Our voluntary Common Board of Directors is comprised of dedicated volunteers from the community and consists of 15 elected members and six ex-officio members.

Each director is expected to act honestly, in good faith, and in the best interests of the hospitals and in so doing, to support the hospital in fulfilling its mission and discharging its accountabilities.

Board Recruitment

Healthcare touches everyone in our community. If you’re looking for a place to volunteer your skills and have a wide community impact, HHS is interested in you.

Our Common Board is focused on governance, so you won’t be asked to raise funds. Our committees can be a bit more hands-on in their tasks but ultimately, they all make recommendations to the Common Board.
