The Value and Impact of Ravenswood Family Health Network

Board of Directors

Ravenswood Family Health Network is governed by a dedicated 11-member Board of Directors (including one Board Liaison). The Board of Directors exercises policy oversight and provides direction for our organization. Our board members also sit on our Board Development, Quality, Finance, Audit, Personnel, Advocacy, Compliance, and Strategic Planning committees.

As a federally funded community health center, the majority 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. All of our Board members receive training from the National Association of Community Health Center’s Board Member Boot Camp, from which they learn the legal, administrative, financial, and clinical aspects of governing a health center.
