BIRHC Board has Opening

At the June 10th meeting the Beaver Island Rural Health Center Board adopted mission statements The Center’s is “To provide high-quality cost-effective patient treatment and wellness services to the whole Beaver Island Community.” The Board’s purpose is “To make policy and planning decisions which enable the Center to accomplish its mission, and to insure the Center’s long-term financial stability.”

The board considers these commitments the first step in completing a comprehensive strategic plan mapping the direction for the Center going forward. The “platform” for the strategic plan was built several years ago by a community-wide planning task force which issued its report in August of 2000.

Given the tasks which will be driven by the Board’s plans, it’s important that several current Board vacancies be filled with responsible, dedicated community members. With this in mind, Board President Connie Wojan is inviting interested parties to submit applications to join the Board in carrying out its mission. Requirements are simply that Board members:

  • Champion the BIRHC in the community;

  • Commit to the mission of the BIRHC and the goals and objectives approved by the Board

  • Attend meetings regularly and be active on at least one committee

  • Actively support all efforts to insure the long-term financial stability of the BIRHC;

  • Honor/confidentiality pledge: accept the distinction between the Board’s role (governance) and the Manager’s role (insuring that operating objectives are met), and support the chief operating manager so she/he can be successful.

Letters of interest should be addressed to Connie Wojan Please include a statement indicating where you could make the most effective contribution to the Board.
