BOARD OF TRUSTEES

Seven members make up the Board of Trustees for OCH Regional Medical Center.  Each of the county supervisors appoints one member to represent his respective district. Two members are appointed "at-large" with each supervisor appointing in a rotating manner.  Each trustee serves a five-year term.

The Board meets in a regular session every month, with occasional special meetings called when needed.

As with any corporate board, trustees are the overall supreme authority in the hospital.  Their first and primary duty is to hire a competent administrator and invest in him the necessary authority to run the hospital. They also appoint (or remove) each member of the medical staff, based upon the recommendation of such from the organized medical staff through its committee system, state law, and the board's determination of the best interest of the patients the hospital serves.

Trustees accept a tremendous amount of responsibility, obligation, and liability when they agree to serve on the board of OCH.  They truly serve best when each member realizes the awesome responsibility of overseeing an organization that is, by nature, an extremely complex service that is vital to any growing, thriving community.
