Mountain People’s Health Councils, Inc. (MPHC) has a board of directors made up of members of the communities it serves. In fact, at least half of all board members must be active patients of the organization. This makes MPHC unique by allowing patients to have a direct say in the type of services provided at MPHC clinics. At least half of the board members know first-hand the level of care and customer service provided by MPHC staff. Their experiences as patients help shape the organization and provide direction for continuous improvement.

MPHC’s board consists of nine members, five women and four men. These board members reasonably represent the individuals served by the organization in terms of race, ethnicity, and gender. Currently, seven of the nine members (66%) use Mountain People’s clinics as their primary source of medical care. There are currently board members from each of the communities served by MPHC clinics. Board members are from varying socio-economic backgrounds and professions including banking, healthcare, public service, and business. MPHC is fortunate to have these dedicated advocates for comprehensive and affordable health care on its Board of Directors.

Several MPHC board members have served on the board for many years and their dedication to MPHC has helped guide the organization. MPHC board members believe in and support the mission of the organization to provide cost effective health care to the community.
