ACHS is known for health care innovation and leadership on a local, state, and national level. It’s in our culture to challenge the system, come up with new ways to do things, and be a voice for those who may not have one. This way of doing things is ingrained in our employees and our leadership team. With their drive, we have been able to create a positive impact which has led to ACHS’ continued success.
ACHS is governed by a consumer Board of Directors, at least 51% of which are ACHS patients. This truly makes ACHS patient-centered. Our members are citizens who live and work in the communities we serve. Each comes to the table equipped with an array of professional backgrounds, including health care, banking, education, legal and financial institutions, and business owners.
Under the Section 330 Program Requirements, all FQHC Boards of Directors must have a majority of consumer members. To be considered a consumer, persons must receive the majority of their health care at the FQHC. FQHC Boards must carry legal and fiduciary responsibility for clinic operations and grants, must perform periodic strategic planning, and evaluate progress toward organizational goals. The Boards of Directors have a responsibility to approve Annual Budgets and all federal grant applications, and they must meet at least monthly and keep Board meeting minutes. They must have full authority over all aspects of clinic operations, and no other entity/individual can have the ability to override or veto governing board decisions.
