Community Advisory Board

Being a community-owned hospital means being community-focused. For 45 years OCH Regional Medical Center has taken pride in providing patient-first care, and the addition of a Community Advisory Board is yet another method to ensure the community’s healthcare needs are being met. 

THE OCH COMMUNITY ADVISORY BOARD is a representative group of volunteer members who live and work in and around
Oktibbeha County and the surrounding counties serviced by OCH REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER. The Advisory Board’s purpose is to improve and promote communication between OCH Regional Medical Center and the community by bringing questions, concerns and ideas from the community to hospital leaders and keeping the community informed of the hospital’s goals and objectives.
Through regular board meetings and subcommittees, advisors will communicate regularly with hospital leadership and will be solicited for their views and opinions on decisions impacting OCH and the broader community.

– Attend quarterly meetings
– Update the community via social media and person-to-person communication about pertinent hospital information
– Provide feedback about hospital’s programs and services and community needs
– Promote OCH Regional Medical Center in the community

Applications should be submitted by 5 pm Wednesday, April 25. Those selected to serve on the Board will be notified by May 1.

Questions about the application process may be directed to the OCH Marketing & Public Relations Department at (662) 615-3066/3067 or
