Finance Director 

Island Nursing Home and Care Center (INH), an innovative, nonprofit nursing home in beautiful Deer Isle, Maine, announces the search for a Finance Director. 

The Position
Reporting to and partnering with the INH’s Administrator, the Finance Director will play a critical role in the development and implementation of strategies, structures, and policies. The Finance Director will have responsibility for the preparation of the annual budget, financial reporting, and the implementation and management of systems that allow the finance and administrative offices to operate in an effective manner. In addition, the Finance Director provides oversight and direction for the financial and administrative offices and their staffs, as well as oversight of the IT infrastructure. 

Because community engagement is part of everyday life at INH, it is an expectation that our Finance Director will be someone who has a desire to get to know each of our employees, our residents and their families and who wants to be part of a community that cares deeply for the home we’ve created. The Finance Director will also staff the Finance Committee and report at Board meetings, so comfort with and confidence in presenting and reporting will be essential. 

Background and Overview  
Established in 1983 by community members who wanted to keep their aging family, friends and neighbors close to home, today INH serves 70 residents—38 in nursing (including a small number in skilled nursing) and 32 in residential care—most of whom come from the island or nearby communities. A long-time and highly experienced management team has created an environment where care is tailored to the unique needs of our residents and where independence and dignity are priorities.

INH has an annual budget of $4 million, and, with 95 employees, is the largest employer on Deer Isle and one of the largest employers in Hancock County. More than a quarter of the staff have worked at INH for more than a decade, and there are several who have been with the organization since its founding. Together they offer residential care, long-term care, skilled nursing, hospice, activities for residents, and the first Namaste program in Maine (visual, auditory, and physical stimulation for residents with dementia). 

INH benefits from the engagement of an active board of directors whose members provide appropriate oversight and are active in their committee roles. In the spring of 2015, the board launched a $2 million capital campaign to fund refurbishment that will enhance our residents’ quality of life and significantly improve our ability to serve them. Work is scheduled to begin in 2017.

INH’s mission: to provide the highest level of innovative and quality healthcare to an aging population while maintaining community relations and honoring our core values of care, compassion, and service.
