Gary Marks on the two people to sit on the board. Two resignations on board (about 22 mins in on the recording). Nominating committee Needed representative from Pecan Plantation, others from Somervell County. Resume provided to all commissioners and judge. Taken to foundation board and approved. According to guidelines those need to be approved by the court. Larry Shaw, Sharon
(I wonder where the guidelines are for the approvals? I don't understand if GRMC is a private medical foundation why the board nominations have to be approved by SomCo? Is that typical for non-profits? Or written specifically into a contract?
UPDATE: Found it in the lease, p 3 under Section 2.04 Assurance of Compliance.
In order to assure that the public purpose of maintaining access to medical care in Somervell County and providing indigent health care is served, the County, through its Commissioners Court shall be allowed to appoint two (2) of its members, who do not have a conflict of interest with the Lessee, as ex officio, non voting, members of the Foundations Board of Directors and they will be given notice of, and be allowed to attend all meetings of the Foundations Board of Directors. Ex officio directors will attend the director orientation provided to all new directors and these directors shall be held to the same duty of confidentiality as all other directors in compliance with all state and federal laws and JCAHO standards regarding the confidentiality of information. Confidential information in the hospital and nursing home setting includes but is not limited to, all protected healthcare information (PHI) as that term is defines (sic) in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), all privileged information arising from the attorney-client and patient-doctor relationships, peer review privileges, quality assurance information privileges and the privacy laws regarding mental health and AIDS patients information. These representatives will report to the Commissioners Court any information relevant to assuring that the terms of this Agreement are being complied with, the public purpose of this Agreement is being served, and the County is receiving adequate consideration for the lease of the property. As an additional mechanism for assuring such compliance, the appointment of Foundation Board members is subject to the confirmation of such appointment by a majority vote of the Somervell County Commissioner's Court ("County" or "Court") If any appointment requiring confirmaiton has not been confirmed by the County through a majority of the Court within sixty (60) days of the written notification to County of a nomination, the appointed member shall be deemed to not be appointed as a member of the Board. In the event any appointee is not confirmed by the County, the Board shall appoint another person to be submitted to the Confirmation Process. The Board's proposed removal of a Director is subject to the same confirmation process..... etc.
