El Camino Healthcare District Explores New Governance Models for El Camino Hospital Board Structure

On Monday, May 15, 2017, the El Camino Healthcare District Board will hold a Special District Board meeting at 5:30 p.m. to consider making changes to the El Camino Hospital Board structure.

April 17, 2017 – On Monday, May 15, 2017, the El Camino Healthcare District Board will hold a Special District Board meeting at 5:30 p.m. to consider making changes to the El Camino Hospital Board structure. Nygren Consulting, a firm specializing in governance, strategy and leadership development, will present alternative governance models for discussion, public input, and a possible vote of the District Board.

The proposed governance models aim to achieve the following goals:

  • Provide for the organization’s long-term sustainability
  • Strengthen the competency composition and relevant experience of the Hospital Board
  • Attract and retain top talent in the Hospital executive team
  • Deliver on the organization’s mission and vision to advance the health of our community

Governance model scenarios include a Hospital Board where 3 or 5 District Directors would be seated on a Hospital Board with a total of either 9 or 11 members. Three alternative governance models, outlined below, are under consideration. In all three models, the El Camino Healthcare District retains its reserved rights, which allow District publicly elected members to fulfill their fiduciary duties.
