NE Delta HSA is governed by a 17-member board that meets on a monthly basis. It is composed of members that represent the HSA’s 12 parishes. The board is an initiator of policy and uses the expertise of individual board members to enhance the ability of the board as a body rather than to substitute individual judgments for the board’s values. The board represents NE Delta HSA in determining appropriate performance and it provides a link to NE Delta HSA in the community.
The purpose of the board, on behalf of NE Delta HSA, is to see that NE Delta HSA:
- Achieves appropriate results consistent with the mission of the agency for serving persons living in the community with mental illness, addictive disorders and developmental disabilities, consistent with the terms of the enabling legislation and the MOU/Framework, signed between NE Delta HSA and Louisiana DHH
- Is consistent with the approved NE Delta HSA strategic plan and is fiscally responsive
- Avoids unacceptable risk and situations.
