WHY become a Board Member?
Well, we get asked this question a lot. Instead of giving you an answer – we will ask you a few questions. Do you use your local hospital? Do you care about the quality of care our residents receive? Do you want to make sure your hospital remains vibrant in five, ten, fifteen (you get the drift) years? Do you want to expand your network? Well, if you answered yes to all of the questions - we think you have your answer.
What type of SKILLS do you need to become a Board Member?
We are looking for a variety of skill mix. If you have expertise in financial, redevelopment, legal and contract management, public relations and community engagement, clinical services and patient advocacy, or construction management – great. We are also always looking for people who have a passion for improving the quality of care in our hospitals. If you are not sure you have what it takes or if your awesomeness will be helpful– give us a call. You may be surprised!
