RIP Medical Debt | New York, NY

Permanent Position


RIP Medical Debt is a national, New York-based nonprofit organization that locates, acquires, and abolishes medical debt for people experiencing financial hardship.  Since its founding in 2014, RIP has acquired and abolished nearly $4 billion of medical debt, helping over 2.3 million families.


The Vice President of Hospital Relations will join RIP Medical Debt (RIP) at a signal moment in the life of the organization.  Founded in 2014, RIP is dedicated to removing the burden of medical debt for individuals and families across the United States. RIP raises and deploys donor funds to eradicate the healthcare related debt burden of those who can least afford it.  With the recent gift of an unrestricted grant of $50 million by MacKenzie Scott, RIP is investing in its organizational infrastructure and staff, and implementing plans to increase the amount of debt it abolishes to $10 billion annually.  RIP also aspires to influence public policy, to address the root causes of medical debt, and ultimately, to make progress toward eliminating disparities and inequities in access to health care.


Reporting to the Executive Director, the Vice President of Hospital Relations will lead, develop, and execute strategies to obtain medical debt for the purpose of abolishment. This includes the identification and pursuit of opportunities as well as the negotiation of transaction terms.  The Vice President of Hospital Relations will be a strategic thinker, knowledgeable about medical revenue cycle operations, with the skills and temperament to identify and close new medical debt acquisition opportunities and to join efforts to build and enhance RIP’s internal systems.  The Vice President of Hospital Relations will join a seasoned team with established expertise in the secondary debt market and growing experience working directly with providers.  As needed, new hires will expand RIP’s direct relationships to healthcare providers.  RIP Medical Debt staff anticipate returning to an office setting in NYC in the near future, location to be determined.  The Vice President of Hospital Relations will be based in the New York metropolitan area.
