Board of Directors

We understand that to build a culture of health you must convene the stakeholders. IHC convenes stakeholder groups from across the state to inform, promote, and enhance the work of the organization. Representatives include hospitals, physicians, nurses, pharmacy, long-term care, health systems, businesses, community leaders, and performance improvement. The collective expertise from this group and the board gives our organization a unique advantage to transform the healthcare landscape.
