Medical Staff vote approves governance changes

Active medical staff members are expected to vote early next year on a slate of candidates for the new elected chief of staff and chief of staff-elect positions.

The proposed e-balloting comes after active medical staff members voted by a wide margin in November to approve more than a dozen bylaws changes. The new rules create an elected chief of staff and are intended generally to give the SHC Medical Staff more autonomy and ensure compliance with state law and Joint Commission regulations.

Voting in the mail-in election concluded Nov. 2. The SHC Hospital Board ratified provisions of the new governance structure in late November. [see story]
