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.
