Governance


Board of Directors:

Ravenswood Family Health Center is governed by a dedicated 14-member Board of Directors that sets policy and provides direction for our organization and staff. Each board member sits on one or more committees guiding Board Development, Quality Assurance, Finance, Audit, Fund Development, Personnel, Capital Projects, and Strategic Planning.

As a federally funded community health center, over 51% of our Board members are from the community and/or are registered patients of the clinic.

The operation of a community health center is challenging given the constant changes and increasing complexity of healthcare.  Thanks to the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) our Board members are trained at a week long NACHC “Boot Camp” where they learn the legal, administrative, financial, and clinical aspects of governing a health center.

Advisory Council

One our our greatest achievements in 2010 was to assemble an Advisory Council of Silicon Valley leaders. Each member contributes an expertise that can help us build a strong, sustainable health center.

Executive Leadership

The Chief Executive Officer reports to the Board of Directors and is responsible for overseeing operations, public relations, finance, contracting, salaries, human resources, medical and business information systems, planning, development, facilities and insurances.  The executive team and program managers report to the CEO.

The Chief Medical Officer is primarily responsible for assuring the highest quality of organizational practice and medical care at RFHC. This includes the implementation of a quality assurance process to monitor organizational policies and procedures and the facilitation of the resolution of clinical issues affecting patient care services. 

The Chief Financial Officer is primarily responsible for assuring the financial integrity and viability of RFHC. The CFO oversees day-to-day management and the organization’s financial functions.
