FALLBROOK – The Association of California Healthcare Districts (ACHD) presented ACHD certification to Fallbrook Healthcare District (FHD) on Dec. 14.
As public entities, healthcare districts have well defined obligations for conducting business in a manner that is open and transparent. To assist ACHD members in demonstrating compliance with these obligations, the ACHD Governance Committee has developed a core set of standards referred to as Best Practices in Governance.
Healthcare districts that demonstrate compliance with these practices will receive the designation of ACHD Certified Healthcare District. Sheila Johnston, member services specialist/legislative advocate, attended the meeting of the FHD Board of Directors to present this award.
In addition to the ACHD recognition, Directors Barbara Mroz and William Leach were sworn in to serve for the next four years on the district’s Board of Directors.
Director Leach now holds the seat vacated by Frank Winton, M.D., who retired from the Board of Directors and was recognized for his service to the community with a plaque and certificates of recognition from Senator Joel Anderson and Assemblywoman Marie Waldron.
Lastly, the Board of Directors voted to change the name of the District, effective Feb. 1, 2017. Fallbrook Healthcare District will then be known as Fallbrook Regional Health District, which more accurately reflects the role and relevance of the district in providing health and wellness service to Bonsall, De Luz, Fallbrook and Rainbow.
