Community Governing Boards

PeaceHealth is guided by the PeaceHealth Board of Directors and by a Governing Board in each community we serve in Oregon, Washington and Alaska. These volunteer board members are community leaders who fully partner with PeaceHealth  in making and supporting decisions based on our Mission and Values as well as our Vision for the organization—that every PeaceHealth patient receives safe, evidence-based, compassionate care: every time, every touch.  Our Board of Directors is charged with setting policy regarding quality, stewardship, planning, community service and advocacy.
