Board of Directors
The HSI Board of Directors meets requirements of a Community Health Center under section 330 of the Public Health Services and is ultimately responsible for all HSI activities including planning and policies. With nineteen voting board members plus the non-voting CEO, the board generally reflects the user population in ethnicity.
There are also two clinical community representatives on the board in the health care field, a physician and a nurse. The board is appropriate for the size of the organization and is represented from various sectors of the community including: business operation, local government, banking, health care, public health, education, and personnel counseling.
Official board training is completed in a two-step process, an initial meeting for orientation, followed by annual formal board training involving: bylaws, 330 requirements, financial data, operation structure, policies, and ongoing changes in the healthcare arena.
