Board Appointments 

Appointment to the Central Health Board of Managers

The Travis County Commissioners Court is seeking applications from qualified individuals to serve on the nine-member Board of Managers of Central Health. Four members of the Board are appointed by Travis County, four by the City of Austin, and a consensus candidate is jointly appointed by both entities. The Commissioners Court is seeking to fill a single vacancy for a term that will run from January 1, 2023 – December 31, 2026.  

These nine appointees serve as the Board of Managers and organize, plan and supervise Central Health in accordance with the Bylaws of the organization.  The Commissioners Court approves the budget adopted by the Central Health Board of Managers and sets its associated tax rate. The Commissioners Court also retains oversight of the District’s operations pursuant to Chapter 281 of the Texas Health and Safety Code.

The District was created to improve healthcare delivery and access to underserved residents of Travis County and is intended to promote transparency and accountability to the public in the provision of health care.  Information regarding the District’s calendar, scheduled meetings, and minutes of past meetings are available at http://www.centralhealth.net/meetings.html.

The minimum time commitment required is 10 – 15 hours per month but may exceed that due to other events in which Managers are asked to participate. Most meetings are held in the evening, although Central Health and community-related events may be equally divided between daytime and evening hours. In addition to service on the Board, Managers will be assigned to committees and/or subcommittees. 

Experience as a healthcare provider is not a necessary requirement for service but an understanding of the current healthcare system and a commitment to improving the patient experience is preferred.

SKILLS DESIRED

The Travis County Commissioners Court seeks board members with knowledge, experience, or specialization in one or more of these areas:

  • Senior management-level experience in a governmental or non-governmental entity
  • Experience serving on Boards of Directors, Advisory Boards, Community Leadership Panels, or Strategic Planning Committees of high-functioning organizations that provide services to and operate in pursuit of a high-impact mission in the community
  • Demonstrated leadership experience requiring strategic planning, execution, and maintenance of successful business operations as determined by organizational mission and values

  • Interest in serving the community, especially people with low-income who need health care in Travis County
  • Recognition of Central Health’s fiduciary responsibility to taxpayers
