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 the Regular Board Meeting on the third Tuesday of the month.

Public Meetings

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

  • The Study Session (first Tuesday of the month) is where they consider matters for later decision by the Board and other information pertinent to the District. 
  • The Educational Session (second Friday of the month) is where the commissioners are updated on programs and services.
  • The Regular Meeting (third Tuesday of the month) is where 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.
