Governance & Leadership

As a Public Hospital District, EvergreenHealth is governed by a publicly-elected Board of Commissioners. The Board has ultimate responsibility and accountability for the District, which is operated on behalf of the District's constituents. The Board provides the statutory oversight to help EvergreenHealth strive to assure access by the community to high quality medical care and related services. The Commissioners approve major financial decisions for the District, and have many other responsibilities as provided by law.

EvergreenHealth and the Board of Commissioners value and appreciate input and feedback from the community. You can provide your comments to the Board a number of ways, including:

  • email us
  • postal mail to: Board of Commissioners, EvergreenHealth MS-28, 12040 NE 128th St., Kirkland, WA 98034.
  • attend our public meetings; there is an opportunity for public comment near the beginning of each meeting.

Leadership for EvergreenHealth is provided by the executive team, led by Robert Malte, CEO. They serve to advance the mission of the organization.


Public Meetings

EvergreenHealth's Board of Commissioners typically meets three times each month:

  • The first Tuesday of the month is a Study Session, which is to consider matters for later decision by the Board and other information pertinent to the District. 
  • The second Friday of the month is an Educational session, where the commissioners are updated on programs and services.
  • The third Tuesday of the month is the Board's "Regular" Meeting, at which the Board takes official action on matters before it. 

The Board reserves the ability to modify its schedule for taking action as necessary to meet the needs of the District, which it does after public notice.

The Board's meetings are generally open to the public. There is an opportunity for public comment near the beginning of the Regular Board Meeting on the third Tuesday of the month.
