SHS Board Member

Spectrum Health Services, Inc., (SHS). Board of Directors is largely made up of community members and current and past patients. This ensures the needs of the community are being met in terms of addressing health issues and in the quality and delivery of services.

The Board:

  • Meets monthly
  • Is a working board (expect to have “things to do” in-between meetings)
  • Oversees the governance of SHS

Are you interested in serving a medically underserved area or population? Do you have ideas on how to improve the health of our community? Do you think you can help improve the health center’s operations?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, SHS Board membership may be right for you. But to get a feel for what’s expected, we suggest volunteering on our SHS’s Sub Committee first.

For information on Board membership at SHS contact HR at hr@spectrumhs.org.

SHS Sub-Committees

Volunteering on a sub-committee is a great way to learn about Spectrum Community Health Center. If you were thinking about applying to be on the SHS Board of Directors, spending time on an sub-committee would be an excellent first step to becoming familiar with the organization and the community it serves.

  • Review patient satisfaction survey results
