertise and experience that also defines our programs for stroke, neurologic diseases, amputation, orthopedic trauma, cardiac recovery and cancer rehabilitation.

Kessler’s remarkable teams of rehabilitation specialists integrate the advanced care, proven treatment and leading-edge technologies that enable our patients to regain their strength, skills and independence. Our physician-led teams share one goal: to help our patients rebuild their lives.

We offer a unique continuum and continuity of care from our four inpatient hospital campuses – in West Orange (152 beds), Saddle Brook (112 beds), Chester (72 beds) and Marlton (61 beds), N.J. – to our more than 96 outpatient Kessler Rehabilitation Center locations throughout the state.

These are just some of the reasons why U.S. News & World Report has recognized Kessler Institute as one of the nation’s Best Rehabilitation Hospitals for 28 consecutive years, and why we are the highest ranking hospital in the mid-Atlantic region and the only rehabilitation hospital in New Jersey to be nationally ranked. It’s also why thousands of individuals from across the country and around the world choose Kessler Institute for their rehabilitation each year.


This executive position serves and supports our Marlton NJ (61 beds) location. The CEO provides leadership and management of assigned campus within established goals and objectives ensuring superior quality care, employee engagement and customer service while maximizing profitability. These responsibilities and specific duties are performed in a manner consistent with our corporate values and principles - The Select Medical Way. This is an excellent opportunity to provide hands-on operations management with a focus on business development, physician relations, quality services and fiscal responsibility.


The CEO participates as a member of senior management in supporting the operations of the hospital, assisting in planning both short and long term goals, establishing budgets and fiscal monitoring, and assuring delivery of services in accordance with Inpatient Rehabilitation Division standards as well as the standards of applicable federal and state regulatory agencies. This role is responsible for ensuring a collaborative management approach and coordination of interdisciplinary, intercampus state-of-the-art programs and cost effective operations to meet patient care needs within a best practice model. The CEO will participate in administrative team meetings and will assure that superior quality, innovative and technologically advance services and treatments are provided to all patients.


Qualified candidates will have 5 to 7 years senior experience in hospital operations, contract negotiations, revenue enhancement and expense control. The ideal candidate will also have a strong commitment to authentic leadership, outstanding customer service and continuing program development in a dynamic and highly competitive healthcare market.


  1. Master’s Degree in Healthcare Administration, business or related discipline required. 
  2. Clinical experience in a rehabilitation discipline (OT, PT, Speech Therapy or Nursing) preferred.
  3. Minimum of five years’ experience in the healthcare industry, with at least three to five years in an administrative and/or management position with proven outcomes required.
  4. A strong dedication to authentic leadership, exceptional customer service and continuing program development.
