Governance and Leadership – Physician Committees
Physician committees form the foundation of Tower Health Partners. Physician-led projects and input drive change and innovation through ground-breaking work around quality, population health, and network growth. Committees are strategically balanced in both geography and membership to govern and service their local clinically integrated networks. All committees report to a robust physician-led Board of Managers for alignment of clinical integration program principles across the network.
Board of Managers
A Board of Managers with physician majority oversees THP operations in accordance with the mission and vision statements. By charter, the Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson positions must be held by a Tower Health Partners physician. The Board’s purpose is to oversee the development and implementation of all components of the clinical integration program, ensuring every strategic objective is beneficial to all participating physicians.
