Board of Directors

Comprised of community leaders with diverse talents and expertise, Bayhealth's Board of Directors is an all-volunteer group of professionals in the education, real estate, financial services, small business and healthcare fields who serve without pay.

Bayhealth's Board devotes substantial time to direct Bayhealth's strategic plans and goals to meet the needs of our community.

The Bayhealth Board includes Bayhealth's President and CEO and Bayhealth's President of the Medical Staff. Board members serve four-year terms. At least 25 percent are members of the Active Medical Staff, including at least two who practice primarily at Bayhealth Kent Campus and at least two who practice primarily at Bayhealth Sussex Campus.
