18 May WHY WASN’T THAT DECISION SHARED WITH THE COMMUNITY?
The decision was most certainly shared with the community on March 21, 2018. As the community governing body, the Board has both the legal and fiduciary responsibility to thoroughly deliberate, vet and approve courses of action they believe to be in the best interest of the communities Mission Health serves. The Board adhered to these responsibilities when considering, approving and then communicating its decision to explore joining HCA Healthcare.
It’s important to note that each Board member is also a community member, volunteering his or her time because they care deeply about ensuring access to high quality care for the people of western North Carolina for generations to come. It’s their commitment to their community that governs all of their decision-making.
