Greene County Medical Center Board of Trustees Recognized by Iowa Hospital Association
JEFFERSON, Iowa – The Greene County Medical Center’s Board of Trustees were recognized by the Iowa Hospital Association (IHA) for their dedication and service at the 2023 IHA Governance Forum.
The Medical Center board received a Three-Star Participation certification for having 100% of members certified. Certification from the IHA involves education and governance best practices in a framework allowing boards to demonstrate their individual and collective commitment to their roles and responsibilities. Hospitals and health systems are recognized as one-, two- or three-star boards, based on the percentage of board members certified.
In addition, Trustees Doug Carman and Angie Jewett were newly certified, while Kate Neese was re-certified. All other members: Jim Schleisman, Chairperson; Doug Hawn, Vice-Chairperson; Bill Raney, Secretary/Treasurer; and Kim Bates remain certified. Certification requires members to complete 12 hours of health care-specific education over two years.
“Congratulations to the Greene County Medical Center Trustees on their individual accomplishments and for this highest of certifications from the IHA,” said CEO, Chad Butterfield. “These members bear the very important obligation of oversight and leadership of our healthcare system for the success of the organization and for the welfare of those we serve. Each one is informed and up-to-date on the latest healthcare topics, such as finance, quality, compliance and healthcare equity, while conforming to and implementing good governance practices. They are proactive and engaged in their commitment to acting in the best interests of the communities we serve.”
Greene County Medical Center was one of 16 boards honored at the Governance Forum and had three of the 54 total Trustees recognized for certifications. The IHA is a voluntary membership organization representing hospital and health system interests to business, government and consumer audiences.
