What is a Regional Health Council?

We are excited to announce the launch of a new, more responsive, and solution-focused community governance structure. The Regional Health Councils bring together members, families, stakeholders, and providers to collectively identify challenges and priorities, share best practices, and create positive change in their area. They are designed to receive the feedback and data from the local communities in order to establish goals that will benefit the community.

The governance model will be aligned to four distinct regions comprised of five counties each. The Regional Health Councils utilize formal and informal data from each of the counties they represent to determine and prioritize areas of need and focus for each year. These areas of need are addressed in a Regional Health Improvement Plan (RHIP), which will include specific goals for the local counties to complete. Each Regional Health Council is supported by the Provider Partners Council, a regional Operations Council, and a Community Advisory Council (CAC) from each county.

Operations Council

Each region will have one (1) Operations Council to compile data received from Community Needs Assessments and determine the top areas of focus for the region. Learn more.

Community Advisory Council

Each CAC will serve as an avenue for people to present the needs of the community to the Regional Health Councils and complete the goals on the local level. Learn more or apply here.
