Avita Health System currently operates three hospitals and numerous clinic locations throughout Richland and Crawford counties. Over the last few years, the system has tripled in size serving multiple communities throughout the region. Over 2,000 employees and over 160 employed physicians and advanced practitioners provide high-quality healthcare to the surrounding communities.
Avita is one of the few community health systems in Ohio that has not consolidated with a larger metropolitan health system. This means that Avita’s board members live locally, where health services are provided and utilized. The Avita Board realized how difficult it was to maintain local board governance in an era of mergers and acquisitions, which is why they decided to enhance their governance ability by using a comprehensive policy governance system. The policy governance system guides the board on how to effectively govern as a group in fulfilling their leadership role.
Avita truly has a corporate culture of collaboration, where the Board, Medical Staff and Employees work together to maximize Avita’s mission of improving the health and well-being of those we serve.
