Tahoe Forest Hospital District receives district certification
May 30, 2016
The Association of California Healthcare Districts (ACHD) recently announced that Tahoe Forest Health System has achieved designation as a Certified Healthcare District.
As public agencies, California's Healthcare Districts have well-defined legal obligations for conducting business in a transparent and responsible manner.
To be designated as a Certified Healthcare District, a District must demonstrate compliance with Best Practices in Governance as defined by ACHD.
Compliance areas include transparency, ethics, reporting, purchasing, conflict of interest, requesting public funds and executive compensation.
These Best Practice criteria address the obligations that Healthcare Districts have with respect to conducting business in manner that is transparent to the public being served.
"This demonstrates our commitment to excellence in all we do and to good governance," said Tahoe Forest Health System CEO Harry Weis. "We are grateful to have this acknowledgement by the Association of California Healthcare Districts."
