Hospice Management

Hospice of Humboldt is a non-profit agency, governed by a Board of Directors which sets policy, creates a strategic plan for the future, approves the budget, oversees the finances, and monitors compliance and quality.

The Board members are elected and serve three-year terms. The Board meets every month, and each Board member also serves on one or more committees. Some committees meet monthly, others quarterly, and others only as needed.
