Board of Health

Each year the Board of Health (BOH) gives direction to the department regarding what work should be done to address community priorities. The board is made up of a county commissioner and a community spirited citizen appointed by the commissioners from each of the five counties. The BOH also has a physician and dentist. Being the administrative authority for the department the BOH governs the affairs of PHS by policy development, community engagement, continuous improvement, and oversight.
