ACHS is a trailblazer in health care innovation and leadership, not just locally, but also at the state and national levels. Our culture is one of continuous improvement, constantly challenging the status quo, and advocating for those who might not have a voice. This mindset is deeply ingrained in our employees and leadership team, resulting in positive impacts that have contributed to ACHS’ ongoing success.
We are proud to have a consumer Board of Directors comprised of members who at least 51% are ACHS patients. This makes ACHS truly patient-centered, with members who live and work in the communities we serve. Our Board members come from a variety of professional backgrounds, including health care, banking, education, legal and financial institutions, and business owners.
As an FQHC, ACHS is required to have a majority of consumer members on our Board of Directors under the Section 330 Program Requirements. To be considered a consumer, individuals must receive the majority of their health care from the FQHC. Our Board has legal and fiduciary responsibility for clinic operations and grants, conducts regular strategic planning, and evaluates progress toward organizational goals. They approve annual budgets and federal grant applications, meet at least monthly, and keep meeting minutes. The Board has full authority over all aspects of clinic operations, and no other entity or individual can override or veto their decisions.
We are committed to upholding these high standards and providing exceptional healthcare services to our patients. Thank you for choosing ACHS as your trusted healthcare provider.
