This week, two DCH Board Trustees were honored with an Iowa Hospital Association (IHA) Hospital Board Certification. The IHA Hospital Board Certification program provides a framework for hospital trustees and governing boards to demonstrate their individual and collective commitment to their governance roles and responsibilities. Certification is made up of two components: education and governance best practices. Trustees who have met the certification requirements have completed 12 hours of health care-specific education over a two-year period, and confirm individually and as a board that recognized governance best practices are being utilized.
Denise Elefson, Chair of the DCH Board of Trustees, received her initial certification this year. Sheri Frost, Vice Chair of the DCH Board of Trustees, received her renewal.
Please help us say THANK YOU to Denise and Sheri, and all of our Board Trustees for their time, commitment, and leadership to ensure we can continue to deliver exceptional care, close to home.
