The Board


Health centers are governed by patient-majority boards that represent people served at the center and ensure accountability to the local community. The goal is to have a board of directors that is diverse to ensure a broad range of perspectives and good dialogue, and who collectively have the values, competencies, and commitment required to govern the health center effectively. A part of FQHC guidelines requires that WNCCHS to have a Board of Directors comprised of at least 51% of patient board members and 49% community members.  This means that our organization and the care we provide is directly impacted by real patients and members of our community.
