About the Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees of The Memorial Hospital volunteer an average of 20 hours per month in committee meetings, educational meetings, fundraising, community meetings, and of course, the regular monthly board meetings where decisions are made. The Trustees are entrusted with the responsibility of seeing that the hospital achieves its Mission, Vision and Values.

The Memorial Hospital has a rich heritage of Trustee leadership, which has resulted in a Hospital for the community, which has consistently addressed the health care needs of the community and provided outstanding care and service. The current Board is no different. Citizens of Craig and Moffat County should be comforted in the knowledge that their Hospital Board members are engaged in overseeing the operations of the Hospital and defining the strategic direction of the enterprise so that it consistently meets the health care needs of the people. 

Board Meeting Schedule

Beginning in January 2017, board meetings will take place on the third Thursday of every month at 6:00 p.m. in Conference Rooms A&B at the hospital. The meetings are open to the public. Anyone wishing to address the Board may do so during the Public Comment portion of the board meeting. All people wishing to address the Board must sign in at the beginning of the meeting.
