Following a report by the Saranac Group LLC, the Dallas County Hospital District Board will be forming a new committee for Corporate Governance, Compliance and Ethics. The change was outlined in a resolution passed in Commissioners Court Aug. 20.
The Dallas County Hospital District Board of Managers is appointed by the Dallas County Commissioners Court, with seven members total. The board manages the Parkland Hospital and Healthcare System.
Other changes to come, stemming from the report, include improved communication between the Board and the Commissioners Court and require that future appointees to the Board provide a written acknowledgement of their fiduciary duties before taking their office.
