Board of Directors

A unique aspect of a Federally Qualified Health Center is that it must be governed by a community board composed of a majority (51% or more) of health center patients who represent the population served. The Cherry Health Governing Board of Directors define and preserve the mission of the organization, while serving as the voice of the community.
