The Center for Health Affairs Board of Directors

The Center for Health Affairs' board of directors helps support Northeast Ohio hospital advocacy initiatives by focusing efforts on areas that benefit the healthcare community from a regional approach: healthcare workforce; emergency preparedness; public policy & advocacy; finance & reimbursement; and community initiatives. The Center's board of directors is governed by and consists of community leaders and administrators of hospitals and healthcare systems in Northeast Ohio. These individuals are responsible for all business of the association and have the authority to adopt policy for the association. The Center's board consists of 10 elected directors who typically meet quarterly.
